Have you seen the movie Legends of Oz Dorothy’s Return yet? It is a 3-D animated musical based on the adventure books by Roger Stanton Baum – the great-grandson of Wizard of Oz creator L. Frank Baum. The story line is somewhat of a continuation of the story – Dorothy wakes up to post-tornado Kansas only to be whisked back to Oz to try to save her friends and restore order and happiness to the Emerald City.
The Madame Alexander Doll Company has created a line of six 12″ tall plush dolls based on the characters in the movie. As part of the Madame Alexander Moms Advisory Board, I was sent a set of the dolls to review. Natalie is a huge Wizard of Oz fan and loves creating stories. Let’s see what she created.
“Oh Dorothy, you are back! We need you – Oz is in disarray and you are the only person who can save us.” cried Glinda!
Dorothy headed back into Oz and gathered her friends starting with Scarecrow and Tin Man.
Along the way the trio found China Princess sitting on the ground in tears.
“Come with us China Princess – we have a plan and we need you!” said Dorothy.
“But first, where is lion? We must find him,” continued Dorothy.
“I thought you would never find me,” quivered the Lion.
“Let’s go,” said Dorothy, “no time to talk, we are on a mission!”
“Seeing Dorothy again just makes my heart tick,” squeaked Tin Man.
“I don’t think we can ever let her leave again,” the others chimed in.
The gang is all here!!
The Legends of Oz collection is perfect for Wizard fans! Each doll is carefully crafted and their costumes are surprisingly detailed. Each doll is $15 and can be purchased at madamealexander.com and some specialty retailers.
Which character is your favorite? Mine is definitely that cheery Tin Man!
