Snoopy Sno-Cone Machine from Hasbro (1981)

A vintage dealer advertisement from 1981 for the Snoopy Sno-Cone Machine from Hasbro. First released in 1979, the toy was a mashup of Peanuts characters and hand-cranked ice shavings. The machine was shaped like Snoopy’s iconic dog house and included paper cups, a red plastic shovel scoop, syrup bottle, and one packet of unsweetened soft drink mix.

“Just add sugar, water, and ice cubes to make a delicious treat!”
