The Liverpool Department Store mascot, Bolo Bear has arrived and he is super cute! Liverpool is a mid to high end department store chain with stores located throughout Mexico.  Liverpool Department Stores had Pez produce a dispenser to look like their mascot and, according to the information we have received, there were 25,000 of these produced. This cute Bolo Bear exclusive promotional Pez is now available loose in the Pez Collectors Store!

The Limited Edition Canadian Fire and Ice National Hockey League goalie mask dispensers have arrived and these have really great graphics printed on the helmets.  These NHL Hockey Pez were produced for Canadian distribution only, but we have them available loose in the Pez Collectors Store!

Pez Soft Shooter dispensers are a very different kind of PEZ! The candy is a bit harder or drier than the typical gummy candy, and the fruity flavor of the candy is good. Austria was a test market for these dispensers, so distribution was not wide spread across Europe as most European releases. We have a limited quantity of sets available now!

We have been able to restock on complete sets of the Pez Smart vitamin dispensers and these are a great way to honor graduates. The flip top head is perfect for hiding a little note, making these dispensers more interactive than traditional Pez dispensers! These were also market tested in Austria, and we have heard that they will not be continued. We were told that they did not sell well to the general consumers as the dispenser and vitamin tablets were too costly for most folks who are not collectors. I am not sure if this is true or not, but we wanted to be sure we had some stock in case PEZ International dropped this product from their line!

The Pez Collectors Store has the Lord of the Rings Pez Gift Sets, and they have been extremely popular! This set includes Bilbo Baggins and is limited to 250000 sets.

A Walmart Exclusive Lord of the Rings Pez Gift Set has been released that does not include Bilbo, but does include the Eye of Sauron. This exclusive set is limited to 150000 and we had a hard time locating them as only some of the Walmart stores received shipments, but they are now available in the Pez Collectors Store.

Valentines Pez are coming in December and we hope to get new dispensers rather than last years leftovers. The new dispensers were originally supposed to be released only in tubes, but apparently there was not enough interest in the more expensive tubes, so that idea was cancelled by PEZ Co. The new Valentine Hearts and two new teddy bear Pez will have different colors including a new lavender colored heart and pastel teddy bears! These look really cute!

PEZ Co has officially released information about the tentative shipping dates for the 2012 USA Pez releases. It looks like there will be plenty of new Pez on their way!

Now, that is quite a lineup! So far, there has not been any mention of new Major League Baseballs, new College Footballs or any new exclusive promotional Pez trucks, but we are going to guess that some will be coming out and we will do our best to scramble around to find them and have them available for our customers!

Wishing all of our customers a very Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Pezzing!
