Florida Wizard of Oz museum - Collectible Figurines
One of the Cocoa Beach attractions in Wizard of Oz museum is display of various figurines related to Wizard of Oz theme.
The Wizard of Oz is a classic movie that has some of the most memorable characters. Any serious collector has to have the main characters captured in miniature as Wizard of Oz Figurines. One problem though, because of the popularity of the films and stories, there are literally 1000’s of figurines to collect. Figurines are created on many mediums including cast resins/plastics, wood, glass or porcelain. Some are hand painted, others are glazed. Value is based on rarity, materials, craftsmanship and age. Below is a list of the Top 10 that would make your collection stand out among the crowd of other collectors. Some are expensive, some cheap, others rare, but all are adorable!
Figurines that features the start of Dorothy’s plight that leads her on an unforgettable journey, ff course, no Wizard of Oz Figurines collection can be complete without a figurine of the Yellow Brick Road. Some figurine was created by LENOX and is crafted out of hand-painted Ivory in China and accented with 24 Karat Gold. Jim Shores figurines, Wizard of Oz 3D Metal / Tin Art Dorothy, Scarecrow, Tin Man and Cowardly Lion pop out in this 3D Metal Art Picture. Made by Enesco Corporation, dated 1999. Of course my favorite is Jim Shore’s Glinda the Witch Nesting Dolls Figurine. This is a beautiful, hand painted, hand carved nesting doll from the master, Jim Shore. You get Glinda, Dorothy and her little dog Toto and the Wicked Witch. You can display them as one piece or separate into 4 different pieces!
Below are images of a few items that are displayed in the museum.
