A Collection a Day #52 – Cereal mascots from the 1970’s, originally uploaded by Cool and Collected.
Who didn’t love having these guys join them at the breakfast table? (Some of us still do!) They recently did a study that found that kids think cereal tastes better when it comes out of a box with colorful characters printed on it. Of course it does!
The Cap’n Crunch figure in this photo is a bank and the others are vinyl premiums that you probably had to mail away for. Remember the Fruit Brute? I don’t, but the figure is cool!
Pictured from left to right: Cap’n Crunch, Boo Berry, Snap, Count Chocula, Crackle, Frankenberry, Pop, Fruit Brute, and the Trix Rabbit.
I have collected so many different things that I thought it would be fun to try and photograph a collection a day and see how far I can get.
