We came across an old metal ring that I got out of a box of cereal and I took a picture of it beside a dime to show relative size:
We sent this picture to a friend of ours and he sent us a picture he found on the Internet of the box that they came in:
I don't remember the box, but I do remember all the stuff I used to get. I really enjoyed the cut outs on the back of the boxes, especially the ones of buildings and animals. Here is a building example:
They also had all kinds of faces we kids could cut out, tie strings to them, cut out the eyes, and presto!, we had a mask. Here are some examples of them:
I had all of the above and lots more. Not only did my Mom save them for me but so did my Grandma. They saved the masks and the cutout animals, houses, etc. I guess back in those days it didn't take complicated stuff or electronic games to keep kids happy and amused. If we didn't have the right toy or object, we used our imaginations. If the weather permitted, we were outside playing. Now, try to remember all the great things you did when you were young, tell about it to the younger generation, and please have a great day, you hear?
