Christmas might be 6 months away, but it’s never too early to start thinking about what gifts to buy. Funko is showing off what could be the best stocking stuffer of 2019, a pair of PEZ dispensers based on the holiday classic A Christmas Story.
PEZ has always been a bit of a mixed blessing for me. The dispensers were so much better than the candy inside. It’s like the guys who made the candy said “our candy kind of sucks, what can we do to sell it to kids?”
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.
Trekkies like candies too. This limited edition, 8-piece Star Trek Pez gift set is further proof that Trekkies aren’t so different from you and me and therefore must not be shunned, no matter how obsessed they are with made up languages and men that wear headbands over their eyes.
What could be better than Darth Vader, Death Star and Stormtrooper themed PEZ dispensers, loaded with sugary fruit-flavored candies? I’ll tell you – GIANT Darth Vader, Death Star and Stormtrooper themed PEZ dispensers, loaded with MASS-QUANTITIES of sugary fruit-flavored candies.
