Possibly it’s the material aspect of Pinocchio that has inspired designers to turn our iconic wooden friend into something utilitarian. His nose seems particularly handy for a number of things.   I suppose form really does follow function.

Cute and practical, Pinocchio’s nose substitutes the handle, while the brush is Pinocchio’s smiling face and his cap is the brush stand. Poor Pinocchio has to do the toilet cleaning also for all the lies he said.” (Gizmodiva.com)
