Big Surprise from Zamora, Spain PEZ Gathering in the works!

Back in December 2017 we have reported about all the upcoming purple Crystal LOL'ings that PEZ International had made for all the Gathering/Conventions.
Many of our Readers were surprised to hear about a 3rd one for Spain,
at this Moment it was clear and known that
Madrid and Barcelona are on the list.

But who, and where in Spain would be the third one?
It's time to let the cat out of the bag ;)
Aquí viene, especialmente para 

nuestros amigos españoles!
Here it comes, especially for our Spanish friends!

We are very happy to report that 
Roberto Perez Gomez 
will organize a special PEZ Event in May 2019 in Zamora, Spain.
Zamora is a beautiful city in Spain with lots of Romanesque churches, 
and very close to the border to Portugal.
Roberto has great ideas,
and it sounds very exciting and intriguing to us.
Stay tuned,
as soon we have all the details we will be sure 
to share it here with you. ;)

OH YES... The new GRINCH PEZ hit the European stores....

Back in November 2017 we first heard about the PEZ Line up for 2018. 
On the list was The Grinch PEZ assortment. 
Then in May at the Sweets & Snack Expo in Chicago we saw the first images of the assortment and now we are happy to report that the release was released earlier then we have expected.
The new Grinch PEZ assortment with 
The Grinch
Cindy Lou Who
Max the dog
has started to hit the stores in Europe!
The Grinch, Cindy Lou Who, and Max the dog have been showing 
up in stores in Austria. 

Our friends in the USA will still need to wait two more weeks for the release.
While the European assortment will only have the Grinch, Cindy Lou Who and Max the dog, our USA PEZ friends will have a nice gift tin
plus a 4th dispenser Fred the Reindeer.

Thank you Momo for the wonderful Pictures and the super cool Video ;)

EXCLUSIVE FIRST LOOK: PEZ Japan crystal purple LOL'ing...

We have previously reported about the turbulence around the 
Japan PEZ gathering in the past. 
There are different rumors and stories circulating around, 
and we do not want to comment or to share any of them.

The Facts:
We have heard that many of our Japanese PEZ Collector friends 
have been frustrated about the Japanese PEZ gathering.
No one got any information where or when the next 
Japanese Gathering would be.
Another conflict was, 
PEZ International made the dispenser for the Japanese gathering, 
and it looks like the host no longer wanted the dispensers!
It looked very bad for all of us, 
until now it was not clear what would happen, 
and if the Japanese convention dispenser would 
ever come out to our collector hands.

We are so happy to report about the 
And the most important, 

Two big Collectors from Japan, 
Toshihiro Sumi, a long time PEZ Collector, with an amazing Collection, 
and his lovely assistant our dear 
sweet sugar sugar ;) SHIHO 
have decided to start something new, 
and to bring the PEZ gathering fun back to Japan!
They are both working really hard to make the 
1st PEZ community club come-together a success.
The event is now set to happen 
November 4th 2018 in Tokyo, Japan! 

So finally here it is, and we are so excited to share with you the 
first pictures of the official JAPAN PEZ to mark the special occasion. 
The purple crystal LOL'ing emoji is the official 
mascot for most of the gatherings for 2018 and 2019.

Important note:
The website that is printed on the stem is incorrect because 
the order for the PEZ was made long before the original scheduled event. 
The new hosts had to start from scratch with the 
planning and organization for the for the 
PEZ community club come-together.  
Instead of losing the PEZ that were made 
they will be used for the new event.

If you would like to know more about the gathering, 
please join the FB group which can be found here:
1st Tokyo PEZ Club Community FB-page

Stay tuned PEZ PALZ :) 
We will have a give away soon coming, 
and you will have the chance to win a Japan crystal LOL'ing!

Sorry no Absentee package availaible for now!

Thank you Toshihiro Sumi & Shiho for the pictures <3

This will be the third movie in the franchise and is a continuation

Ugly Dolls PEZ with OX, MOXY + UGLY DOG for 2019...

This year at the Sweets & Snacks Expo, PEZ introduced us 
for the first time the new 
UglyDolls PEZ, 
at that time it was only the mockups but at least we could guess which direction they would go. The UglyDolls first hit in 2001, the brainchild of David Horvath and Sun-Min Kim. When David shared the first pictures on Instagram of the UglyDolls we were so excited to see the final product. We will still have to wait until May 2019, but today we can share a first look at the final version. David also shared a lovely story on Instagram about the UglyDolls, it is so nice to share the joy of PEZ with David. 2019 will be the year of UglyDolls. A movie will hit the theaters, toys and Merchandise will also be sold. For now, here are the new Ugly Dolls with.... which are planned for May 2019 release.
And now let's share the love for PEZ <3

Concept and Mockups only!

From David's Instagram:

davidzhorvath@uglydolls @pezcandyusa are real. Much thanks to @whitespaceentertainment we are once again so fortunate to have this impact on what is for me one of the most exciting elements of pop culture. My list of life goals as a child was pretty short but very specific. Our own PEZ dispenser was super high on that list.  Remember the READ Yoda poster? Always wanted to be a read poster since the big READ showed up in return of the Jedi lettering back in the 80s.... so when we were invited to be the read poster and bookmark, it was mega life-changing to be able to check off one of those very few boxes on our very short list. Well there’s nothing wrong with growing a toy company for the specific purpose of selling it off to the big investment firms, or licensing everything under the sun in the great pop culture chase, which is also quite a feat and admirable, but for Sun-min and I both it was always the little cultural staples which brought people joy over the very long term which served as the driving force behind our expression of creativity. The little things which you can count on being there, especially if you’re going through harder times, I don’t even know if this is the case for anybody else out there but I always found great comfort in those rare few pop culture markers of our time still being there. As a teen I had the PEZ Eyeball hand, from some of the older originals which I would scoop up at the antique mart all the way to the more modern variations, the original stands before they started adding feet, almost all of the variations of PEZ Mickey Mouse, Batman, and really loved hunting down the old-school versions and tough to find pieces at the various antique marts on the East Coast and in Los Angeles right there by what is now known as the Grove across from the farmers market... really a huge thank you to all of our fans who kept us going for these nearly 2 decades, we really hope you enjoy these and everything else our amazing team is working so hard on! Huge props to @whitespaceentertainment for putting this together and for getting it from the get go! ❤️ #pez #uglydolls #uglydoll
