Mickey Mouse 80 years PEZ


This Mickey PEZ is released in honor of 80th anniversaries of both PEZ and Mickey.
As stated behind the tin box, I got to know Mickey Mouse was born on November 18, 1928 in a film called Steamboat Willie. CUTE!
Inside this edition, there are 3 Mickey PEZ along with a vintage mickey poster.
Limited Edition PEZ of 400,000 (That's a LOT!!!) The number I've got is 232071.
Tin box also shows production date to be 2007 and best before 2011!
Another someting new to me...I didn't know PEZ candies could last that long!
Although I did tried some PEZ candies that were more than 10 years old.
Frankly, it's still got some taste but it's better not to eat them after the expiry.

My past few days...

My house is so mess up with books all over the tables, overflooded shelfs, toys on the floor...
I can't even walked properly in my own room!!!
Only myself to blame as I am too lazy and kept putting off to tidying the place.
Time for some house keeping!!!
Have you ever wonder how our library books are kept in order?
Thousands of books returned and loaned daily.
That is everyday non-ending work!
For those of you who are book lovers & collectors, you probably would agreed that books are HEAVY!!!
For the past few days, I was busy shifting my bookshelfs from a room into the living room.
Then I thought of people whom worked at libraries or book stores.
Didn't expect it to be so much hard work.
Many books are different in heights and have to re-adjust the shelvings.
Sometimes when I filled up a section, I realised there's a runaway somewhere else later!!!
It was packed, unpack, put here, put there...
Glad that I'm finally done today.
That's why I think Librarians are great!
My back hurts now and so were my both legs!!!
Talk about legs, I went for a foot reflexlogy for the 1st time on Wednesday, came back thinking my legs is gonna break.
It was so painful!
First and last time for the foot massage... LOL!!! What a experience.
Heart and Pocket pain. Spend money to torture myself...
I would much prefer to go for Thai body massage.
Which I felt really good after the massage.
On Thursday, I went to the post office to collect my PEZ package.
In the afternoon, the postman came and gave me another PEZ package.
So for this whole week this is the best thing that happened to me!
What a Pezzy Day!

Tomorrow I'll be going to IKEA to purchase some addtional shelfs for my toys.
Hope that they do have the shelfs I want in stock!
That's about all that I was doing for about a week.
For the next few days, it's going to be sorting out the toys collectibles and some old files.
So Tired... Tired...tired......

I am wondering???

Do you think travel, movies, music...etc mix well together?
Should this blog be solely on Travel & places only?
Or would it be better if I add posts like movies or music I like here?
Thinking of doing some writtings about my vinyl records.
I find it might be too messy if I post it in my toy collection main blog

Please do leave me some feedbacks so I can make improvements for this blog!

Fuzzy PEZ

Able to hold PEZ candy inside their stuff body!

Forest Animals PEZ

The PEZ candy include inside is about half the size of the normal PEZ candy.

I got this Counter Display Box from Toys R Us.
Actually they dumped this empty box at a bin!!!
When I saw it, I asked the supervisor if I can have it...
He said Ok and gave it to me.

These PEZ candy are mostly for Singapore market.
Opening up all my PEZ collection has caught me with one problem!
Aha...I am going to grow FAT! So much candy...
For this post, it consists of PEZ on card.
These PEZ are for European, Asian..etc. market.
I'll be posting on PEZ in bags which are from USA in another post.

This PEZ card you see below is generally what at the back of the cards in Singapore.
Older ones are better because for different series they have the different characters printed on the back of the card.
But now, we can only see how a PEZ operates, so sometimes it's difficult to know how many PEZ are in the series!

This set have only 2 ET.
I consider myself quite lucky to have found this unexpectly at a toy store that do not sell PEZ!
They said it belonged to their customer whom left it there to ask them to sell.
