In 1939 a film called ‘The Wizard of Oz’ was released in theaters. There are many lovely dolls, figures, and figurines that resemble these movie characters. The ‘Wizard of Oz’ was based on a story written by Frank L. Baum called ‘The Wonderful Wizard of Oz’ in 1900. In ‘The Wizard of Oz’, Judy Garland played a farm girl named Dorothy Gale from Kansas who lived with her. Aunt Em, Uncle Henry, three farmhands and their dog Toto. Near the beginning of the story, Toto, Dorothy’s dog, bites Miss Elmira Gulch. Miss Gulch says that she will get the town sheriff to take her little dog away to be destroyed. Dorothy runs off with her dog Toto from her to keep him safe. She meets Professor Marvel, a fortune teller on the road. He lies to Dorothy that her aunt Em is sick with grief because Dorothy ran away from her. Dorothy returns to the farm. She cannot join her family, which is locked in the storm cellar. She is knocked unconscious by a window frame during a tornado. She wakes up when the house is blown up by the huge tornado. When the farm lands, she finds herself in unfamiliar territory.
Glinda, the good witch of the north, arrives in a floating bubble and tells Dorothy that the wicked witch of the east died when the farm landed on her.
There is a beautiful figurine available on the internet that looks like beautiful Glinda with long golden hair while holding jeweled amulets from one hand to the other. The charms are of Dorothy’s dog Toto, the ruby red slippers, a rainbow, the Tin Man’s heart, and the Emerald City. This Glinda figure is wearing a beautiful pink dress. On the skirt of this dress is an image of Scarecrow, Tin Man, Dorothy, and Lion.
The Wicked Witch of the West (the sister of the late Wicked Witch) appears from a puff of smoke and tries to claim the ruby red slippers. Glinda tells the witch that her powers won’t work in Munchkinland. The Wicked Witch of the West tells Dorothy that she is going to get revenge on her and her dog, Toto.
Dorothy fears the Wicked Witch of the West who looks like Elmira Gulch. There is a figure of the Wicked Witch of the West holding a broom in the air that is sold on the Internet. She is eighteen inches tall, has a green face, a long crooked nose, and a pointy black hat with a matching dress. She has many green jewels around the waist of her dress. The witch also has the same green stones circling the bottom of her skirt and also on the brim of her matching hat.
Glinda the good witch advises Dorothy to find the Wizard of Oz in the Emerald City and ask for his help. She tells him to follow the yellow brick road to get to Emerald City. As Dorothy searches for a land called the Emerald City, her imagination sends her on a journey to find the Wizard of Oz. She meets many interesting characters who resemble her family and friends of hers that she actually lives with.
First, Dorothy meets the Scarecrow who wants a brain. A Scarecrow figure is available with a blue jumpsuit. He also dons a blue straw hat and a long-sleeved plaid shirt with a large white collar.
Dorothy also meets the tin man who longs for a heart. There is also a nice Tin Man figure available on the internet. He is holding a silver axe. Tin Man wears a metallic silver suit with a matching silver belt and boots. He is a great collector’s item. Lion is another friend that Dorothy meets on the road. The Cowardly Lion craves courage. There is also a figure that resembles Leon. The gold-colored cowardly lion has a matching mane and tail. This figurine would make another beautiful addition to a Wizard of Oz collection.
I have seen a very beautiful Dorothy Gale doll, holding her black dog, Toto. She is wearing a blue ribbon. She is wearing a white blouse and a blue jersey dress with a knee-length skirt. She also wears blue socks to match the traditional ruby red slippers. She is very pretty and would make a great keepsake for any avid collector. she is a great collector doll.
Dorothy and her friends finally meet Oz. He tells them that they already had the attributes they’ve been looking for. Oz says that he is from Kansas too and offers to take Dorothy home in her hot air balloon. His dog Toto jumps out of the basket, Dorothy follows him and Oz continues without them.
Glinda tells Dorothy that she and Toto can come home. She tells Dorothy to kick back on her heels, close her eyes, and keep saying “there’s no place like home.” Dorothy wakes up in her bed on the farm surrounded by loved ones. She tells them her adventures.
‘The Wizard of Oz’ is not only a great classic film, but it has also been named the most watched film by the Library of Congress.
