In the market for a royal PEZ dispenser?
The wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton -- set for this Friday, April 29 -- has inspired dozens of trinkets, tchotckeys, and souvenirs of varying usefulness, quality, and taste, from cheesy mugs and ugly t-shirts to horrifying appliances and wasteful cell phones.
Read on for the royal goods you'd be better off passing up -- and the very few that are ever so slightly eco-friendly (like sustainable-wood puzzles and formaldehyde-free nail polish) to satisfy your celebration needs.
Will and Kate PEZ Dispensers
Unfortunately, those excited about candy popping out from Will and Kate's torsos will have to keep looking: This set was a one-off that PEZ auctioned on eBay
, donating the proceeds to the Starlight Children's Foundation
, one of Kate's favorite charities.
The winning bid, from an apparently very devoted royal watcher in Connecticut, sold for more than $13,000. No word on whether or not it came with candy, too.
