The new movie, Legends of Oz – Dorothy’s Return, picks up where The Wonderful Wizard of Oz left off. Dorothy goes back to Oz to help her old friends, while introducing her to a whole new set of endearing characters. When we were at Toy Fair this year, we were introduced to the Legends of Oz dolls being produced by Bandai. A few weeks ago Diana did a review of the larger Dorothy doll from Legends of Oz – a 15″ doll that we will be doing a giveaway for soon, and earlier this week, Bandai sent us the 11″ Dorothy fashion doll to review.
The 11″ fashion doll Dorothy and Toto comes packaged like most dolls of its kind. Cardboard, plastic, twist ties and clear elastic bands – not too hard to de-box. Dorothy comes dressed in her signature outfit which is a denim dress, cowboy boots, a purse and her dog.
Dorothy has such a sweet painted face. Her hair comes in braids. Her hair is very soft, but they put some kind of glue/gel on the ends to keep them in place. She has rooted hair that is quite long.
Here is a closer look at her dress. Natalie took it off of Dorothy and put it on the Monster High and Every After High dolls. They could wear Dorothy’s dress but Dorothy is not as unrealistically skinny as those dolls so she can’t wear their clothes.
How do you like her boots? I think they are so cute – I like the blue accents.
Dorothy’s dress has a little bling on it and you can get a better look at her purse which opens so she can put her China Doll friend in it.
In this movie Toto is a black Scottie dog. He is made of plastic and has painted features.
I love the color of Dorothy’s hair. She really is quite a pretty doll and brings an updated look to the character.
“Just follow the yellow brick road, Toto”, says Dorothy.
“Um, Dorothy – this is a SIDEWALK!” says Toto.
“Use your imagination silly dog,” giggled Dorothy right back!
You can buy Legends of Oz Dorothy and Toto for about $20 at retailers such as Amazon, Toys R Us and Target now. There is also the 15″ version of the doll which we will be giving away soon, a singing fashion doll version and plenty of plushies of Dorothy’s new friends.
I have to thank Natalie for taking such beautiful photos of Dorothy and Toto this afternoon! So pretty!
