A little rarity I’ve been keeping an eye out for years! I finally have my very own Peanuts Record Tote by Mattel to share with my fellow Peanuts fans. This item is copyrighted 1967 by Mattel, which is most likely the year this came out. Usually I warn against trusting these dates, but this one seems legit to me. The reason it seems reliable is that it’s right next to a 1950 copyright for the Peanuts characters, which distinguishes it from the Mattel release date copyright.
The graphics on this are phenomenal and so unique. Snoopy’s jamming on the guitar and using his doghouse as an amp. Charlie Brown is keeping the beat with his conductor’s wand. Lucy’s got her blue suede shoes dancing underneath that happy sunshine. Inside there are fold-out sleeves for 12 records. The back can be labeled with the names of all the records inside. While this Peanuts Record Tote is far from perfect, the bright graphics on the front and being almost completely intact make it a wonderful piece to display in the collection.
