    anyone remember the black cauldron firgures from the 80’s? I spent ages collecting all the characters and made the special scenery out of the back of the boxes and it was………..all a bit crap 😥

    What Elf said.

    I miss the days of 3 spokey dokeys or a Tony the Tiger wheel reflector at breakfast 🙁

    Magnets in innocent smoothies – every domestic appliance is covered in the bloody things in the j household.
    Nearly as popular as Lego mini figures!

    Traveling on the motorways makes me suspect that at least some people are still getting their driving licenses from a cereal box!

    I remember having to cut out and fold the printed shape on the cornflakes packet. I ended up with a collection of animal heads which I hung in my bedroom. I felt like a big game hunter… with scissors

    Those submarines you fill with baking powder and watch them go up-down-up-down-up-down in a jug of water were ace! Where did they all go?

    You could always put your own in to amuse the children. Then when they do eventually choke on a plastic baboon just sue the arse off kelloggs and take them on holiday to the bahamas 🙂

    Again what Elf said but they were awesome weren’t they; remember we were quite skint as kids so a packet of Shreddies with a ‘Shrinkidink’ Blackhole movie piece of plastic was like Christmas

    Records on the front of Kellogs cereal at one point. Can remember cutting them out and playing them. Must have been some time in the late 80’s?

    I remember records too, I got ‘three is the magic number’ I felt really grown up that day.

    I collected a full set of figures from ‘Willow’ it took ages too as I kept getting one of the Dwarfs.

    I remember forcing my mum to change cereal brand so I could collect the Spokey Dokeys they were giving away in the box.

    These were the best ones. They also did little boats that the bubbles came out the back of, propelling them around the sink….

    It’s all part of the government’s austerity measures.

    Phah.. cheep crap. What I remember is a full working model snap-together kit of Heathrow Airport all out of a Kinder Egg.

    Now the toys are just moulded one-piece rubbish.. Sell for a fortune the early stuff.

    ZOMGROFLCOPTERSELEVENTYONE I remember those! I had a Vincent one. You put it in the oven and it magically… got a bit smaller.

    They’re still going, it seems. http://www.shrinkydinks.com/
