Childhood Dream Come True: PEZ Dispensers Personalized with Your Face

by Hazel Chua

I used to have the largest collection of PEZ dispensers among my friends – that is, before our dog discovered my stash and chewed them all to unrecognizable bits. While I mourned the loss of my collection, I was sick with relief that our dog didn’t choke on the tiny plastic parts.

If you have a long and rich history with PEZ like I do, then no doubt you’ll find the idea of having a PEZ dispenser featuring your face a fun one.

3D Pez FaceBefore anything else, yes, it is possible, and yes, it’s been done (fairly recently) before. Hot Pop Factory had a client who wanted to give their employees a customized holiday gift in the form of – you guessed it – PEZ dispensers with their faces on them.

So how’d they do it? Hot Pop Factory co-founders and designers Matt Compeau and Bi-Ying Miao used an Xbox Kinect motion-sensor to scan the head of each recipient of the gift and then used a 3D printer to print out the PEZ dispenser replica heads.

Now that’s what I call a truly personalized present. PEZ needs to start offering this as a service on their website immediately.
