Phoebe & Iris
Poet and Astronomer
Phoebe – “These are the stables where I take care of a wonderful horse. In the afternoon, after classes, my friends meet me here and we can go for a ride. On quiet afternoons I just sit here and write poetry.
Iris – “I love Astronomy, and this is the balconey outside the school’s observatory. I spend lots of time here watching the stars and sometimes, on special occasions, I have my friends come over for a party.”
Wizard of Oz would be shown on TV once a year – in black & white back then – and I would be so excited to be able to watch it. The waiting was always worth it as the movie was just magical to me everytime. I would get scared during the Wicked Witch scenes, dream big when the Good Witch appeared, skip down the yellow brick road and sing along with the Munchkins.
North American Bear Company has created 7.5″ plush dolls in 6 of the characters – Dorothy (with Toto), Wicked Witch, Good Witch, Cowardly Lion, Scarecrow and the Tin Woodman. Beautiful little characters made of tricot, cotton, satin, Tulle and plush with an elastic loop on the back for finger puppet play or for hanging from a backpack. Girls can re-create their own version of the Wonderful Wizard of Oz or keep them close as they watch the movie – now in color of course and available more than once a year – oh how times have changed!
Follow that yellow brick road!
