Collectible Wizard of Oz Funko Plushies
Can YOU Resist the Wizard of Oz Funko Plushies?
They are just too darn cute, these Wizard of Oz Funko plushies. Whether or not you have a favorite character -- like Dorothy Gale, the Tin Man, the Cowardly Lion, the Scarecrow, the Wicked Witch or the Flying Monkey -- you are likely to find yourself liking them ALL.
Funko released these Wizard of Oz plushies on August 17, 2010 and each one is a soft and cuddly plush toy that measures 7 inches tall and is recommended for children 3 years of age and up. They are an inexpensive way to add to an existing Wizard of Oz collection or to start a collection although I think they are perfectly priced to be given to a child to PLAY with and not to simply collect.
I'll get ALL the Wizard of Oz Funko Plushies, my pretty!
Dorothy Gale Plushie
Start your collection with Dorothy, she's as cute as a button and exactly as you remember her, albeit in a slightly twisted way. She is wearing her blue and white checkered dress and the famous ruby slippers. Never alone for long, she is carrying Toto in his basket, too.
The first of Dorothy's friends to join her on the journey to visit the Wizard of Oz was the Scarecrow. He thought that he needed a brain. However, under his hat, he already has a brain which he uses throughout their journey. The brain that the Wiz grants him in the end is symbolic.
Tin Man Plushie
The Tin Man, who can forget him and here he is sporting the heart he was given by the Wizard of Oz. Amazon is cute when they say that "he is ready to add some love to your collection." He is the second friend that Dorothy made whilst traveling to the Emerald City. The heart granted to him by the Wizard of Oz is only sumbolic, of course, as the Tin Man has plenty of love for everyone.
Cowardly Lion Plushie
Dorothy's friend, the cowardly lion, is as cute as ever and ready to protect you and your home. The lion is the final friend that Dorothy makes as she travels toward the Emerald City. He realizes that it is not noble to be a cowardly lion when you are supposed to be the king of the beasts and he hopes that he can obtain some courage from the Wizard of Oz. Of course, fans of the movie know that he already possesses plenty of courage, which he displays when he protects Dorothy.
Funko's Wicked Witch Plushie
Be scared, be very scared of the Wicked Witch from the Wizard of Oz although I cannot help but think this witch is, well, kind of cute. However, she is green skinned and sporting her broomstick, ready to reek havoc so make sure to hide your ruby slippers!
The Wizard of Oz Funko Plushie Flying Monkey - I'm thinking you might want more than one of these monkeys...
Some people do NOT love L. Frank Baum's flying monkeys because they did the dirty work for the Wicked Witch of the West against Dorothy Gale and her friends. However, THIS flying monkey is fun...in his own evil way. You will recognize him immediately dressed as he is with vest and hat. As Amazon says, "he's ready to protect your castle at all costs."
