About Ruby Slippers

Dorothy's distinctive sequined ruby slippers from "The Wizard of Oz" are so iconic that one of the pairs used in the 1939 movie ended up in the Smithsonian Institution. When Dorothy's house is taken from the farm in Kansas by a twister, it lands on the Wicked Witch of the East and frees the Munchkins. Glinda, the Good Witch of the North, gives Dorothy the dead witch's magical slippers before her sister, the Wicked Witch of the West, can use her flying monkeys to find them. The original slippers are heels, and there were actually six copies. For a great costume or Halloween party, you can choose an exact copy in the form of flats or platforms. Collectors can also buy a Hallmark Christmas ornament that looks just like Dorothy's slippers from this memorable movie. With the vast inventory available on eBay, it is easy to find the perfect pair of ruby slippers for you.
