They’re the tiniest candy, and they take hand eye coordination, and fine motor skills to enjoy; therefore, they take him a long time, and some good concentration, in order to eat just a few little treats. I liked them too, […]

It’s a Pez Perfect Post { Twin Cities Candy Shop }

Badtz Maru Pez Dispenser
