The Penguins of Madagascar Partner with General Mills!

11:31 PM

As a child, I remember digging into the bottom of each cereal box my mom bought, eagerly searching for the next fun prize!  Sadly, most of today's boxes don't hold this same fantastic promise, giving most of their prizes by mail-in offer.  We did recently buy a box of General Mills cereal that had an actual toy instead, however, and it featured one of my kids' favorite cartoon characters - The Penguins of Madagascar!  So when MyBlogSpark asked me to share the recent partnership, I jumped!


Inside specially-marked packages of General Mills cereal, you can get a Skipper, Rico, Kowalski, Private, or King Julien character launcher that kids can fling across the floor.  My kids LOVE these silly little toys.  And since we watch the Penguins cartoon all the time, it's especially exciting for them.

Isn't it crazy how the simplest things (like a tiny toy) can give kids so much entertainment?  




Wanna Win? We have a fun Penguins prize pack to offer a lucky reader that includes one box of Trix cereal, a Penguins of Madagascar launcher (like you get in the box) and the The Penguins of Madagascar Operation: DVD Premier (which features lots of super-hilarious episodes to enjoy with your family!)  To be entered to win, just tell us which character you like the best (I'm a King Julien fan, myself.)  You have until September 2nd at 11:59 pm CST to get your entries in, and you CAN ENTER EVERY DAY!  (Just comment as directed for the first entry, and then enter with "today's entry" for each entry after that. 

 Giveaways are subject to complete site rules. Open to persons 18+ U.S. only, please.  (Be sure to give us a way to reach you if you win, and remember that we will never use your email or contact info for anything other than to send your prize.) Good luck, and be sure to check out all of our other giveaways!

*Prize packs and all information were provided by General Mills and Nickelodeon through MyBlogSpark.
