Coolest Present Ever...

image via here

I just purchased a Snoopy Snow Cone Maker for my nephew, Ben. His 3rd birthday is in a month and I had been contemplating the perfect gift...not something too commercial or predictable, and something that inspires creativity. I think he's going to love it!

I was reading one of my favorite blogs today, Oh Joy! Eats, when this post caught my eye, and it mentioned the Snoopy Snow Cone Maker. I was thrilled to realize that they still made these gems and quickly snatched one up on-line for Ben--at a very reasonable price, I might add. I just love the little snowman and Snoopy flavor-bottles!

My sister and I had one of these toys, and it provided hours of entertainment in the summer when we were little...the excitement and anticipation as the incessant churning of the ice produced little crystals in a bathroom-sized paper cup. And oh, to taste all 2-bites of the fake-fruit-flavored ice gratifying!

Did you have a Snoopy Snow Cone Maker?


  1. I don't. BUT I have a Pampered Chef version of the same thing! :) I actually popped it out the other night and have frozen SoBe waters and churned out my own special snow cones !!! LOVE it! :)

  2. I had one and loved it!! Glad to know they're still around! :)
