The Nick Jr. assortment will add Thomas the Train from Thomas and Friends and Nahal from Shimmer and Shine in February.

We have restocked a few of the PAMP Suisse Snowman with Silver Pez Candies sets. This was a limited production with only 3000 made which sold out very quickly. This set was so popular that the program is being continued with an Easter version featuring the Chick sitting on his rump pez dispenser and candy bricks featuring the Chick, also a limited edition with only 3000 produced. We are told that issue with the silver candies coming loose in the boxed sets is being resolved and we expect to receive these in March.
