General Mills Review/Giveaway with MyBlogSpark


I have to admit this is one of my favorite reviews I’ve done so far. I mean who doesn’t like cereal, a toy and a movie. I received includes one box of Trix cereal, a Penguins of Madagascar launcher and the new Penguins of Madagascar movie, The Penguins of Madagascar Operation: DVD Premier.

This summer you will find penguins inside of specially marked General mills cereals. No, not a real penguin, silly. The new Penguins of Madagascar characters are hiding inside the boxes on a character launcher. If your kid is like mine, there favorite cereal is dictated by the toy in the box. We loved the Trix and my kids ate the entire box in just 2 days. We also received 2 of the character launchers to try out. On the back of the box there are mission details that you can try:

  • Dive In, Soldier - Set an empty plastic cereal bowl on the table and try to pop your launcher into it. Wear a helmet or you´ll be squid bait.
  • Longest Propulsion Launcher - Challenge your troops to see who can launch their character the furthest. Go long or go back to the zoo.
  • Target Practice - Create a landing zone with a spoon and try to strategically drop your character into the sweet spot. Hit the target or go back to the drawing board.
  • Clear the Wall - Do you have enough projectile pop to push your launcher over the top of the box? Proceed launchin´ troops, earn those wings!

You will receive one of the five characters from the popular movie, The Penguins of Madagascar; Skipper, Rico, Kowalski, Private or King Julien in the box of cereal.

Each character is different and has their own specific role, and together, they´re a team with lots of character. With all five character launchers to collect, your summer will be a splash while you try to complete all of the above missions. My kids favorite mission was to try to shoot them over the box. They got pretty good at all of the missions.
