Yes, we know it's a little bit of a contradiction in terms, but here's where you can talk about Norev, Minialuxe, Siku, Polistil, Tomte, Auburn, Sun Rubber or any other ready-made model car that's made of plastic or rubber. Hey, they're still cast in dies!

Cereal Box Toys 7 years, 6 months ago #1

I have kept from my childhood a small collection of cars from Kellogs breakfast cereals.


Made by Rosenhain & Lipmann from Melbourne, the later production was moved to Mexico around 1978. The ones I have are mostly Vintage and Veteran cars, Bullnose Morris Cowley , early Bugatti, Renault.


These are clip together kits and I assembled and detailed a couple when I was a lot younger which I photographed with a Dinky MG to show the size.

I will post pictures later of a couple of Chitty Bang Bang cars which came free with a cereal , one is unopened & still in it's paper bag, the other was torn so I took it out to photograph. I think the  wings were cut from the box as they are not in the pack with the car


This is another interesting project keep it up all I am intrigued.

Back in the 80s they resurrected them and at the time a show  called the flying sub was being shown and it was around bommy night so I undid some fireworks rockets air bombs etc stuffed the sub with the powder and instead of flying around like the sub in the show it just went bang and there wasnt much left of the sub...

I once saved up the tokens from Frosties  for a RAF helicopter kit in the late 70's  & never received it !


I might complain to them & get a years free supply!

Never seen them before mate. Who gave them away? and what date do you think?

Re: Cereal Box Toys 7 years, 6 months ago #12

Did you have to cut tokens of the cereal box or did they fall into the breakfast bowl? Never seen these before and thanks for sharing

I think it was Kelloggs not sure though. Someone may know on here?


 


I would say that they came in with the cereal hence the paper bag they are in.
