Frosty Sno-Man Sno-Cone MachineSam's Toybox Homepage
None of my toys are for sale

Frosty the Sno-Man Sno-Cone maker is a toy that if you actually used it on a regular basis would give you the forearms of Popeye. Originally produced in then 1960s, this particular version of the toy is a re-issue from 1974, item 5230. Included everything you needed to open your own sno-cone business including a hat and apron. The 1960s version came with a pipe in his mouth which must have become politically incorrect (or just harder to manufacture) by the 1970s. Below Frosty are the other sno-cone makers in my collection. The SpongeBob version is still available through Amazon.com as of this writing.

Other toys in my collection where you create something edible: Chocolate Factory from Emenee, Chuck E. Cheese Pizza Factory by Wham-O, Kandy Kitchen by Transogram, Incredible Edibles by Mattel, Mr. Peanut Peanut Butter Maker by Broadway Toys, Queasybake Cookerator by Hasbro.

Kenner's feeble attempt at a sno-cone machine, the Ice Bird allowed you to freeze a block of ice that you then ran the bird across to shave. Seems just a bit more dangerous than the Frosty machine above. Item number 4660 dated 1976 (though it appears much older).

A couple of other sno-cone makers I've picked up through the years. The Peanuts one is from Playskool while the Kool-Aid one is from Lanard Toys. Both are from 1985. The instructions for the Snoopy toy are online compliments of Hasbro (which is Ideal, Milton Bradley, Parker Brothers, and Playskool).

The SpongeBob version is dual purpose and be used to make "soft serve" out of hard packed ice cream as well as sno-cones. Made by Little Kids, Inc. there is no item number or date but I got this one in January, 2007. It was still available through Amazon.com at that time.
