The South Branch is decorated in the theme from the Wizard of Oz. Dorothy's house accentuates the entrance to the children's area at the South Branch. You'll see that the house has crushed the Wicked Witch of the East and her silver slippers are sticking out the side. The book The Wizard of Oz featured silver slippers. It wasn't until the movie was made that the shoes were made from rubies.
