December 2023 PCS Newsletter

Today is “Bring Your Pez To Work Day”.  November 30 is the official date. It all started in 2010, when Lou in the advertising department at Providence Journal in Providence, RI brought a dozen pez dispensers to work to give to his co-workers to offset the craziness of that busy time for advertisers. Pez collectors have continued the tradition by participating in Bring Your Pez to Work Day! When November 30th happens to fall on the weekend, it gets pushed to the first Tuesday following Thanksgiving. Be sure to take your favorite dispenser to work if you aren’t lucky enough to always be surrounded by pez!

The European Barbie Pez for 2023 are great new dispensers. This is the third version of Barbie Pez. The first set was released in 2012 in the purse shaped gift tin.

Barbie is also expected to be released in the USA in February, 2024 and we expect them to be mostly the same, though there may be some slight variations in colors or stems.

Star Wars robotic droid R2D2 has been remade with a new pez mold for 2023. The original 2002 mold has been released in the original variation, crystal variation and a red dot variation, but these were all the same mold. The new mold looks similar, but is quite different in details and painting. A few of the most noticeable things are that the legs are much longer, reaching below the top of the stem by about 3 x as far as the original. The base is shaped differently, there is a diamond shape in the center of the bottom of the body that didn't exist on the original version, the lower body is has only two lines painted on the front top of the body and none of the lower body has detail painted or outlined in the new version. These are in stock now in the Pez Collectors Store!

The 2023 Exclusive Baby Yoda or Grogu has all new greetings printed on the stem! Baby Yoda is celebrating the 2023 holidays with Joy to the Galaxy and Up to Snow Good printed on the red stems. The cards and sayings are different than those from 2022. The way his is buried in the white collar, it almost looks like Grogu is in a Christmas stocking! We also have a few of the 2022 Galaxy Greetings and Merry Force Be With You printed stem Grogu pez pairs available.

A new Exclusive Crystal Polar Bear Pez has been released in Europe and the USA on a limited-edition card. This is the newer Christmas bear with his ears in front of the edge of the stocking cap. He looks like he is made of clear ice! The European version comes with Sugar Cookie and Mandarin flavored pez candies! The USA card is quite similar, but has PEZ in a red banner, the Made in the USA symbol on the top (referring to the candy) and it comes with standard pez candy flavors, and it has the Pez Candy Brick Mascot shown on the card. The crystal Polar Bear dispensers will likely be identical. We have a few of these on their way to us from Europe and will add them to our inventory as soon as possible.

January 15, 2024, is the first expected release date for the Popcorn Treats pez. This will be flowed into the Pez Treats assortments, so it will be harder to find as retailers exhaust their existing supplies and reorder and Pez Co. exhausts their existing inventory of already packaged treats that don’t include the Popcorn. We will have these in stock as soon as we are able to get them.
