I Sense a Disturbance in the Toy Room

A diamond in the rough for the Batcave Toy Room, a vintage Snoopy Sno-Cone Machine
Not really a disturbance, but something more like an oddity.

I guess not really an oddity either, but something you don't see everyday in my collection of toys. A vintage toy yes, but not the standard Star Wars, World Greatest Super Heroes, Batman or Super Powers Collection you normally would see.

This Snoopy Sno-Cone Machine is actually my super cool, yet non geek wife's. I bought it for her for Christmas 2012 as she never had one, but always wanted one.

My In-Laws would not buy her one as a child. So, I thought I would fulfill her childhood wish and make it a reality. I just hate to hear when a person missed out on a toy the wanted as a child.

Anyway it is stored in the Batcave Toy Room, but darn it, I just don't know where to display it.

Hey, it's day 13 of the 31 Days to a Better Toy Room Challenge. The half way point is only a couple days way. How's everyone else's progress coming?

  1. Oh man me and my wife were just talking about this the other day. She collects Snoopy toys and I told her one of these days I will have to get her one of these. They brought them back at a few years ago but I didn't grab one then and I have not seen them after that.

    1. Geek minds think alike JBoy. Target used to carry them and that's where I started first to find one, but I bought mine off eBay. You can get a mint one like this from there for usually $20 or less.

  2. Lol a disturbance in the force. I enjoyed that.

  3. I never had one of those but for some reason want one.

    1. They are cool Hobby, but be careful. Next you may want a Easy Bake Oven. ;-)
