The Presidents Volume 2 and 3 arrived and have been selling quickly! They look good. The first series suggested that perhaps the stem color would simply alternate, but beginning with Volume 2 and 3, I believe that the color of the stem represents the party they were affiliated with, using Red for Republican or Whig and Blue for the Democrats.

The NHL Stanley Cup Pez arrived from Canada. The stems are really nice – I believe it is the first time that Pez Co has printed multi-color logos on a stem, so even if the Stanley Cup starts looking kind of boring, the stems on these are top notch!

The NICI pez are coming soon! The Jolly Mah sheep are from a community where all the sheep are friendly, nice and cute. These pez are a wonderful way to express your thoughts kindly! They come on cards with a sticky note gift card and include 8 different sayings, among three different sheep. Lucy is the grey sheep with pink pompoms on a maroon stem saying “So What!” and “Keep Smiling!”, Rosa is the white sheep with pink flower on the pink stem saying “Friends Forever!”, “Happy Birthday!” or “Thank You!” and Bob is the laid back brown sheep with the colorful cap on a green stem that says “Don’t worry!”, “Take it easy!”, or “Have a break!”. These are shipping to us now and should arrive within 3 weeks.

We have all of the Radz and Bytz released to the public as well as some prototype dispensers!

Radz and Bytz with accessories

Prototype Radz Bytz Easter Bunny - Raz, Flop & Blu MOC are the smaller size dispensers and these come with candies that are the wrong size for the dispenser, so they don’t work right, but these were early prototype versions.

European pez candy comes with no added coloring, so while the tablets are all white, they are packed with strong flavors! If you enjoy the candies – try a pound of lemon and orange pez from Europe!

With all the new pez that have been released, displaying them all is the next concern! Even if you don’t have a room that you can dedicate as a pez room, you can make the hallway or any open wall space a pez display, from floor to ceiling! We have been working on new display cases. You may remember that back in 2006 we made wooden pez wall display cases. We have improved on that design and will have new wall displays coming soon. The displays come with six adjustable shelves that have a lip on each shelf for the feet to slide under. This prevents the pez from the dreaded domino effect. The pez can be slid freely from side to side for ease of arrangement and rearrangement. The shelves are adjustable, so you can display 6 rows of standard size pez in a single depth so the stems are all visible, or you can add additional shelves to display mini pez or truck pez. Each display case can accommodate up to 17 shelves when spaced to fit truck pez.

Customizable Pez Wall Display

The cases can be purchased with or without a cover door and doors can be purchased separately and added at a later date. Extra shelves may be ordered as needed. The white case backing is constructed as a single sturdy molded plastic case and the doors and shelves are a clear plastic so you can see the entire pez. Uncovered, the vertical nature of the case helps prevent dust from settling on your pez, but to truly protect them from dust or other airborne objects, or from grabby hands or teething animals, use a cover door for maximum protection. The case is approximately 36 x 24” and 3” deep with cover and holds approximately 110 - 120 standard size pez.

Check these out and be sure to add them to your wish list! They will be available in late January, just in time for the long cold winter and all the new 2013 pez!

In January we will see the new Finding Nemo Pez set. This set will feature Dori as well as Bruce and Nemo! It doesn’t look like Bruce the Shark or Nemo will change, but who knows? Dori will be a welcome addition!

Also scheduled for release in January is Princess Merida from the Disney movie Brave.  Since this dispenser will be added to the existing mix and since Pez Co will ship the oldest inventory first, it could be a while before we see these available.

Europe will have some awesome new pez in 2013! Moshi Monsters are coming featuring  Katsuma, Furi and Poppet. Moshi monsters is an online world of adoptable pet monsters that need to be fed and cared for, similar to the Tamagotchi. The pez dispensers require no care, but they are sure cute!

In April, a Super Mario pez set will be released. These are the Super Mario mini pez, and maybe the new Super Mario will look something like them.  A new set of Warner Bros. Looney Tunes is also scheduled for release.

There will be new Smurf Click and Play sets with 4 different Smurfs – I am guessing  Papa Smurf, a Smurf, a Smurfette and maybe a Brainy Smurf or even Gargamel! These will be really popular and as soon as we find an image, we will let you know more! These are supposed to be coming in May.

Smurfs that could be pez click and play???

Angry Birds pez are scheduled for release, sometime in the 4th Quarter. Wow! Really? Yep, Angry Birds Pez! Not these fantasy ones, but real ones! Awesomeness!
