Happy August! We are down to just two more weeks until school starts here in Texas. It’s hard to believe summer came and ended so quickly. We are trying to fill our days with fun activities, projects, friends and some much needed down time.
During that coveted down time I let the girls watch a show or two on the iPad while I work. This summer they found the most adorable show called Lost in Oz on Amazon Prime Video. The new original series on Amazon Kids is a modern take on the beloved classic, Wizard of Oz and so captivating I often found myself watching along.
The plot line is pretty much as follows:
In Lost in Oz, 12-year-old Dorothy Gale discovers her mother’s magical travel journal hidden beneath the floorboards of their Kansas home. The book triggers a tornado, which rips her house from its foundation and transports Dorothy and her dog, Toto, to Emerald City, a bustling, modern, metropolis. In order to get home, Dorothy learns she must acquire every element on Oz’s “periodic table of magic” – while the city faces the worst magic drought in eons! Along the way, Dorothy and Toto meet unlikely allies in West, Ojo, Reigh the Lion, Scarecrow, and Glinda the Good, who are each eager to help, but struggling with their own problems. Together, they navigate the magical landscape of Oz while undergoing their own unique journeys of self-discovery.
Here’s a little trailer for you to get a sense of the tone and characters of the show.
My kids have fallen so in love with the series that I decided to make them some ‘Yellow Brick Line’ cupcakes to enjoy while they watch. I designed cupcake toppers and wrappers with the show’s characters to surprise them. They LOVED it!
