I believe in the Disney movie Pinocchio was a puppet that Geppetto carved. Before he went to bed after carving the puppet he saw a star and wish on it for the puppet to become a real boy. The blue fairy came after Geppetto went to be and made the puppet come alive but he had to prove himself in order to become a real boy. In the Adventures of Pinocchio, Mr. Cherry finds a block of pinewood and begins to carve a leg for his table, then the wood yells out not to cut so hard, Mr. C was scared and gave the wood to his neighbor Geppetto who in turn carves Pinocchio. So I guess it depends where the creators are taking the info from, knowing them a little bit of both.
