Grins & Smiles & Giggles & Laughs

Does anybody else remember this cereal?

In my memory it tasted like perfection, like sunshine and gumdrops. In reality it probably tasted like sand. Either way it didn't matter. Just the name alone could get you through the day.

Do posts count if they are from relatives? I remember this cereal as having the same basic recipe as a multitude of others from the same era, like Quake and Freakies. But the other day I was going through a box of old junk and found a couple of magnets picturing the characters from that cereal, must have been prizes that were fought over but claimed by whichever one of us got to open the box first. Obviously that was me, because I've got the magnets. If you want, I'll mail them to you. The characters are "Laughs", think of a bow-legged Woody Allen in a blue leisure suit; and "Giggles", a blonde chick with a hairstyle like Alice from Dilbert but smiling. Carry on!

Heck yeah! I can't believe you still have those magnets. I would love to have them, if you're not too attached to them yourself. I even found a few on eBay but felt silly spending the money.
