So today, I took a break from writing to attend a weekly auction that occurs just about a mile down from where I work. Just about every week, I come across something Oz-related, though usually its something from the MGM 1939 Wizard of Oz movie.
To be honest, I'm not a collector of movie-related stuff. I lean more towards anything to do with L. Frank Baum's books of Oz. I also like stuff from any Oz animated films or television shows. It just so happens that tonight, I ran across an Oz item that reminded me of my own childhood.
A look at the artwork reveals some wonderful images that are based on the cartoon show of the late 50's that I used to watch back when I was but a youngling.
Now, this wonderful toy has a new home, right next to my other Oz finds from auctions, Goodwill and yard sales!
