Sold: WIZARD OF OZ COLORFORMS Book Hard-to-Find ca. 1960 Sticker Book Color-forms


Out of stock


Here is another unusual Wizard of Oz item. This Wizard of Oz “Colorforms” book has individual body parts that make up Dorothy, the Tin Woodman, The Cowardly Lion, the Scarecrow, Billina the hen, and Glinda the Good. The pieces adhere to a black backing sheet; then you can put them into the story directly on the book’s 12 colorful, sturdy pages. Pieces are reusable so you can change the story a bit!

Undated, but I believe this is from circa 1960, as 100 Years of Oz dates the “We’re Off to See the Wizard” Colorforms book at 1967, and I assume this came out before. Published by Random House. A scarce item–try to find others online!

Condition is good with some wear. The front cover has a little scratching but is still attractive. Rear cover has a little staining on one side. Inside, 8 of the ~40 stickers are missing; the others are still on the original sheet, but may not have enough stick-em to stick to the pages any more. The first three pages have sticky residue, scuffing and ink transfer from some of the stickers, which is common with this title. The rest of the pages are in nice shape with still vibrant colors. A fun Oz collectible.
