We hope all our BreyerFest Blog readers had an enjoyable weekend. Were you able to guess our clue?
When the Events Team discovered this niche snack food of yore, we knew we just HAD to name a BreyerFest model in honor of this delightful, donkey-driven confection.
In the late 1890s and early 1900s, Peanutine was a treat that was unique to the shores of Old Orchard Beach in Maine and sold to customers via a peanut-shaped wagon pulled by a tandem of donkeys. The recipe is simple and can be found here, and while there is little known about how many of these adorable wagons were made, their legacy lives on through beautiful postcards that have been preserved.
To pay tribute to this adorably odd piece of driving history, our Peanutine model has been done as a handsome dark brown spotted donkey on Brighty, mold #375, sculpted by the iconic Chris Hess.
This Special Run model will be available to VIP and All-Access Ticket holders and will make a great addition to your Brighty conga! We will see you right back here on the BreyerFest Blog tomorrow for more!
