We are pleased to present "Dorothy" - the centerpiece of our exciting series based on the classic MGM motion picture The Wizard of Oz The Kansas farmgirl swept over the rainbow into the Land of Oz was unforgettably portrayed by Judy Garland in the 1939 film.

Now, this beloved film character has been vividly brought to life for the first time in the medium of molded felt.

Standing 16" tall, Dorothy is fully jointed at shoulders, hips and neck with the R. John Wright ball & socket jointing system with internal wood mechanism. She has a realistic molded felt torso and limbs and her lovely hands have individual fingers. The compelling portrait face is finely modeled in a true likeness with delicate hand painted features. Dorothy's meticulously hand-knotted wig is made of the finest custom-dyed mohair and precisely styled.

Oz's beloved heroine is outfitted in the trademark costume consisting of a blouse of fine Italian cotton organdy with custom-dyed rickrack trim, period undergarments, and a pinafore dress tailored of imported blue checked cotton fabric. The dress is exactly patterned after the original design by famed MGM costumer, Adrian, with authentic A-line styling and includes such details as the hidden pocket in the side seam! On her feet, Dorothy wears cotton anklets and detailed miniature replicas of the iconic Ruby Slippers - hand cobbled out of fine leather and covered in micro sequins, rhinestones, and faceted crystals. On one arm, Dorothy carries a custom made miniature of the basket in the film with checkered napkin inside. No effort has been spared to make this the most authentic version of this beloved character ever created.

Dorothy is produced in a very limited edition of just 350 pieces worldwide . Each doll will come enclosed in a deluxe presentation box with the accompanying signed and numbered certificate of authenticity and the forms for owner registration. Matching numbers will be provided to other characters in the Wizard of Oz series subject to availability.
