We're excited to feature this great collection from Justin Hansen! Check out Justin’s PEZ story:
How long have you been collecting PEZ?
Since High School... a full 22 years! It started out very slowly and exploded this past 2 years.
What was your first PEZ dispenser?
The complete Garfield set. I was amazed that they made a whole set and had to get them ALL!!
How many PEZ are part of your collection?
1,382 and counting. That doesn't include Pez memorabilia, only the dispensers.
What advice would you give to those looking to start collecting?
Start with what you love. Collect the items that best interest you. Then move on from there. Pez has a ton of different items that can relate to you. It's not just candy!
What is your favorite thing about PEZ?
Now that I have kids of my own, the best thing about Pez is the chance to get interested as a family. The thrill of the hunt, looking for that next item, eating the candy, unwrapping a new package... everyone in the family can participate. It brings us closer together.
