Even if we had Cheerios we added sugar. Trix are always for kids. I had forgotten about Alpha Bits.
I didn't like Capt. Crunch because it left a thick coating on my teeth .... LOL but loved Rice Krinkles in both flavors. Do you remember the commercial with the little Chinese guy? My husband still imitates that commercial. All the cereal commercials were the best back then.
Raisin Bran in the 60's was horrible because you couldn't chew the raisins but you also only got about 12 to an entire box.

I do remember the records (floppy but still played). Great memories stirred up from this thread.

Thanks for the laughs.
I was going through some boxes, and I found one of my old plastic "Sherry Lewis" finger puppets from the early 60's - Lamb Chop. I also had the donkey (I forget what his name was), and Hush Puppy. They came in boxes of Puffed Wheat/Rice cereal. There were some neat things you could get from mailing in the box tops with a dollar or two - remember the Hanna Barbara character spoons, with Yogi Bear, Quick Draw McGraw, or Huckleberry Hound on the handle? Wish I still had them. I had a kids' sized dish set that my mother sent away for, with all the Hanna Barbara characters on it - depicting a picnic at Jellystone Park.

Not sure when in came out, but it was one of my favorites in the 1970s.

I'm 63. I'm pretty sure that one of my first memories is when I was between 0 and 4 and I got breakfast all by myself, which was Rice Crispies, milk and blueberries from the bushes around our driveway. When we harvested the blueberries, my mother and I would have to go through a pasture with a bunch of cows from the farm next door.

I remember those 45 records that you had to cut out off the box and I might even have one around somewhere. They played but had a tendency to slip on the turntable.

I remember those. I had these small, plastic Winnie The Poo characters that had their arms positioned so that they were hanging on the side of the bowl. I forget which cereal they came in.
