Paper Promotional and Toys

I am researching an old paper model premium that I found a scan of and will be redrawing it for release...in my search, I came across this site which has quite a few scans (low res) of Australian and New Zealand Cereal premiums from the 30's forward.

Details & information on breakfast cereal offers and promotions including free gifts and packet cut outs

Cool ... The first paper models I ever made, and most of them are still available.



I could just be about to re-live some almost forgotten memories.

Those are really nice!
Great to see.
cereal boxes have always brought small treasures everywhere in the world


But I would kill for old Colgate/Dr. Rabbit toothpaste boxes that could be transformed
into very simple vehicles with just one or two pre-scored cuts, and no more than
three or four folds of one of the sides to give volume to the cockpit. The windows,
and wheels/tracks were just printed on the sides, while bumpers and headlights
were printed on the lids.

I remember at least two versions of it from my childhood. One wheeled,
and one with tracks. If my memory is right, the wheels on the first one
were also pre-cut.

But I guess those are impossible to find now, as they were promo items
given to kids in primary school to "promote dental health" (or, more realistically,
to ensure future fidelity to the brand) in the early 1980s. Certainly they didn't
last long. I highly doubt anyone kept a toothpaste box from that time.

Back in the late '70s, Transamerica had tradeshow giveaway of a simple paper model of the TA tower in San Francisco. IIRC, it was @ 16" tall.

I remember having a Sulu face mask from Cornflakes and the Dr Who figures from Wheatabix. Great memories from the 70s.😊
