Description of dolls Pinocchio
"Buratino" in the literal translation from the Italian language means "wooden doll". Such dolls were used in mobile theaters as actors performing the main roles. In the main character of the fairy tale, this character turned into the efforts of A. Tolstoy, who told the children about the adventures of the boy. The wooden doll of Pinocchio revives and continues to please small readers to this day. The Russian writer originally retold, remade in his own way the tale of another author, Carlo Collodi, which is called "Pinocchio."
Description of dolls Pinocchio
As you know, the boy's father was Carlo, elderly and lonely. Old friend Giuseppe gives him a log, advising him to make a talking son out of him, so that Carlo is not so lonely. He cuts out a doll from a log. Carlo makes clothes for his creation from paper (because of poverty). A cap on his head makes of his own sock. This is the external description of the doll of Pinocchio, quoted by the writer in the work. Yes, and how did we forget? The first thing that catches your eye is the nose of a wooden boy! It is very long, disproportionate to the general proportions of the body. As Pope Carlo did not try to make it shorter, it's all in vain. He grew up again and again, becoming a long one. As a result, Pinocchio remains with his famous nose, which the boy everywhere puts, because he is all interesting and curious!
How to name?
Cut from a tree character immediately gets a name from his father. Carlo says that this name will bring happiness, that he supposedly knew a family where everyone was called Pinocchio. And they all lived well and fun. Therefore, the old man calls Pinatino's son.
The description of the Pinocchio doll can be continued by listing the main character traits of Tolstoy's fairy tale character. First, of course, he is simple-minded and straightforward, with "short thoughts". But, despite this, decisive, cheerful and mischievous - let us recall at least a sketch, when a wooden boy first enters the puppet theater and is not afraid to go on stage. He is very curious and loves all sorts of adventures. And they do not keep themselves waiting long! And Pinocchio appreciates friendship, mutual assistance in a difficult moment. In his travels for the golden key he meets Tortilla, acquires friends. Satellites of his become Malvina, a doll with blue hair, Pierrot, Artemon. Even to enemies (fox Alice, Cat Basilio, Carabas, Duramar), a wooden boy is fun and fighting.
The description of the Buratino doll can not be imagined without the Golden Key. This is one of the main attributes, the symbol of a happy future, the prospects that open beyond the horizon. In pursuit of this subject Karabas-Barabas tries to fool Pinocchio, but it is unlikely he will succeed. This mischievous person can fool anyone, even a cunning fox Alice.
Differences from Pinocchio
Buratino significantly differs from the character of another familiar children (most likely, according to the American cartoon) fairy tales. Pinocchio's nose grows all the time, as he talks untruth. At the end of the story Pinocchio is re-educated and turns into an exemplary boy. Pinocchio remains to the end wooden, not taking into account the attempts of re-education on the part of Pope Carlo and Malvina. But with all this, the domestic image of the protagonist is much kinder and more amusing than Italian. In addition, Koloddi lacks the talking tortoise Tortilla, and the Golden Key itself, and the boy's dreams of theater and jackets for the old man Carlo.
How do children play the doll of Pinocchio?
Most likely, children, using a puppet of Pinocchio, will act out scenes from a book fairy-tale or action from a famous Soviet film (provided that you show it to them beforehand). Parents can help them, play along. Someone will be Malvina, and someone will get the role of Karabas-Barabas. You can also arrange a small home puppet theater, but for this you will have to buy figurines and other fairy tale characters.
