The Wizard of Oz is one of the most beloved and iconic motion pictures of all time filled with timeless sentiments and values cherished by multiple generations. Originally released in 1939, more than one billion consumers have experienced the classic story of Dorothy and friends in the Land of Oz. The Adora Wizard of Oz™ introductory collection of 20” vinyl dolls of Dorothy, Tin Man, Cowardly Lion, Scarecrow, Glinda and the Wicked Witch are age-graded for doll enthusiast’s ages six and up.

“We are especially proud of the Cowardly Lion,” says Peggy Vicioso, VP Marketing & Product Development for Adora. “You can imagine our excitement when upon sending the Cowardly Lion sample to Warner Bros for product approval and the approval was granted saying, ‘The best Cowardly Lion we have ever seen!’.”

The dolls were sculpted in the Adora studio and capture the facial characteristics of each beloved the character as a toddler, they are all easily recognizable and endearing. All Adora dolls are made in a fine collector quality vinyl with soft-sculpt weighted bodies and life-like hair.
