They need to bring back toys in cereal boxes , I'm just saying

I am having my second bowl of Reese’s puffs and I add peanut butter out of the jar. At 55 I remember the toys in cereal boxes we us older boys always gave them to our younger two brothers.

Although today all toys could be mine.

1. I just think the toys need to be upgraded, or need to cater to adults.

I'm thinking along the lines of generic remote controls, or handy gadgets for the keychain or maybe the sock I lost in the dryer.

4. I remember

Dumping the entire contents of the box out into a bowl to find the prize.

Remember when Little Caesars used to give out free toys and stuff? I still have my purple plastic LC spoons.

10. Nope!

I use them for scoopers in my flour and sugar canisters.

I remember they also gave out these little rubber toys that looked like a suction cup. You turned it inside out, set it on the table, and it would go POP! and fly up in the air. You could make babies laugh forever with those things.

5. No matter how long you let them soak they still were hard to chew.

Shredded up the roof of your mouth, but I loved it!

12. I got one in a box of Lucky Charms a few month ago!

It was a little Cinnamon Toast Crunch guy, part of a “Collect Them All” company/brand mascots thing.

Sadly, it was tucked between the bag and the box, so I didn’t get to jam and wiggle my whole arm down to the bottom of the cereal.

14. I remember getting Tony the Tiger from a box of Frosted Flakes when I was little

and being absolutely astonished by it. A free toy!

A few years later my brother and I got those tiny plastic submarines that rose and sank. You put baking soda in a little compartment to make it work.
