Tiny Tik-Tok Time!

The little guy at right is the 3" tall plastic Tik-Tok toy from Disney's Return to Oz film. He was made by Hart á Hart for sale in Tokyo Disneyland in 1985.

Several years ago I made an animated gif of him. In fact, he used to have a mySpace page of his very own! He's been living on my computer for quite a while and he wanted to come out and play. While his arms are articulated, and he will rotate at the waist, these little Tik-Toks do not actually move by themselves (except at night when you aren't looking)

The same toy company made little versions of the Scarecrow, Jack Pumpkinhead and the Tin Woodman as well - in addition to a number of much bigger Return to Oz toys.

Click on either of the two links that follow to check out the large-size Tik Tok and Scarecrow in these older blog posts. I'll try to post a report on little Tik-Tok's three friends in the coming weeks.

I was looking for a picture of Tik-Tok today and came across your blog post. AMAZING! I'm so jealous that you have this.
