Marketers love my children.

“Guys, I’m going grocery shopping today. What kind of stuff would you like me to get for breakfast?”

Ryan replies slowly and with a sigh,

“Mom, just look for a cereal box with a picture of a toy on it. That means it has a toy inside. We’ll like that cereal.”

Little does he know I avoid “prize inside” cereal at all costs.

One toy. Three children. I don’t need that kind of drama at breakfast time.

  1. I sooo went through this yesterday! I had a handful of BOGO free coupons for Kellogg cereals…I should’ve never given them a choice.

    One of my favs…a gigantic box of some cereal they don’t even like but wanted b/c it had a ‘step meter’ inside. Do they really need to know how many steps a day they take? Uh, no.

  2. Solution:

    Go to the dollar store and buy a three-pack of some sort of junkie toy. Buy the cheapest or healthiest cereal–the kind that doesn’t come with a toy.

    Place your three toys in it and shake it up.

    Even spending money on the toys–I bet you’ll come out cheaper than those expensive and nutritionally empty cereals!

    Then you and Little Pastor can laugh your heads off at how excited they are about a cereal with THREE TOYS IN IT! WOW!
