Gain insight into what a Peanuts Collector will really pay for Snoopy memorabilia in today's collectors' market.

Snoopy Toy Box

Vintage 1965 SNOOPY Woodstock Dog House Toy Box Charlie Brown Peanuts No Roof – $119. Find it on eBay (affiliate links).

Let’s start off with all the obvious points about this Snoopy toy box. First! It’s not from 1965! This toy box was made in 1983 and was sold exclusively at Sears. Second! There is no roof. Where is Snoopy meant to sleep if not on the roof of his doghouse?

Frankly, a missing roof is a deal breaker for me. There are two pieces to this Snoopy Toy Box and fifty percent of them are gone. Granted, it’s not important bit with Snoopy and Woodstock on it. However, what’s the point of putting all the toys away in your toy box if you can’t neatly tuck them away from view with a handy red roof? Perhaps some kid got crazy ideas and climbed up on top to sleep on the roof. We’ll never know!

How much is a Snoopy Toy Box worth?

If you’re buying this Snoopy Toy Box online, I would first look at the shipping price. This would be pretty expensive to ship. Over-sized and kinda heavy, it would be cumbersome and pricey to ship. Make sure you know how much it’s going to cost before committing. Keep an eye on local classified ad sites, because you never know if one might show up! You may also get a bargain, since the pool of potential buyers is smaller.

As is, I wouldn’t pay more than $30-40 maybe for this Snoopy Toy Box. If I needed a replacement toy box bottom, this might just do the trick. If all I have is just this bottom though, it would be tricky to ever find an orphaned roof. Who would keep the roof? Would the seller even know what they had? There’s one intact toy box on eBay, but very worn and dirty for $150. While its not as nice as this one, at least its all there and for not much more. Not that I would pay that. Mint condition at $150, I might just go for it. I already have one and its a delight to have in the Snoopy room.
