Dr. Nikidik's Celebrated Wishing Pills are magical pills created by Dr. Nikidik.
Three of these pills were found within the false bottom of a pepperbox containing the Powder of Life. The instructions for the Wishing Pills read:
- Directions for use: Swallow one pill; count seventeen by twos; then make a wish.-The wish will immediately be granted.
- CAUTION: Keep in a Dry and Dark Place.
After the Scarecrow was deposed as King of Oz, he and his companions set out to find Glinda's palace aboard the flying Gump. They got lost during the night and the Gump was damaged, but the Wogglebug used one of the Wishing Pills and set them on their way again. (The Marvelous Land of Oz)
The Wogglebug again used a wishing pill on a later adventure to the United States. After the Tin Woodman recklessly used magic to give a little boy the car that he wanted, not realizing how dangerous cars can be, the Wogglebug used a Wishing Pill to wish the boy back home. (From The Visitors of Oz (1960), from the chapter (story) 'How the Tin Woodman granted Timothy's wish', by Dick Martin (illustrations) and Jean Kellogg re-written stories based upon Queer Visitors from the Marvelous Land of Oz)
