Wizard of Oz & Vintage Toys

Author L. Frank Baum wrote 13 sequels to The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, three of them while wintering in Coronado. Many of Baum's books and short stories have episodes set in San Diego, La Jolla, and Point Loma as well. The Whaley House Museum Shop carries the full collection of Baum's 14 Oz books, plus numerous other Baum titles, many newly in print for the first time in decades, introducing this successful "local" author to new generations.

Recapture the joy of childhood or introduce a young friend to some old-time fun with our selection of historical games and toys. From slide whistles and kazoos to balsa wood airplanes and vintage card games, magic tricks and classic board games like Snakes & Ladders or Barnstormer, these unusual and hard-to-find items make great gifts.
