Do you remember being a kid and seeing your mom or dad come home with that new box of cereal? Well, what’s more exciting than getting a new box of cereal? That’s right! Getting a new toy in your box of cereal!

I recently headed over to Walmart and discovered the Minion Toys were available in select varieties of General Mills Cereals! Our kids love the Minions and are gonna go nuts over these little gems! I was gonna pick up two boxes and decided to go for four of them since four of our six kids really love Minions. General Mills Cereal varieties included Honey Nut Cheerios, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Lucky Charms, Reese’s Puffs, Trix, Cocoa Puffs and Golden Grahams in the XL/Family Size boxes. I not only found them in the aisle with a little Minions sign, but I found a display in the middle of the large aisles as well. They were only $3.98 per box.

Our kids love digging in the box to get the toy out. I don’t know about you, but I cringe a little when the toy is actually in with the cereal itself (like it was when we were kids). I love that General Mills Cereal has the toy wrapped by itself and is outside of the plastic bag of cereal in the box. No getting your hands dirty or getting dirty hands on the cereal. Great idea General Mills Cereal!

While we bought four boxes of cereal, we only found three different Minion toys. Not only can they fit these little toys in their pockets (making it easy to take with us when we go see the Minions Movie), but they connect together as well. Our kids can’t wait to collect the other four! Remember, you’ll only be able to get the 7th Minion Toy with General Mills Cereal at Walmart! So be sure to head there and pick up your favorite General Mills Cereal flavor and collect all 7 of the Minion toys!

  1. That’s so genius that General Mills has the toy packaged separately from the cereal. What a totally different experience than what we had growing up! #client

    I love the idea of letting my kids find a Minions toy in their cereal! I so remember loving finding toys in my cereal when I was a kid and I think this is a great way for them to have the same experience!

  3. Oh we all love the Minions! Our favorite of these cereals would have to be Honey Nut Cheerios! I remember looking for secret toys in cereal boxes when I was a kid.

    It’s pretty clever how Walmart teamed up with the Minions to bring more people to the store. I know how crazy kids are about the Minions…

    Cereal that has the wrapped toy by itself and is outside of the plastic bag of cereal in the box. why didn’t we think of this sooner?? I remember as a kid, dumping the cereal into into a bowl and shifting for the toy.
