cool things we got in cereal packets

Post by JMK853 » Tue Jan 09, 2007 2:08 pm

I remember getting dragon and dungeon holograms in my shredded wheat.

They were about the size of a postage stamp mounted on a small card with a logo and explanation as to who the character was on the back.

I had never seen a hologram before. and I had to eat the bloody things for weeks just so mum would buy more and I could get another hologram card.

But they were soooo cool.

I've still got some of the D&D holograms, Ghostbuster slide transfers, Frosties holograms and various other things in a box in the loft.

Yep, everything that comes from Amstrad ends up being given away like that. But if the public won't buy it, what can you do!

I got a lord of the rings moving picture thingy (those cards that show a small piece of fim when you look at different angles).
I have mounted it with a couple of film stills, a replica Ring and Sean Austin and Elijah Wood's autographs. Looks cool.

I also remember getting Doctor Who ( Tom Baker ) pop out and stand cards from my weetabix.

Something had happened in the factory , and my cereal box had about ten packs in it.
I was over the bloody moon, and had loads of swaps in the schoolyard that day.

Seem to remember some sort of speedboat things coming free with Kellogs Cornflakes that involved putting baking soda and vinegar into to "fuel" them.
Worked suprisingly well too...
