In a couple of months, our grocery stores will start stocking the greatest cereals ever made. Yes, the cereals based on classic monsters like Dracula, Frankenstein’s monster, and … a ghost. OK, the 1970s were a more forgiving time when it came to these concepts.
Regardless, every year we buy boxes of County Chocula, Franken Berry, and Boo Berry and remember a tiny slice of our childhood. But why wait another year when you can own physical representations of the classic cereal mascots?
Jada Toys, the folks bringing us classic Universal Monster toys later this year, is now tackling child-friendly versions of the horror icons.
Breakfast at midnight? Our favorite Transylvanian chocoholic Count Chocula likes nothing better than to dig into a bowl of the classic General Mills cereal, and now you can collect this transfixing General Mills Count Chocula 6-Inch Scale Action Figure– replete with accurately sculpted and painted details. Count Chocula arrives with an alternate head, accessories, and retro cereal-centric window box packaging.
What’s sweet, pink, and animated? More specifically, reanimated. It’s your General Mills Franken Berry 6-Inch Scale Action Figure! Fully licensed and articulated, he’s ready to show off all his scary sculpted and painted details. Pose him on a collector’s shelf or next to your breakfast bowl. This man-made monster arrives with an alternate head, accessories, and retro cereal-centric window box packaging.
Where’s Yummy Mummy? Or Fruit Brute? Most aggravating of all … where is Boo Berry?! OK, those guys are probably on the way in the future if these two sell well. So, what are you waiting for? Head on over to Entertainment Earth and pre-order your not-so-scary cereal mascots.
What other cereal mascots deserve the action figure treatment? Cookie Crook? Sugar Bear? Cap’n Crunch? Let us know in the comments.
