Cereal for dinner? Emily and I had it for dinner last night before heading out to the Nutcracker together. And no, I’m not kidding. Cereal for dinner has been happening since the 1980’s in my book. Right, Jim? Remember reading the cereal boxes? Fighting over the toys? Remember the sticky ones we threw at the wall to watch creep down onto the floor? Those were my favorite until they got all covered in dust and dirt and didn’t work so well anymore. I think we got them in our Apple Jacks. I think I even had a Honey Comb watch.
Did you know that General Mills has been surprising American families with free prizes in cereal boxes for more than 80 years? For the first time ever General Mills is now offering free customizable premiums for both boys and girls through a partnership with Mega Bloks! My kids have been collecting them from boxes of Reese’s Puffs and Cheerios for weeks now! But when this arrived in the mail from General Mills this week, they were psyched! It’s the entire interchangeable set!
“Each participating brand of General Mills cereals including, Honey Nut Cheerios, Reese’s Puffs, Cocoa Puffs, Lucky Charms, Golden Grahams and Cinnamon Toast Crunch, offers a free Mega Bloks car with a set of Hello Kitty and Power Rangers stickers and instructions to cut out a pattern to construct a cardboard jump from the cereal box. In addition to the Mega Bloks freebies promoting fine motor skills and construction play patterns for children, the offer leverages hot properties adults love too, like Hello Kitty and Power Rangers. In fact, Hello Kitty is celebrating her 40th anniversary later this month, and Power Rangers is an iconic brand that’s experiencing great growth at retail.”
The Stow kids are loving their new cars and LOVE making jumps with just about anything, so the instructions on how to create jumps out of the cereal boxes is right up their alley! Have you guys been collecting these cars?
So who wants cereal and a gift card to Target? You heard me right! The giveaway will include a sample of one of the participating General Mills cereal brands, an exclusive Mega Bloks collectible car kit and a $50 Target gift card! Tell me that’s not something you could use this holiday season!?
