Master Replicas is planning to release an expensive ($300!) limited edition replica of the original Pinocchio marionette used by animators on the 1941 film as a reference model – you can see it online – but wouldn’t it be much more fun to make your own?

Someone recently sent in to my web site some beautiful scans of an old issue of Popular Science that explains exactly how to do just that. The article was part of Disney’s original Pinocchio publicity campaign in the 1940s.

I’ve posted the scans on my site along with suggested resources for anyone who wants to try making one of these themselves (some of the materials mentioned in the original article are no longer available). – How to Make A Pinocchio Marionette – Link.
