Snoopy Jack in The Box

I spent some time today at Minnesota Antiques.  Yes, I am in Minnesota.  Big M had a conference in Bloomington, MN today and tomorrow so I went along since it is near IKEA.  I hit a couple of thrift stores before IKEA.  One of them was not open.  As I drove up there was a couple looking in the windows.  We started chatting and they told me about this large antique store in Burnsville.  All I was told was to take 35W, then 13 going East and I would see it.  I decided to be adventurous and try it.   Found no trouble.

It is a huge antique store.  I had a nice, relaxing time walking through the booths.  The best thing I saw was a toy from my childhood.  Sorry that the picture isn’t great.

This 1966 Snoopy Jack in the Box.  I remember playing with it a ton.  What is it about the popping up of a little snoopy that could hold my attention.  My siblings and I played with it so much the snoopy dress ripped.

I thought about buying it just for memory sake, but it was $22.  Just decided to enjoy the memory and move on.

Do you remember this toy?  Did you have a favorite toy?

  1. I am a huge Snoopy fan. I happened to run across one of these very jack-in-the-boxes at a yard sale last year. I scooped him right up. While I didn’t have one when younger, I enjoy it now!
