We are very excited to welcome Harry Potter to the line of PEZ Collector Sets. Harry Potter has been a recurring request from fans, young and old, for quite some time … We know this set will be on top of their holiday wish lists!
The set consists of six dispensers featuring the movie likenesses of some of the series’ most integral characters: Ron, Hermione, Harry, Dumbledore, Hagrid, and Voldemort. And what good would the dispensers be without some candy? PEZ made sure to include two six-packs of the popular rectangular sweets. The magical dispensers are now en route to US retailers with an edition size of 100,000—fans will definitely want to jump on this in time for the holiday season. The set will hit shelves with a suggested retail price of $17.99 USD.
