Charlie Brown & Snoopy Waffle Maker

Peanuts Snoopy & Charlie Brown Character Waffle Maker

Peanuts characters are breaking out of their two-dimensional world! No, I am not talking about the fact that the upcoming CGI Peanuts movie is going to give the Snoopy and the gang depth perception. This is a kitchen blog, so I’m talking about the Peanuts Snoopy & Charlie Brown Character Waffle Maker. Specifically, big, fluffy waffles made to look like Charlie Brown, Snoopy and Snoopy’s Sopwith Camel, err, dog house.

The “Peanuts” movie doesn’t come out until next year, so meanwhile, kick back with some waffles. Don’t forget to share with the Little Red-Haired Girl.

Take Disney’s Star Wars R2-D2 And C-3PO To Lunch

Star Wars R2-D2 C-3PO Tin Dome Lunch Box Workman Carry All Lunchbox

Now that Disney owns the Star Wars franchise, we will probably be seeing a bunch of new toys and collectables featuring the well-known characters — along with other characters under the massive Disney umbrella.

Expect to see forthcoming Star Wars merch with Space Mickey peeking out from behind some space rocks. Perhaps Princess Leia will find a home in Sleeping Beauty Castle. I wonder how they’ll work in poor Pluto…

As the Grand Marshals now and forever of any Main Street Electrical Parade, R2-D2 and C-3PO deserve their moment in the spotlight. The Star Wars – R2D2 & CP30 – New Tin Dome Lunch Box honors the mechanical men in a classic pre-Disney setting. There may not be any Disneyland park mascots on the lunchbox now, but just like how George Lucas re-invented the past, we should be seeing Captain EO flying in any time now…

Zoinks! It’s Monday!

Scooby Doo Zoinks! It's Morning Coffee Mug by ICUP

This Scooby Doo Zoinks! It’s Morning Coffee Mug by ICUP certainly got the sentiment correct regarding mornings. Considering that it is Monday on top of it, better make it a double shot. Can’t even blame those meddling kids for the start of the week. Jinkies!

Mickey Mouse Plate Doesn’t Like It

Sara Rose Disney Mickey Mouse Comic Plate Set of 6 - 11

Ah, dammit! Brussels sprouts again?!? Heh heh.

Apparently Mickey Mouse is very particular about what gets put on his dinner plate. Don’t get the mouse angry; you wouldn’t like him when he’s angry. Better stick to the cheese.
