Cereal Killers of Lockdown 2020

I can’t believe it’s two years since the Krispi tribe appeared in early Lockdown. One of them still survives amongst my assorted troops.

Slightly more sensible plastic “cereal killers”, the Crescent / Kellogg’s Plastic bandsmen and colour party.

https://manoftinblog.wordpress.com/2020/04/03/more-cereal-killers/

I found an advert / box back of these fine bandsmen shown online with original box backs and adverts whilst spending happy hours last week on the cereal ‘premium’ website http://cerealoffers.com, where I found again the cardboard Asterix figures and Weetabix scenes of my childhood.

“FREE IN THIS PACKET at the bottom of the inner bag” – free toy soldiers in your cornflakes – imagine that today!
