He collects......wait for it, wait for it.....PEZ!!!
Yes I did say Pez, don't worry I made that face too when I first heard about this interesting collection. He started
this collection when he was a junior in high school. I asked him tonight why he started his collection and his response was..... it was a cool little toy and it came with candy! Gotta love my hubby ;)
I had no idea just how big PEZ collecting was until I attended a PEZ Convention (yes, I know I am a good wife) in Myrtle Beach! They called themselves Pez Heads and I have never seen so many people obsessed with Pez in my whole life!!!!! And prolly wont.... both Rusty and I agreed that Pez Heads are just a little too weird (even for my pez obsessed husband).
Here is Rusty's collection (which is currently being held in the basement). Yes.... just count the number of containers..... all full of PEZ!!!!!! I must be the best wife in the world because I have actually agreed to allow him to build a pez room in our basement when we finish it. It will include his collection, which is full of anything PEZ!
I can't believe I am sharing this picture.... but this is one of Rusty's proud accomplishments! He made this outfit to look like a pez dispenser... he wore it last Halloween while we handed out candy. However, the kids were not really sure what he was... most of them thought he was a robbot :) Poor Rusty, he tried so hard!!
The whole reason I thought about his whole Pez collection tonight is because he made me stop at Chuck E Cheese tonight to get this little guy...
There is also a Pez muesam in CA and all the Pez candy which is made in the US is made in a factory in Conneticut... who would have known. My husband know feels very proud of himself for teaching you all a little something about PEZ :)
Hope your enjoyed! Feel free to share what you or anyone you know collects, I would love to hear all about it!!
