Miscellaneous March Updates

Jim Whitcomb has informed me that the We're Off to See the Wizard Illuminated Motion Ornament Collection from Bradford Editons has been cancelled. Very disappointing. In my opinion, this series was going to be much better than many of their recent offerings. Hopefully, they'll reconsider and produce them for the 70th anniversary next year. See ornament ad here:

The Heavenly Handfuls are now available for purchase.

The dolls can be purchased separately. Karen Owens will be carrying all of the dolls.

Sci Fi's Tin Man 2 disc DVD release has a third bonus disc exclusively at Borders. The three disc edition will be available only while supplies last. Contact your local Borders.

Almost the entire Barbie line is sold out from Mattel. The Winkie can still be purchased from . I do not know if there are still plans to release the lullaby munchkin independent of the two witches.

Hallmark has another ozzy birthday card. The cover pictures a blue gingham skirt with a little girl's feet wearing white socks and "ruby slippers". The slippers are red glittered shoes that are a little scuffed giving the idea the shoes are much loved. The inside reads: "There's No One Like You....There's No One Like You.... Happy Birthday." The official Wizard of Oz logo is on the back. It was in the Snapshots section under Friend Birthday and sells for $2.29.
