I have always been fascinated by the Mr. Peanut man and to this day can’t figure out why this image (and all the kitsch it covers) is still incredibly popular. I came across these Mr Peanut items while rifling through the S&P shakers at Willis Wonderland.

Stunning, vintage black & tan Mr Peanut s & p shakers. The s & p come out the top of his hat and you pull the hat off to fill them up.

I don’t drink martinis anymore but I would definitely be tempted if all martinis were served in glasses like this. 2 olives, slightly dirty please.

I love this one. I came across this coffee cup size mug while routing around in the kitchen cabinets. This is also made of plastic.

I don’t recall seeing solid colors of Mr Peanut products but these red ones are really tops!

    You missed the Mr. Peanut peanut butter maker! No, you actually didn’t miss it. It’s too big and is in my storage garage. It wasn’t made until the 1980’s unlike those pictured here which were all from the 50’s. I was never to see about Mr. Peanut himself but I absolutely loved all of his accoutrements.
