The Snoopy Sno-Cone Machine


One of the fun things about being a parent is that you can get toys for your kids that you always wanted when you were a kid, but never had. I wanted for nothing as a child, but the one toy I couldn’t have was the highly desirable Snoopy Sno-Cone Machine. I think my parents had a thing against food-related toys, because my sister never got that Easybake Oven she so desperately wanted.

Anyway, they’re back on the market now, and I got one for my kid for Christmas and it’s awesome, so there.

    I finally got one in college. Mixing margaritas and pouring them over the Snoopy shaved ice was the highlight of a party shortly afterwards.

  2. My sister in law bought that for my kids as a Christmas gift. As a snow cone maker it is horribly inefficient and a sure fire way for kids to lose a finger tip or two. Grinding away one ice cube at a time is excruciating and something that I would not even wish on my most dastardly enemy. I hucked that thing up into the far reaches of a closet once the kids went to bed.
