Overview

PEZ Collectibles by Richard Geary

PEZ made it OK to play with your food, and now those imaginative, colorful candy dispensers are sought after by collectors worldwide. After PEZ candy and dispensers were brought to the United States in 1952, more than 250 different types of character heads were made. Licensed cartoon characters, movie and TV personalities, and original designs are divided chronologically into five series, usually indicated by patent dates on the dispensers. In this newly revised and expanded edition, most of the variations of PEZ dispensers are shown in 281 color photographs, as well as the premiums and store displays that helped sell them. The captions identify each item and give the current estimated values.

I thought the book needed bettter organization. The captions were messed up and there could have been more information (such as a detailed history). I've been collecting Pez for six years and the book seemed to be a cheap excuse to sucker Pez collectors into buying it.

This is a disappointing rehash of his previous books. Nothing new here. It needs a major overhaul. It's lacking big time in the new product area. Things that should be in there are not. Incomplete groupings. Confusing sublines.

This book has excellent pictures, which are great references for collectors however in my opinion the estimated prices are awful. The nicer pieces prices are too low and the newer, less valuble pieces are too high. Some of the pictures' captions are mixed up which can be confusing for beginning collectors. Overall, I recommend you purchase this book. If you study the pictures it can help you out a lot in deals and in the end will buy itself.
