Snow White PEZ Dispensers - 2000s

In an earlier post, we saw the first Snow White PEZ from 1967. Now we'll look at the updated ones issued in the 2000s. In 2005-2006, new Disney Princess dispensers were released. Then in 2007, a Snow White was added to the collection.

  • 2007 Princess Gift Set. Includes eight characters: Jasmine, Ariel, Cinderella, Mulan, Pocahontas, Aurora, Belle, and Snow White (with blue stem). Each measures approximately 4.5" tall

This blue stem Snow White was also sold individually. In subsequent years, numerous different packaging designs were produced. Some examples:



  • 2010 Limited Edition Gift Set Collector's Series. A stand-alone Snow White set was released. Includes Snow White (with yellow stem), plus the Seven Dwarfs on the new "short stem" body (approx. 3.5" high). Only 250,000 sets were made, each individually numbered with a Gold Seal of Authenticity. The set also came with 12 packages of candy and a free storybook. A round reflective "Magic Mirror" is found on the outside back of the box. Each dwarf has his name printed on the dispenser stem.

The set has become rather infamous for its design faux pas. Specifically, some people have commented on the suggestive location of where the PEZ candy brick is released on the dwarf dispensers. You can find videos on youtube that go into explicit detail on this.


  • 2012 French Dwarfs. European release of Dopey (Simplet), Grumpy (Grincheux), and Happy (Joyeux). Names printed on stems.

  • 2014 Princess Release. In 2013, a new Cinderella was issued in Europe. She was redesigned to look more like her original animated self. Smaller head, more delicate features. In 2014, Ariel, Belle and Snow White followed suit. They were sold in boxes of two: Ariel/Rapunzel and Belle/Snow White. And they also became available in individual packages. Note Snow's red bow is placed to one side.

  1. Okay, I think I like the look of the 2014 Snow White dispenser the best, out of all the ones you have posted. But it is odd that they veered from their traditional "disembodied head" type of dispenser and used the entire bust of the princesses. And it's even weirder that the Dwarfs incorporate their full bodies, minus their legs....ESPECIALLY after you've pointed out the unfortunate location of where the candy pops out! I wonder if the creator of those was secretly getting his or her kicks in coming up with that design!

    1. I wondered that too. Did someone in the Disney design group deliberately create the dwarfs to dispense their candy where they did? If so, he/she was probably surprised and amused when the set actually got the green light from the suits above. It'd be interesting to learn if the designer still works there.
