VTG Bob Baker Pinocchio Marionette Walt Disney Home Video Limited Edition RARE #12. First Edition Bob Baker Life Size Pinocchio Only 200 of these ever made and this is number 12! This extremely rare collectible was made for Disney Stores as a display in the early 90’s. Made by one of the most famous marionette makers in the world, Bob Baker! He stands 41″ tall and 56″ to the top of the strings. I spoke directly with Bob Baker Marionette Theater in LA and they told me that they only know of a few of these that are still in existence. They also told me that only the first 50 or so arms and legs were made of real alder wood, head and feet are plastic/resin material. There are a few blemishes on Pinocchio. He has a few minor paint chips, and minor paint cracking in his hands (as pictured). Majority of the minor blemishes are on the hands, but not limited to just the hands. The wood on hands is solid, not cracking, it’s just the paint. There is a small minor crack in his left arm (as pictured). His clothing also has some minor blemishes that MAY come out if washed, majority of those blemishes are small circular marks throughout the hat, the feather on the hat also does have some damage and ruffling. (as pictured), also a few more noticeable spots along his collar. The Bob Baker information plaque on the mannequin handle does have a small crack in it, it does not affect its use or mobility. I have tried to describe and take photos of all defects, however, he is by no means in mint condition, condition is overall very good, but not mint. Strings are in tact, may have been restrung over the years, Im not 100% sure. Bob Baker Marionette Theater is still operating today, and they are willing to touch up these rare collectibles and happy to perform repairs for a reasonable price. Thank you for your interest, as I said, do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or requests for additional details and/or pictures.
