The Original Snoopy Sno-Cone Machine

When I was a kid, every Sears catalog in my Grandma Veva’s house had the Snoopy Sno-Cone Machine circled as a desirable Christmas gift. I never got one. And now, NOW, somebody is selling them? I can buy one for my very own? My inner 8-year-old is cheering. (Link courtesy of Gael, who rightly describes it as “the toy we all wanted, but never got.”)

  1. Very cool! Take photos if you get one.

    We just went to Professor Plum’s at crows nest and got Adrian a Drinking Bird which he has wanted for ages. AND astronaut ice cream and ice cream sandwiches! Fun!

  2. I had a sno-cone machine that didn’t have Snoopy on it but worked the same way as that. It did make pretty cool sno-cones!

  3. ok – I posted that, then I looked up. The box for said sno-cone maker was on the bookshelf near me… and it has all the pieces inside. Looks like it would still work too!

  4. I totally had that sno-cone maker growing up!! I never really how privileged my childhood was… It’s definitely more fun to own than to use unless you can get someone else to work it for you. I just remember my arm killing me from pressing down on Snoopy to get the ice to grind… good times.

  5. All I remember is how awkward it was to use that little snow shovel scoop. I don’t think we used it much.

  6. Stop messing about? Sno-Cones?

    You’re forgetting the reason why Prometheus brought the secret of ice down from the Gods:
