roopoo Folklore: Cereal Box Treasures.(nostalgia thread) (141* d) RE: Cereal Box Treasures.(nostalgia thread) 22 Dec 00


Wow you lot over the pond really had some good stuff! My earliest memory of the freebies is the little rotor blades on a stick that you whirled between your hands and then let go. It would be in the late 50s. That would be probably with Kelloggs Corn Flakes. Of course, with cereals that was as exciting as it got for me. My mum never bought many of the more expensive fancy ones like Ricicles. As far as I can remember, British firms seemed more interested in giving plastic roses away with washing powder. Or Christmas decorations. They were silver sycamore or maple leaves with little cones and artificial berries on. How do I remember the detail? My mum's still got some and uses them every year!
