Post-Thanksgiving Wrap Up 2013

We're a little late with this one probably due to the lack of any surprises and/or new product mobile appearance.  But at the very least, it's always nice to catch up with old friends.   Thanksgiving mainstays, Planter's Nutmobile and Ronald McDonald's Big Red Shoe made their annual appearances at this year's Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade:



While it's always nice to seem them, I would mind seeing some new faces bumpers next year.

Ice Cream Float

As we chronicle the world of Product Mobiles, blog entries are typically populated by vehicles with four (or more) wheels and an engine.  Of course, there have been exceptions.  We've seen three-wheelers, motor bikes, trailers and even hot air balloons.  If it travels and is in a weird shape, it usually qualifies.

That brings us to a first on this blog:  a Product Mobile Boat!  Take a big swig of the Shamrock Shake boat:


It floated along the green dyed Chicago River on Saint Patrick's Day 2011.  Captain Ronald McDonald can add this beauty to his various Big Red Shoe Cars.

Shaved Ice

I'm looking for more information on this one:


The Gillette Fusion Zamboni from a few years ago is awesome.  I'm not sure if it still hits the ice or not.
