Build A Bear Tease and Update

Well, I guess actually more than a tease. The "ruby slippers" are already on the website for $7.50.

Build A Bear told me a couple of days ago, the Oz collection will be releasing online this month and in stores next month.  Build a Bear posted the bottom photo on Facebook today. 

Rumors are going around that have me wondering if the collection won't be released this week after the sale is over. Keep checking daily!

Build A Bear!!!!!!!!

No release date or product details as of yet but I have a feeling the release will be coming very soon!!  I was told at the store this will be an online only release. I'm hoping to get more confirmation soon. A bit disappointing. I was really looking forward to seeing product in the stores. 

Since the first Oz release in 2005, Build A Bear has only gotten more imaginative with their bears and clothing.  I can not wait to see what's planned for Oz.  Stay tuned! And watch

Thank you Joy Hulse for sharing this news!!!  

Mego Single Dorothy and Wicked Witch

This was originally rumored to be an Australian release so imagine my surprise when they showed up on Amazon and!!!!!  Such a relief to not have to track these down on the foreign market.  

They are $16.99 each

For those that don't have the single Cowardly Lion or the Dorothy/Wicked Witch 2 pack, Target stores have them marked down for clearance.

Thank you Kurt Raymond for showing me they are also available at Walmart

Origami Owl IRL Photos, Out of Stocks, and Reminder

The Land of Oz Collection by Origami Owl has been more popular than even they anticipated!!  There was such a rush to order the website crashed a few times, but everyone eventually got through and the orders have shipped very fast.  Oz fans are really pleased with the actual product.  I'll post more tomorrow when my order arrives, but Cathy Gough was kind enough to pass photos of product I hadn't ordered yet, including the limited edition of 500 pendant!!  

The Large Silver Tornado Window Plate and Yellow Brick Road Swarovski Crystals Stardust Pack are out of stock at this time. It is unknown if stock will replenish.  So Congrats to everyone that jumped on those pieces quickly.

The Munchkinland Collection launches Tuesday the 21st at 5 PM Central.

Stay Tuned!!!
