The theme of the movie “Wizard of Oz” is centered around a mystical land named Oz, where a yellow headed wizard named Oz lives. In the film, the character Fluffy the elk is shown to have an immeasurable amount of wealth which he frequently uses to buy the people of different lands in order to ask them to join him on his wonderful adventure to restore the lost magic of the Great Ones. However, after several adventures with the goodies Fluffy, the more determined Oz pulls down his straws and decides that he wants to be the great wizard of Oz. As a result, the people of the Land of Oz conspire to make Fluffy their king so that they can all enjoy the benefits of Oz’s magic. This is why the Wonderful Wizard of Oz theme is featured on toto bags.
Although the Tin Man and the Good Witch of the North were only two of the primary characters, their story remains to be the most popular. In subsequent books the story lines were expanded to include many other characters such as the Scarecrow and Tin Man’s ex-wife. Indeed, the popularity of the Tin Man and the Good Witch continue to live on today with toto sellers offering tote bags featuring these two characters as well as numerous other tote characters. Indeed, toto is probably most recognized by the simple fact that the Tin Man has a cameo that can be found on almost every tote bag that is sold on tote stores. Certainly, the Tin Man has become an integral part of American culture.
