Snoopy Sno-cone Machine, or Why I am the Best Father Ever.



I saw this in the Border's at the mall some weeks back. It instantly brought back a veritable torrent of childhood memories and I was duty bound to purchase it for my own lovely spawn. Who doesn't have fond memories of their mum and dad turning ice cube tray ice cubes into a frozen delight? Anyhow, I had forgotten about the shovel! I think this got lost early on when I was a kid because I remember my parents using a spoon.



I think my Snoopy Sno-cone Machine got thrown out when my parents ran out of flavor packets. I don't think Toroni syrups and the like were as easily available a quarter century ago. My munchkin will enjoy this for years to come if it holds out. As with most modern toys, this version seems rickety and cheaper then the one I had. It is still a wonderful find.

  4. My mom bought mine at a garage sale. There were no flavor thingies left, so I had to use orange juice. Yuck.

  5. My parents had to throw mine away when I thought I could use it to make orange juice and got a wedge of orange hopelessly stuck inside it. A sad day.
