Are you a fan of Snoopy? Take a look at Peanuts chess set pieces. When the Peanuts comic strip first began it's run in 1950, the show was supposed to be about a young boy named Charlie Brown who just never seemed to get anything quite right and his group of childhood friends. However, it did not take long for Snoopy, Charlie Brown's beagle to become the real star of both the cartoon strip and the animated cartoon shows that were to follow. This loveable beagle not only became a star in his own right, but became one of the most recognizable cartoon characters in the world. For three generations, children have been growing up loving Snoopy and for those who are not quite ready to leave that beloved character behind you can bring him with you into your more adult pursuits. Snoopy is now the star of the Peanuts Chess set.
Before you start feeling too sorry for poor old Charlie Brown, the makers of this chess set did not forget Snoopy's favorite owner. In fact, Charlie gets to take on a new role as King! In this delightful novelty chess set that brings back memories of childhood Lucy is the Queen, Linus complete with blanket is the bishops, Sally puts in an appearance as the knights and good old Woodstock is the rook. As for snoopy, he puts on his Joe Cool persona and appears over and over again as the 8 pawns on each side.
This chess set is a great way to teach the younger generation about the game of chess while allowing them to enjoy their favorite cartoon characters. It also makes for a great conversation piece and a great fun way to relive your own childhood while playing chess with a friend or family member.
