On The Hunt For More Minions

Do you remember being a kid and being super excited to dig through a cereal box to find the toy inside? I do. I didn't really eat cereal but I remember fighting to grab the box from my brother so I would be the first to get the toy. I also remember getting into lots of trouble for being mean to my brother and for sticking my hands in the cereal box. These are some of my favorite Saturday morning childhood memories so you can imagine how excited I was when I found out that there were now toys inside some General Mills cereals. Yup, there are now Minions toys inside specially-marked General Mills cereals at Walmart. I quickly wrote down "fun cereal" on my grocery list!!

The next time we went grocery shopping, we hit up the cereal aisle. The kids saw the Minion movie boxes before I did. All of a sudden I saw 4 cereal boxes in my shopping cart. Yup 4 boxes!

The kids (and JC) are super excited for the new Minions movie coming out this week so they were super anxious to see which Minions they would find! There are 7 Minions to collect, including an exclusive Prehistoric Minion only available in cereal boxes sold at Walmart!

Thankfully, the toys were not inside the cereal! They were inside the box. No broken boxes or bags of cereal! All the fun, less mess!

We found these three (one was doubled) inside our boxes. I have already been asked to go back to Walmart and buy more cereal!! We need to collect them all!

Do you remember digging through cereal boxes to find the toy? 
Are your kids on the hunt for all 7 Minion toys?


  1. YES, I totally remember getting toys in the cereal box as a kid! I'm glad they don't put them inside the cereal anymore like they did when we were kids lol. We'd make a mess trying to get the toy out from the bottom of the bag where they'd always be!

  2. That used to be the highlight of my life! I love prizes in cereal. And I love all of these cereals!

  3. How fun to share the experience of finding the toy in the cereal box with your children! And what better prize to find than a Minion?! #client
