Vintage Style Wizard of Oz Baby Nursery Decorations

I'm not sure if our baby's Wizard of Oz nursery theme really qualifies as "vintage", but it's definitely one of a kind and I'm proud of it. When we found out that we were having a girl, I immediately asked my mother if we could possibly pull off a Wizard of Oz nursery theme.

When she responded that we could certainly try; the concept of my baby girl's nursery room was born!

decorations for your baby's Wizard of Oz themed nursery!

Q: What inspired you to decorate your baby girl's room in this particular theme? Were you looking for just any vintage movie theme or does this old film hold special meaning for you?

I have loved the story of the Wizard of Oz for years and have been an avid collector of Oz memorabilia and collectibles.

Q: I am always on the lookout for unique nursery ideas and bedding collections and I am pretty sure that there are no crib sets available in this theme available. Did you buy some Wizard of Oz themed fabric and make it yourself? :
We were fortunate enough to find fabric that Grandma used to make the custom bedding set!

Q: I can tell from your nursery pictures that you have used many desirable pieces of collectible movie memorabilia to decorate the nursery and it looks amazing. Can you tell us a little about the items that you chose?
We dressed up some very old lamps with new lamp shades and we used some figurines of the characters to make the baby's crib mobile.

Q: What is your favorite feature in your baby girl's vintage Wizard of Oz baby nursery theme?

I love each and every item that I've collected through the years but as far as my favorite part of decorating the nursery, I would have to say the wall mural. The winding Yellow Brick Road with the Emerald City at the end makes you feel like you've just landed in Oz!

From the webmaster:
Shelley, your vintage nursery ideas certainly do qualify in this category! Thanks so much for sharing your Oz themed nursery pictures with everyone here at Unique Baby Gear Ideas!

Vintage Little Folks Wizard of Oz Baby Crib
by: Anonymous

I recently purchased a vintage Little Folks Wizard of Oz baby crib. The baby bed has a white head board and foot board featuring characters from the Wizard of Oz story. The side rails are solid green.

I would like to know what year this crib was manufactured.

A lady I know has the matching chest that I am getting to use to display my doll collection.

The chest was in an old shop that the lady used to own.

I cleaned it up it is in great shape looks to be from the 1970s.

Can someone let me know an approximate age of this vintage piece of nursery furniture in a Wizard of Oz theme?

hot air balloon and mobile

Thank you to you all for your sweet comments!

To "Anonymous" and "Carla"...we made this hot air balloon ourselves! :) Paper mache, some paint, some string, a basket, and a couple Madame Alexander WOZ dolls [from McDonald's Happy Meals!] :)

And to "Karla"...this was actually a Winnie the Pooh mobile that had stopped playing we removed the Pooh characters and added the Madame Alexander WOZ dolls [from Happy Meals at McDonald's], some ribbon, hot glue, and a cute blue gingham cover for the arm post of the mobile that my mom had sewn!

I was quite pleased at how both projects turned well as the mural and bedding!

We are now using this room for a little girl we are fostering right now....hoping to adopt soon! She loves it just like my other daughter who's almost 5 now! :)
