The OZ Museum, Part Three
|Oz trolls! Let's get kitschy!|
Remember this picture from the previous post of Big Sis watching the silent movie?
Did you wonder what Little Sis was giggling about and pointing to in the background?
I think she had just found the troll dolls.
Here are some of the other goodies we saw in The OZ Museum.
|Cool food collectibles: Sealtest cottage cheese glasses, Swift's Peanut Butter pails, Swift's peanut butter glasses, and Swift's Oz Peanut Butter jars.|
|Avon Oz bubble bath from the 1960s, 1939 Soapy Characters from the Land of Oz, MD Toilet Tissue dolls from 1971, and 1970s "Doodle Dolls" from Milton Bradley.|
|"Off to See the Wizard" 1960s television show toys and games by Mattel, 1965 Procter and Gamblepuppet theater.|
|Framed records: Story records, soundtracks, Willie Nelson's Somewhere Over the Rainbow...|
So much Oz stuff you never even knew existed. I'm in love with the peanut butter and cottage cheese containers. Wouldn't that be a blast to have in your kitchen? (Kitschen?)
Our last stop was the gift shop, full of fun souvenirs.
|This tornado machine was in the gift shop. Little Sis was brave.|
|Big Sis chose a ruby slipper ring and a little journal with a pen.|
|Little Sis chose a toy Toto.|
|And I chose the Autumn 2012 edition of "The Baum Bugle."|
|Unfortunately, Toto's Tacoz! next door was closed.|
There is also an Oz Winery in Wamego, which Mr. B and I might have checked out sans kids. Alas, we headed to the beautiful park (complete with Dutch windmill!) for a spell, then headed on our merry way! Down our own yellow brick road - er, the Flint Hills Scenic Byway.
And that concludes our visit to The Oz Museum. Again, I apologize for the picture quality, but as you can tell, most of the exhibits are under glass, and I'm no professional. I just wanted to share the experience the best I could, because I love Oz. I love Oz very much. See my blog title (the silver shoes part). See my Marvelous Land of Oz pinboard. I want to go play with Ozma and Dorothy and Scraps and The Shaggy Man and Polychrome the Rainbow's Daughter. Sigh. Tomorrow we return to our regularly scheduled programming.
