“What are you going to do with my dog? Give him back to me!“ “All in good time, my little pretty, all in good time.“ “Please, give me back my dog!“ “Certainly, certainly...”

With these famous lines we conjure up one of the greatest antagonistic villains of all times - Wicked Witch of the West. Over the decades, audiences have grown to love this colourful character -- making her second only to Dorothy in terms of popularity.

As part of the hugely popular series which celebrated MGM’s 1939 film classic “The Wizard of Oz”, by far the most famous adaptation of L. Frank Baum’s novel, Steiff are delighted to offer all Oz fans a wonderful Wicked Witch who flies in the villainous footsteps of her predecessor.

Allow her to cast her spell on you, you won’t regret it!

Jim Shore Wizard of Oz Ornaments 2016

Expected release is July 1.  No pricing info available as yet.  I imagine these will be slightly smaller than the mini figurines (4.5 inches) which are $30 and Jim Shore's regular unlicensed ornaments are $20 so I expect the price will fall somewhere in between.
