Snoopy Sno-Cone Machine is back!

Filed under: Big Kids, Activities: Babies

Yesterday was a good day. We got news that Ellie got into the school we wanted, the dog's heart-worm check came back negative, I finally reached the bottom of my laundry pile and I found out the original Snoopy Sno-Cone Machine is back!

Compared to a good education and healthy pets, Snoopy Sno-Cone Machines might seem rather unimportant, but it takes me back to simple childhood pleasures and makes me feel all happy inside. For the uninitiated, the Snoopy Sno-Cone Machine is basically a hand-cranked ice-shaver. You put ice cubes in at the top, push down on Snoopy's head while turning a crank and out comes bits of ice. After about an hour of cranking, you will have a small cup of ice shavings over which you pour liberal amounts of flavored syrup made from Kool-Aid.

For some reason, the Snoopy Sno-Cone Machine disappeared from the market about ten years ago, but now it's back. And Ellie is getting one for her birthday next month, whether she wants it or not!
