My PEZ Dispenser Collecton

I've been collecting PEZ dispensers since I was around 13. It started when I was going through a phase where I was obsessed with anything Winnie the Pooh and I bought an Eeyore dispenser. That was the beginning and over the last 13ish years I have collected over 300 dispensers...yup...300...
As you can see, this is not my full collection. These shelves were already in this house when we bought it (perfect!!), so I just put a random selection on there for the time being. It's in an odd spot in the entrance to a toilet (hah), so I had to take the full photo from the side.
Here are a couple of shelves, I currently don't have them in any order and my sets are all over the place. I plan on organising it a bit better soon. 
Most of the dispensers I have were purchases from supermarkets, and places like Kmart, Target or Big W. I have bought several online and I love looking on eBay for new (and old) ones from overseas. 
This guy is one of my vintage dispensers (I only have a couple). He's simply called an Indian whistle, because he has a whistle on the back of his head (duh Megan). He's worth $20-$25 and I love his happy little face.
This is my favourite! A vintage Bambi, from around 1976 I believe. No feet! PEZ started adding feet to their dispensers in the 80s. My Bambi is worth from $45-$60 (hehe I didn't even pay $40 for it!) but there is one even rarer that has WDP printed on the head and can be worth up to $125!
This is my PEZ box which has the rest of my dispensers, they are hidden under all the unopened ones and my giant dispensers (they dispense packages of PEZ instead of single PEZ). You can also see a backwards Belle still on card (what it's called when the dispenser is still packaged), that I bought for some reason! There are HUNDREDS in this box and I really, really, really want proper shelves to display them on.
This is my gold Barky Brown. Oh my gosh, I was so happy to get a Barky Brown! Barky's Australian, and was created by the Animal Welfare League to raise money for animals in need! I am unsure of how much this gold one is worth (there's also silver and there were regular colours released at different times and even ones with crystals heads, meaning transparent plastic tinted different colours). I would really like more Barky's but they can be pricey.
Finally, this is my favourite giant dispenser, The Robot from Lost in Space. He looks super awesome and when you lift the head he talks!

As I just realised when I was typing all this, I am a serious PEZ collector and I wish I had more money to buy some rarer PEZ. I would really like a Thumper to match Bambi! And I think the next one I will buy will be a psychedelic hand.
I will leave you now with a picture of my dream PEZ dispenser
 Made in the 1970s this lil' guy is so so rare and is worth at least $900. Siiiiigh!
To get all of the info about certain dispensers including how much they are worth I highly recommend Warmans PEZ Field Guide 
Have a great day! I hope you enjoyed a peek at this collection :)
