    Did you double check your facts above? (I am laughing!) I can’t believe that Pez dispensers and candy have been around since 1948. They have been made many years before I was ever born. Somehow, I was thinking the 1960’s for the Pez products and the Frisbees too. Thanks for sharing. I think we all learned something!

    Cannot believe Frisbees have been around that long.
