Big G Hot Wheels Review & Giveaway

If you look in my cabinets you will see that General Mills rules the breakfast around here. My daughter eats Reese’s Puffs or Lucky Charms every morning and I love Cookie Crisp or Cheerios (I am such a kid). My daughter and I was so excited when MyBlogSpark asked me to do this review for General Mills. They sent me a prize pack that included 1 box each of Cheerios® 14 oz, Cinnamon Toast Crunch® 17 oz, Lucky Charms® 16 oz, Reese’s Puffs® 18 oz, and Cookie Crisp® 15.6 oz that each included a custom designed collectible Hot Wheels pullback racer.


First some info from General Mills:

Start your engines with Big G in the morning! Big G cereals have teamed up with Hot Wheels® to make family time at the breakfast table fun, offering collectible Hot Wheels® pullback racers inside specially marked boxes along with a unique access code to the Hot Wheels® Racing Circuit!


Starting January 24th, inside each participating cereal box (Cheerios® 14 oz, Cinnamon Toast Crunch® 17 oz, Lucky Charms® 16 oz, Reese´s Puffs® 18 oz, and Cookie Crisp® 15.6 oz), you´ll be able to "gas and go" with one of four custom-designed collectable Hot Wheels® pullback racers. Each car contains a code to unlock an exciting online racing game.

When it comes to meals, breakfast is important in helping kids fuel up for the day and Big G cereals provides a healthy breakfast choice for parents to offer their families. You can feel good about giving your kids a bowl of Big G cereal and they´ll be thanking you for a breakfast that is as tasty as it is fun!

Now my take:

Being that we are already fans of General Mills we loved this promotion. My daughter is such a tomboy when it comes to Hot Wheels. I think she has 50 or more Hot Wheels already. They are in a separate pack on the top when you open the cereal box so your child will not feel like they need to empty the cereal to find it. With each pullback racer they include a code (located on the sticker sheet that comes with the car) that unlocks a racing game online. My daughter got online and absolutely loved it.
