Adora Belle Wizard of Oz Dolls

I have a confession to make… The Wizard of Oz movie scares me. It always has. I have very vivid memories of watching it in black and white up in my parent’s bedroom huddled in a ball with a blanket over my eyes for most of the movie. True Story. Back in the day, the Wizard of Oz only came on TV once a year and it was a big deal to watch it, but I had this love/hate relationship with it. I still won’t watch the movie, but oddly enough, Natalie and I are going to see a local children’s theater production of it on Sunday.

I hope the characters look like this:

Marie Osmond Wizard of Oz dolls

These are collectible (with a collectible price tag of $149) Adora Belle Wizard of Oz dolls. They are Marie Osmond’s interpretation of the Wizard of Oz characters. Each one stands 12″ tall, is handcrafted porcelain, comes in collectible storybook boxes and is a limited edition of 1500.  While these are not the kind of dolls I collect, for someone who LOVES the Wizard of Oz or this style doll, I can not think of a cuter bunch!

  3. Lily Starr says:

    Honestly, the witch doll frightens me a little.

  4. sabrina says:

    Cute!

  5. AGInParadise says:

    Glinda! Oh goodness! She is gorgeous! Is there a way to buy only one of the characters?

  6. lanielover says:

    Dorthy is sooo cute!

  7. Delaney says:

    Wow Char, you are exactly like my mom! My mom never really liked it, but I actually do like it. XD

  8. Sharry says:

    Hey Char, I remember when it used to come on once a year, (during Spring Break and usually on a Sunday), and it was a big event to get to stay up and watch it. I remember watching it in B&W at home, but then when I went to my friend’s house, they had a color set, and it blew my mind that the OZ part was in color! And I nearly fell off the couch when the horse of a diffferent color actually changed colors!

    I know this may sound weird to you kids, but that’s how it was back in the “olden” days. (now I’m off to go sit in my rocking chair) LOLOL!

    They look so cute but evil at the same time!

  10. Julie says:

    Wizard of Oz–nightmare city. I would always be super excited to watch it, and then terrified for weeks after.

  11. AGfan27 says:

    I have seen the Wizard of Oz in REAL life. Like a place where they give you a tour of the Wizard of OZ.
    Oh guess who gives you the tour. Dorthy its cool.

  12. StoryTeller says:

    I hate to admit it, but I’ve only seen The Wizard of Oz once. It didn’t necessarily scare me (I was in my early teens), but I wasn’t very impressed with the story. Ah well, it was a good Americana culture lesson. ; )

  13. Heather Leabman says:

    OMG – I thought it was just me! I have been scared to death of “The Wizard of Oz” and finally fled the room when the flying moneys appeared. To this day, I really cannot watch it and you’d need a stronghold and a bribe to get me into theaters for “Oz the Great and Powerful” – I did not even go with my mom to see my ballet teacher she was the Wicked Witch) in a live production, but oddly enough, I auditioned for the Witch’s role in “Wicked” – I’m way too short. I only like the Adora toddler baby dolls that sit in a lump dressed as the characters, you can’t be afraid of babies. ;-)

  14. Keely says:

    It is a 1930′s movie ! The reason it is so big is because of the color film! And by way storyteller if you have the money you should see wicked it is so much better! Glinda looks just like me!

  15. Char says:

    Haha Sharry – you are only 2 years older than I am and thus, so many similar memories of things from our childhood.

  16. Nina says:

    Cute! I love Dorothy!

  17. april says:

    oh my how cute! I like the lion the best.

  18. Madelon says:

    I remember having a similar reaction. The wicked witch and the flying monkees scared me! It was still a yearly event, though. Gregory Maguire spoke at the National Book Festival in 2012. If I recall, he found the movie to be a bit off-putting, but then wrote the Wicked series. My favorite part of the Wizard of Oz has been the musical!

  19. JENNY says:

    Just saw Oz the Great and Powerful yesterday… ho hum boring. I actually fell asleep in the theatre! Anyhoo, they have the cutest cutest new dolls for the movie at Target and Disney store. Target has a 12 inch (or around) size China Doll who is so cute and who I had to buy right after we left the theatre and the Disney Store has a tiny one for around $10. Had to get that too…. please check out the China Doll because she is the only one worth it right now!

  20. Fiona says:

    Ugh! I meant GLINDA and the itch. Now that I think about it, I don’t really like the witch and I have fallen in love with the scarecrow. :}

  21. Alicia says:

    Soo cool a year ago our school went see a play the high school students put on, it was the wizard of oz. I also have the movie. I love it.

  22. Fiona says:

    *witch

  23. They’re cute! But, porcelin… Sorry, I don’t usally go for porcelin, though I love the wizard of oz!

  24. Lena says:

    I love OZ originally tanked at the box office. It wasn’t until re-runs that it became popular.

    I adore the two witches!

  25. Ava says:

    Eh, I’m not crazy about them. I think they look a little strange in my opinion.

  26. I saw Oz The Great and Poerful. It was good! I can’t give to much info, because you’ll have to see it yourself. But if your scared of the Original…you’ll be terrified of this one. It was pretty scary at times. ;)

  27. Char says:

    Thanks for the warning…

  28. ;)

  29. qtlol10 says:
