Pez Candy has been quite busy with new releases. Planned and scheduled regular releases as well as limited-edition exclusive pez are abundant!  The ombre Togetherness Bear may have been a nod to June Pride month as it was released on May 20. It sold out and as a limited edition, it will not be remade by Pez. It was also released in Europe and comes on a different Rainbow card. We have both versions available now.

On June 3, the limited-edition exclusive Father’s Day Panda pez was released in the USA. This pez is the same as the European Father’s Day Panda pez which came at the same time as the European Mother’s Day Panda pez. The European Mother’s Day and Father’s Day Panda cards say Happy Mother’s Day and Happy Father’s Day, respectively, while the USA cards do not have the greetings. We now have these in stock in the Pez Collectors Store.

On June 10, the limited edition exclusive American Flag with fireworks in the background on a clear crystal ball mold with a red stem was released for Flag Day (June 14) in the USA.

The blue stem American Flag pez was actually released as part of the PAMP Suisse 4th of July Pez Set with 30g of silver formed as pez candy bricks! The 4th of July set is a much more limited release for PAMP Suisse with only 2500 produced worldwide. We have a few of these in stock now in the Pez Collectors Store.

On June 24, pez released another limited-edition exclusive Candy Brick Mascot in an ombre fade Red, White and Blue. It comes on an identical patriotic themed card as the American Flag with red stem pez. This Red White and Blue Mascot is in celebration of the 4th of July. Pez is certainly celebrating all of the holidays and is emphasizing the limited edition exclusive pez!

Despicable Me 4 Mega Minion pez and twin packs arrived in the Pez Collectors Store. The Mega Minion pez Tim and Mel are featured in the twin pack with Despicable Me 4 graphics. Unfortunately, our order arrived in very poor condition so we have only a few of the twin packs available at this time. We will have more in stock soon if you miss out on getting them now. Meanwhile, we have plenty of the Despicable Me 4 pez sets in stock!

Mickey and Minnie Pez Clips arrived in the Pez Collectors Store. The mini stems have a molded loop with a jump ring that attaches the stem to a clip, so the dispensers can be connected to a belt loop, a purse strap, a backpack or anywhere you choose! Mickey and Minnie are the newer molds and are cute as can be!

The 2024 Paris Olympics will begin July 26 and the 2024 Paris Paralympics will begin August 28. We now have a few of the Paralympic pez dispensers in stock in addition to the Olympic versions. The Phryge hats are the official mascots of Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games. They are two anthropomorphic Phrygian caps that are a symbol of freedom in France, and each has the French Flag on the side by the eye. The white smile Phrygian cap has the Olympic Rings logo and the black smile Phrygian cap comes with the Paralympic Agitos logo. The copyright on the dispenser is Paris, 2024.

Halloween Pez will begin shipping July 1. The new assortment will include the cute green Girl Witch with freckles and the Blue/Gray and Orange Full Body Bat. The bat looks very contented, like he has just had a nice belly rub, using the same mold as the 2019 Gray and Purple Bat. The green Girl Witch uses the same mold as the 2018 Cute Witch! We will have these in stock just as soon as possible.

Don’t expect the limited-edition exclusives to slow down any time soon! A Hawaiian themed summer dispenser is expected to be released in the USA and Europe sometime in mid to late July. Hopefully, it won’t drop while collectors are busy enjoying the Pezamania Pez convention! Another surprise dispenser is expected in August in both the USA and Europe, as well as the Orange Pez Presenter Girl and another yet to be revealed Presenter Girl. Limited edition exclusive Halloween pez and winter holiday pez can also be expected in both the USA and Europe! Clearly, Pez has taken a page from other collectibles and has fully embraced the limited edition, exclusive product promotions to keep the collectors on their toes and excited about the hobby!

Pez convention season is well underway! The Michigan Pez Convention and Maryland Pez Gathering are in the history books and were both fantastic events enjoyed by all attendees! We attended the Michigan Pez Convention and it was a blast. It is always wonderful to connect with fellow collectors, catch up and find out what is going on in their lives and share good times, not to mention buying, selling and trading pez, playing games, supporting the charities and all the other awesome events we expect at pez conventions! We are very sorry to report that apparently the PIG Hi5 was cancelled without notice. This is quite unfortunate for our hobby and is not what we would expect from a convention host. Hopefully those who registered as attendees and absentees will receive their packets in the mail. According to the website, things should have been mailed by June 26.

Next up is Pezamania XXXIII, coming quickly July 17 – 20 in Independence, Ohio, a suburb of Cleveland. We are really excited about this convention and can assure you without a doubt that it will take place and be fantastic! The theme this year is the PezOlympics and I know that Morgan and Landon will carry the torch across and way over the finish line in the planning for this huge convention. We can’t wait to see you at Pezamania. Find us in room 115!  Visit www.pezamania.com for all the details!

September 12 – 14 is the 11th Pez on the River convention in Winona, MN. Sandy and Cheryl offer down home hospitality and a very laid back, relaxing but fun filled convention. It is the place to be to enjoy some quality time with fellow pez collectors and we can’t wait to see you there! The theme for the dress your pez costume contest this year is "There's no place like Winona" and this should get some really fun entries!
