I don't know what it is...I'm not a sucker for advertising. But slap that Bat Symbol on a pile of dirt, and I'm there. Not so much any more...you'll be amazed at how bringing a child into this world curtails the purchasing of unnecessary material goods. But, I'm still a sucker for tie-ins. Particularly if they're bat-related. You've already seen the cereal. Now here's my soup. And, to be honest, I was a little (just a little) bit disappointed when I found out my 3-year-old got to eat it.
I thought this was one of the coolest send-aways I've seen in a while (from Crispix, with two UPC symbols and $6.99). It's an R2-D2 dome that doubles as a cereal bowl. The mini lego AT-AT is in the foreground for comparison. The diameter of the bowl is nearly 9 inches. Now that's what I call a cereal bowl. You can't really see it, but when you push down on the bowl, a red light flashes in the base while it makes R2-D2 sounds. That's just plain cool.
And of course, I can't get enough at the store, so what did I carve in my pumpkin this year? I'm so ashamed...(ok, maybe I'm not).
Old School. No kit. No pattern.
Just a pencil and the knife from the silverware drawer.
