The crystal Devilish Emoji is finally beginning to appear! This crystal emoji was supposed to be included in the new assortment along with Chillin’ and Cheesing, but instead, the assortment was released with a solid, opaque red colored Devilish head. There was miscommunication and the factory produced the solid red dispenser, so Pez Co. released it while waiting for the crystal heads to be produced. It is unlikely that Pez will stop releasing the solid one until they run out, though they may not have more manufactured for future releases. It remains to be seen which will eventually be more easily available. For now, be watching for the crystal Devilish to begin appearing. We will have these available as soon as possible.

The World’s Smallest Pez – a mini Peter Pez and a mini Pez Pal boy will be available from the Pez Collectors Store in mid to late April. These cute new mini pez come with a pack of Pez Candy. It is actually somewhat unclear as to what makes them “the World’s Smallest” other than that is the brand name of the company that is marketing these dispensers. We have certainly seen plenty of other pez on mini stems and even smaller mini x mini stems from Bandai, all of which are fully functioning pez dispensers. The mini Pez Pal boy looks just like the Visitors Center Pez Pal Boy and Peter Pez is in classic but diminutive stature. Even if the claim of “World’s Smallest” wouldn’t hold up, these are still awesome! We are told they are currently in a container, shipping to the USA and should arrive at the dock by April 10 – 15, so we expect to receive our order within a week or so later.

Nintendo has been added to the lineup for USA releases. The assortment will include Mario, Yoshi, Princess Peach and Donkey Kong.

The assortment is scheduled to begin shipping May 1 and we will have them in stock as soon as possible.

Coming soon from Europe is the Globi Pez from Lolipop The Candy Shop in Switzerland. It is scheduled to become available April 1. This adorable blue parrot with yellow beak wears a black beret and he is one of the most popular comic characters in Switzerland.
