Return to Oz Museum Tour.... Part 2

As promised here is another little glimpse inside the museum....

This is a One of a kind Dorothy Doll that a friend of mine made for me. I have never shown any photos of this doll before. She stands about 12 inches tall and comes with Billina and a Lunch pale.

I have a few more Return to oz dolls that are much smaller than this one. They can be viewed in this video:

Quick Little Update...

So many changes to the site, where to start. We have now completed everything up to the Interactive Oz page. Many new things were added, including more videos, so check them all out again. Here is a list of what has been updated so far:

Articles & Interviews

Behind the Scenes

Cast & Characters ( Main page only )

Fan Art

Interactive Oz

That may not sound like much but there are many sub-pages within them. We do still need to get Marketing, Memorabilia, Promotional Material, Set & costume, Surviving Props, Links, and our Contact Page updated... Well it is a work in progress and I would say we are half way through. Stay tuned for the entire site re-mastered!

The Memorabilia will take a while, but we are planning to add a bunch of memorabilia to the pages too so it will be worth the wait.

Return to Oz Museum Tour.... Part 1

Over the Next few weeks, while updating our entire website, we will also let you in on our private Return to Oz museum / Archive. This will entail showing photos and talking about the collection. And then we will end the series with a special video of the museum.

As for today I decided to start with this Stone Lion. As some of you may know, I am lucky enough to own a few original Return to Oz props. One of which is this Stone Lion. He is made out of actual concrete and stands about 2 feet tall. He was imported to the Us from the Uk.

This lion was casted into about 10 replicas which were sold on ebay and various other places. But the original resides here in our museum...

Archive Update

After some more research it turns out that the Disney Archive has a few more props that are not on Display. Here is what the Archive department said about Return to Oz:

"Yes, we are very proud to have a very comprehensive representation of artifacts from Return to Oz, including Dorothy's costume, complete with her ruby slippers, and her lunch pails. We also have the Tin Woodsman, Jack Pumpkinhead and even the Gnome King's ruby slippers. Tik Tok was on display for many years at Disney's Hollywood Studios; A Disney archivist is currently restoring him as there are plans to use him in an upcoming Archives exhibit."

How cool is that? I would LOVE to see some of these props on Display... Or even for sale... ( one can dream... )

And here is a little bonus, I found another photo of the props.

These photos have been updated on the Surviving Prop pages....

Stay Tuned for more on Return to oz.
