Toyland News: Pez Convention

   Pezheads have been asking for another edition of Shawn Peterson’s book, the Collector’s Guide to PEZ, and they won’t have to wait much longer. The third edition will be available early next year. I’ve just wrapped up the manuscript editing duties and turned the materials over to the designers – pretty soon the manuscript and more than 1,000 photos will start to look like a real book. I’ll keep you posted as to its progress.


   It seems that Pez collectors are as organized as they are dedicated to all things Pez. They embraced the opportunities the Internet offered faster than many other toy collectors, and even offer several regional Pez conventions throughout the year. The next Pez convention is the 7th Annual “Pez in the Sun” gathering November 1-3, 2007 at the Springmaid Beach Resort in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
