Snoopy Plastic Figurine by Schleich

Snoopy has a had quite the career. When not sleeping atop his doghouse he takes to the skies in his Sopwith Camel to do battle with the Red Baron. Now that’s exciting, but especially for a dog!

We’d better have a look at this prestigious pooch:

Snoopy Standing Tall

Always on top of something!

Charles M. Shultz created the Peanuts comic strip which ran from October 2, 1950, to February 13, 2000, continuing in reruns afterward. And although the star of the strip was good ‘ol Charlie Brown, it was his dog that really rose to the top.

Classic Profile

Snoopy joined the comic strip two days in on October 4th, 1950.

Snoopy Profile

Snoopy is a loyal, innocent, imaginative and good-natured beagle who is prone to imagining fantasy lives, including being an author, a college student known as “Joe Cool” and a World War I Royal Flying Ace.

Snoopy Sopwith Camel

Sopwith Camel

The Sopwith Camel was a British First World War single-seat biplane fighter aircraft introduced on the Western Front in 1917. It had been developed by the Sopwith Aviation Company as a successor to the earlier Sopwith Pup and would become one of the most iconic fighter aircraft of the First World War.

Snoopy is perhaps best known for his fighter ace persona, wearing an aviator’s helmet and goggles and a scarf.

Snoopy Headgear

This little PVC (plastic) figurine was produced by the Schleich company and is a current release available in stores now.

Snoopy Label

Schleich was founded by Friedrich Schleich in 1935. Its figurines were first released in the 1950s with the development, production and marketing of comic figurines such as Snoopy and The Smurfs. In the early 1980’s they added animal figurines and Muppet characters to their range of products.

So is Fighter Ace Snoopy your favorite, or is Joe Cool more your speed? Either way, you have to agree this is one canny canine!

Canada’s Wonderland: Merchandise

Canada’s Wonderland doesn’t have the extensive shopping opportunities of a Disney park, but it doesn’t really need to. With so many thrill rides to fill a visitors time, who is going to want to spend time spending more money?

Well, if you are one of those who just has to shop no matter where you are, here are some options for your perusal:

Who could resist a Charlie Brown shirt-pattern purse? Well, me for one. But maybe your taste leans more towards something like this?

Nothing says “I was there!” like the obligatory t-shirt. There were many to choose from at Canada’s Wonderland, but I thought the two above were extra special!

Store displays are always fun to look at, and this one certainly lets you know just which character is being featured. I love Snoopy!

Canada’s Wonderland also sells some Disney product and other basic stuff you can get anywhere. But they do carry the licensing for Charles M. Schulz’s Peanuts characters. So you can get ‘Snoopy’ and ‘Canada’s Wonderland’ on the same t-shirt.
