I happened to look inside the cereal box this morning and was sad. There was an advertisement for a four-piece scissor set you can send away for. How adult. And how cheap!
What happened to prizes in cereal boxes?? I don’t want reminders that I’m a grown up! I want cheap plastic cartoon characters already IN my cereal box! I want color-change spoons. Matchbox cars. Sticky stretchy things sealed in plastic. Candy! Stickers! Lick ‘n press tattoos! Tiny boats with rubber band powered motors! Trading cards! Is this too much to ask?? And I wanna dig for it. I wanna stick my arm down in that box and pretend I’m on Double dare! I wanna fling oat and corn and sugar all over the room ’till I get what’s coming to me! I wanna earn my prize! Ooh – Ooh – or I wanna pour the whole box into my bowl until the prize lands on top of the pile! My sifted treasure! NO – I wanna HANG the box from the ceiling, put on a blindfold, and go pinata style on it with a baseball bat!
Then, I’m gonna play with the prize until I rip or break it – or until I get bored – which actually takes the same amount of time if you think about it…
And then I will look for another cereal box!!!
And I agree with her…. Lst time I checked they wre giving away PDA’s what kid needs a PDA from out of a cereal box?!?!?!
