Like all children of the 70’s, I have fond memories of Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots and that Evil Knievel motorcycle that never ever jumped the ramp like it did on the commercial. I also pine for my old Snoopy Sno-Cone maker, which pretty much guaranteed that any hot day could become a block party with all the neighborhood kids.
As it turns out, that very Snoopy
Sno Cone machine is still alive, kicking, and less than $20 at Back
to Basics Toys— a store all of us nostalgic for our old playthings
[edited to add :they’re now available at our affiliate Amazon.com for $23.99]
There’s something refreshing about the fact that same old hand crank
that shaves the ice cubes hasn’t been replaced with anything more
high-tech. I just wish it came with more of those little paper cups; why
do kids love those so much anyway?
The package comes with one packet of grape Fla-vor-aid, but you’ll be
glad when it runs out. Add your own lemonade or fruit juice, or do as my
dad used to do and add raspberry syrup. Yum. –Liz
