In 1946, Russell Manufacturing Company produced for Disney Studios a mini-card game based on the animated movie Pinocchio. This vintage family card game is a bidding and trick-taking game along the lines of euchre or sheepshead.
The 48 cards are in good condition, free to tears, creases or wear. Though the colors remain bright, the cards have yellowed a bit with age. They feature the main characters of the Pinocchio story: Geppetto, Jiminy Cricket, Figaro, Cleo, the Blue Fairy, Pinocchio himself, and others. The card box has tape on the right-hand front seam. The paper instruction guide remains in good condition.
The charming Pinocchio mini-card game would make for an ideal gift for anyone who collects Disney memorabilia. It also would be an excellent addition to a collector’s set of vintage games.
