Hello hello. I had to ask the veggiboard family if any of you collect PEZ dispensers? I started collecting them in middle school, and found myself happy to find out a couples years into middle school, when I turned vegan, that my PEZ friends were vegan-friendly. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> I would not consider myself to be an devote PEZ collector since it's been years since my true PEZ collecting craze. These days I tend to just get ones I spot at different stores that I do not have on my shelf yet. However, I HAVE ACCUMULATED OVER 200, which definitely qualifies me as a collector and solidifies my nerdiness. And I'm proud of all of their little funny faces, stick bodies, and two little flat feet. I moved into my first ever apartment this year and took them all out of their storage and placed them proudly on shelves on my wall. So I will ask again, are their any more of you secret PEZ lovers out there? If they are stashed away somewhere, whether you have one or dozens, I say, "take them our of their shameful prison of cardboard, and place them proudly on your shelf or stashed in your pocket or purse to share with the world."<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smitten.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":smitten:">

Not me, but I have a slightly OT question.<br><br><br><br>
Are all PEZ dispenser collectors Harry Anderson fans?

<span style="color:#008000;">I am a PEZ semi-collector. I have probably 30-40 dispensers. Not really any of them are valuable, but I do have all of the Star Wars ones. I used to keep them on a shelf in my old apartment in the kitchen, but I got really tired of having to pick them all up off of the floor and replace them on the shelf whenever one of my cats would get curious and give one of them a bat with its paw.<br><br>
I haven't bought a dispenser in years, but I always keep an eye out for a cool one. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br>
And I'm not a Harry Anderson fan, for the record.</span>

Nigel, I am no fan of Harry Anderson, and I'm wondering why you asked that? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br>
~Brandon, I have the stars wars collection too, and it is definitely one of my favorites. I had a similar problem with my cats all growing up too, I think that's partly why I had my PEZ all stashed away in boxes for a while. I still have cats in my new apartment, but I keep the PEZ on high shelves where the cats can't get to them, and it's worked well so far.

I knew a PEZ collector once, she baby sat my little girl for an evening.<br><br>
Our friendship ended that evening when my little 3 year old found her PEZ's and ate many a candy

<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/thumbsup.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":up:"> I'm a PEZ collector! I have well over 1000 of them and a room in my home just for the displays. Yup!<br><br><br><br>
I even run a charity org that uses dispensers to raise awareness for different causes. Cancer, Epidermolysis Bullosa and Animal Welfare are the 3 we're working on right now.<br><br><br><br>
We have different PEZ dispensers traveling the world. Everyone who participates writes in a journal and takes photos of the dispenser in their home, city or whatever and then sends it to the next person on the list.<br><br><br><br>
You can check out the website link in my profile since I'm new here and don't have enough posts to link it in this thread yet.<br><br><br><br>
It's called the TPD Project. TPD stands for Traveling PEZ Dispenser!<br><br><br><br>

to PEZ D. SPENCER, Well over 1000! Wow! I pass down my crown because you certainly are the king or nerds in this thread. I think TPD project is awesome, and I'm warmed to hear that our little PEZ friends are using their fame for a good cause.
