Congrats to winner, Kristie!
Thanks to Genn Comm for a doll to review, as well as providing a doll for the giveaway. All opinions mine.
Ah, the Wizard of Oz: one of my all-time favorite movies!
I remember, as a child, looking forward to its annual airing on TV. The witch was so scary, and despite the fact that I watched the movie over and over, it never lost its sense of excitement. Those trees that threw apples! The flying monkeys! The witch’s scary castle, and — gosh — would Dorothy and Toto escape before that hour glass ran out???
Now, a new movie is about to be released (May 9, in fact): Legends of Oz: Dorothy’s Return.
The movie is a 3-D sequel that follows Dorothy, who has just returned from her trip to Oz. A magical rainbow transports her back to Oz, where she encounters her pals the scarecrow, tin man, and lion for another adventure. This time, Dorothy’s friends are held captive, while she and several new friends set out to rescue them.
The new film features songs by Academy Award-nominated singer/songwriter Bryan Adams.
You know, I always think it’s hard to improve upon the original with movies. Still, this looks good to me, and I’d enjoy seeing it.
In conjunction with the movie’s release, Bandai America’s is introducing a line of dolls. Some of them even sing!
The dolls are available at Toys R’ Us, Target and Wal-Mart. The singing Dorothy doll featuring two song clips from the movie “One Day” and “Work With Me.” There are also collectible figures available from the movie (great for creative play!), and plush versions of several of the characters.
Check out the doll — so cute! When I was a child, I would have had a field day acting out scenes from the Wizard of Oz with this doll, and I know my girls would have as well.
Thanks to Genn Comm, one of you can win the same doll! Enter using the rafflecopter form below by May 14, and I’ll choose a random winner May 15.
