“Filled with music, dancing and plenty of chances to join in, this retelling of the classic tale is packed with fun and surprises.
When Pinocchio discovers that he’s a puppet and not a human, he sets off on an exciting adventure with his trusty sidekick cricket to find the magic potion that will transform him into a real boy.
As he travels the land in search of the potion, Pinocchio meets a whole host of larger-than-life characters. The only trouble is, each teeny-tiny lie he tells makes his wooden nose grow longer! And before he knows it, Pinocchio’s on the run from a fairground master who wants to throw him onto the woodpile.
Will he become a real boy? Or can Pinocchio – and the world around him – learn to accept this puppet boy for who he really is?
Perfect for ages 3-8, enter Pinocchio’s magical world and make lasting memories with your little ones this Christmas.”
