I know someone who is obsessed with Pinocchio. Does anyone have access to interesting Pinocchio dolls, ornaments, or similar artifacts?

I just saw a Pinocchio ornament at Fireworks the other day… (art-ish type stores in the Seattle area). Alas, I don't see it on their website.

In my opinion, stay away from the movie remake (with Roberto Benigni).
I adore his early work, and Life is Beautiful was deserving of its Ocsar win, but that Pinocchio movie is really bad.

Whatever you do, don't buy the original book by Collodi. Even in the original Italian, it's awful-- one long diatribe summed up as "You rotten little boy, how could you do that to your poor Daddy?" interspersed with brief episodes that make no sense but act as a vehicle for said diatribe over and over again.

Ah, Moshe, when you're wrong, you're really, really wrong! Collodi's book is amazing.

The weasels!

azamingly awful. My wife who doesn't read Italian thought maybe it was a bad translation; I assured her not.
