Besides this Jackson 5 record, other Sugar Crisp and other Post cereals had records of The Monkees and The Archies. You could cut it out of the box and it would play actual music. Many music fans these days say that old vinyl records are better than MP3s, but we think cardboard music is even better.
British and Canadian cereal Shreddies offered these Star Wars transfers in 1978. The boxes also had drawings of Star Wars settings, so you could re-enact scenes using the transfers over and over. Sadly, they did not make any transfers for the Star Wars Holiday Special.
Monster Cereals had three different Adventure Records as prizes, including "Monster Adventures in Outer Space," "Count Chocula Goes to Hollywood" and "The Monsters Go Disco," which hopefully includes Frankenberry singing a version of "Stayin' Alive."
Quake cereal was launched in 1965 and discontinued in 1972. But at some point during its run, it offered this Mini-Movie Viewer, which appears to be a small magnifying glass that you can use to see the tiny comic strip on the back of the box. This was apparently much easier than simply printing the comic strip at a normal size.
Quisp Cereal (which was promoted along with sister cereal Quake) was launched in 1965, discontinued in the late '70s, then made sporadic comebacks and can occasionally be found in some stores today. But during its original run, you could get this Quisp cloud-making squirt gun for two proofs-of-purchase plus fifty cents, which is a small price to pay for being able to control the weather.
These prizes from 1966 allowed kids to construct heads of Lincoln, Shakespeare, Napoleon and more. They helped make kids interested in history and gave them a false sense of the anatomy of the human head.

With these bike spinners, you could hook Count Chocula, Frankenstein, Booberry or the Fruit Brute onto your handlebars and have the propellers spin around while you ride. Unless the idea of having monsters directly in front of you is just too spooky.
A Willie Mays rookie card from 1951 can go for $90,000. A Willie Mays Corn Flakes card from the 1990s can be bought on eBay for $1.49. But it was originally free, which means it has still skyrocketed in value.
