Several other Jim Shore Heartwood Creek collections are inspired by some of Jim's childhood memories. The, "Wizard of Oz", collection is one of these collections. With Dorothy and the Tin Man along with the rest of the gang heading down that yellow brick road trying to get Dorothy home it is hard not to take a trip down memory lane.
