As a kid I always loved it when my mom bought cereal that included a special prize inside. If that special prize was an actual toy I wanted, it would be even better. General Mills has been surprising American families with free prizes in cereal boxes for more than 80 years. However, for the first time ever, General Mills if offering a free customizable cars for both boys and girls through a partnership with Mega Bloks.

Each participating brand of General Mills cereals including, Honey Nut Cheerios, Reese’s Puffs, Cocoa Puffs, Lucky Charms, Golden Grahams and Cinnamon Toast Crunch, offers a free Mega Bloks car with a set of Hello Kitty and Power Rangers stickers so your kid can choose how they want their car to look. Plus the box comes with instructions, to cut out a pattern to construct a cardboard jump from the cereal box.

Hello Kitty is celebrating her 40th anniversary this year, and Power Rangers is an iconic brand that’s experiencing great growth at retail, so your kid is sure to love either sticker option to decorate their Mega Block car.

To bring the family fun to life, General Mills partnered with Maker Dad – Mark Frauenfelder – to rev up the breakfast table with a Rube Goldberg style contraption seen in this video made entirely of General Mills Mega Bloks cereal boxes.
