Spring Loaded: A Message from the Editor (back to index)
Hello and Happy Holidays from Pezhead Monthly.
hustle and bustle of the holiday season is in full swing, I
wanted to take a moment to recognize the simple wonder that is
Pez. It's been a busy year for me overall, but it's always
nice to find new Pez in stores (and there have been plenty
this year, for sure) and to come home to a nice Pez display.
The new Christmas Pez dispensers this year are great. I am sure you have seen them if you have been in any national store like Walmart, Target, Toys R Us, etc. Note, however, that the new Penguin dispenser is only available in the special holiday tubes, and the crystal version of the new Snowman is only available at Walmart (usually in the holiday candy aisle, not near the checkout lanes where most other Pez can be found). Here is a picture of the new Christmas Pez.
In this issue of Pezhead Monthly, I provide a high-level recap of my year in Pez scores and a picture of my current main display. There's also a Pezzified version of the Christmas classic (?) "Ernest Saves Christmas" and a definitive statement on what this publication views as the best "Elf on a Shelf" ever. Lastly, I give special attention to Pezhead Monthly's Christmas page, which includes lots of Pez-related holiday frivolity from the archives.
I realize that new Pezhead Monthly content has been slim this year overall. Most recently, I had hoped to present another Pez Poetry Slam. The tentative plan will be for it to be in an issue sometime early next year. I hope to be more proficient with new content next year, but at this point I can't say for sure how much. Fortunately, there is plenty of material in the Pezhead Monthly archives for you to read through in the meantime. You can click on the "Archive" link at the bottom of this page to see it all.
always for reading Pezhead
Monthly. Have a happy and save holiday season. Enjoy
your family, friends, pets, and Pez. They are truly precious.
Take care and see you next year!
2013: A Year In The Life of a Pezhead (back to index)It's been another great, Pez-packed year for me. I added about 100 new dispensers to my collection, along with some other unique items like a Pez wallet, magnets, and lots of factory errors. My current dispenser count stands at about 1350. While I won't run down all of the new Pez scores I got this year, or the adventures that accompanied some of them, I do want to point out some highlights:
Here is a picture of the main part of my current Pez display (you can click on it for a larger view)
picture does not include the wall
of many of my cards, my curio
cabinet in the front room, my Batman shelf (shown here in a
recent formation), or other assorted stuff. But it does
capture most of my loose Pez and collector sets, and is a
pretty good indicator of just how much my collection has
grown over the years. Note also that I added another
full-sized bookcase to help display my collection this year.
This really fills up the wall, and space is getting quite
tight! But, I am sure I can fit another hundred or so in
there somewhere, right...?
here's to another great year as a Pezhead. I can't wait to
see what Pez scores are to be had in 2014.
Pezhead Monthly's Christmas Page (back to index)It's the most wonderful time of the year. And to celebrate, Pezhead Monthly presents a page with all of the Christmas goodies from this and previous issues. This page contains many Pez poems, interviews, song parodies, images, and more.
So pour yourself some egg nog, deck the halls, throw a yule log on the fire, and check out the Pezhead Monthly Christmas page right here.

Enjoy Pez, but please do so responsibly.
