We were all set for the first day of school.

What Happened to the Cereal Box Toy?

I got a little tingle of nostalgia this morning when I noticed our box of Froot Loops proclaimed it had a Spider-Man figure inside. Now that sugary morning cereal has reentered my life, I'd been wondering when the toys went away. I still recall the days of choosing my breakfast cereal based on what awesome … Continue reading What Happened to the Cereal Box Toy?

I Make Lists About Writing Lists
