Pros: great for novelty, well made, plays Muppet Show theme song
Cons: only good for storing Pez
I've been a Jim Henson Muppet fanatic since I was a toddler, and the harder I tried to get my daughter to gain an interest, the harder she resisted. Two years ago, I came across the Giant Kermit the Frog Pez Dispenser and thought it was so cute that she might like it since she likes Pez dispensers. So, I bought it for her for Christmas that year.
The Giant Kermit the Frog Pez Dispenser, I bought off of Amazon.com where it was at a clearance price of $5 and some change. I haven't seen these for sale in any of my local stores, so wouldn't know where else to point someone to get one besides online.
This is shaped like any other Pez dispenser, only it is 12 inches tall. And, instead of holding individual pieces of Pez candy, this one holds whole packs. So, it's more like a "Pez dispenser's Pez candy holder". It even comes with 12 packs of Pez candy. I know we got strawberry, but I think the other flavor that came with it was lemon.
Loading the Pez dispenser is easy. I pull open the head, and then pull the tube up. Then, I slip in all of the packs of Pez, still wrapped. It will hold up to 12, but no more than that. When I want a pack of Pez, I open the head and a pack shoots out. So, it works just like a tiny Pez dispenser does.
This one is way cooler though.
It's made of plastic, and the body of the dispenser is red.and has "Pez" written in large letters on the sides. It will stand on it's on, on the large red "feet" that it has.
Kermit is accurately shaped and green-colored which is always a plus. I have a few Kermit items that look like a poor imitation of him, but this one is pretty nice.
The very best thing about this Pez dispenser? When you open Kermit's head, it plays the theme song from The Muppet Show (just the music, not the words). And, so, it takes a couple of AA batteries, but the great thing is they last for-practically-ever. I haven't changed the batteries in 2 years.
My daughter has lost interest in this toy, and so now I suppose it is mine. I'm not a Pez fan (I find them disgusting, actually), but I am a fan of this dispenser. And, I am a fan at how well made it is and of it's cuteness. It would make a great novelty gift for the Kermit the Frog lover in your life. I would definitely recommend it.
