If you are a fan of the franchise, you may have heard about the Star Wars pens in cereal boxes 2013 edition from General Mills. If not, I’m going to tell you about them today.
Disclosure: I received free samples of cereal and the pens.
Star Wars Pens in Cereal Boxes 2013
As I’m sure we’re all aware, they are in the process of re-booting the Star Wars film franchise. So, it definitely seems like a good time for companies to promote the characters by including them in their packaging. Well, General Mills has taken this a step further by placing Star Wars pens in cereal boxes for 2013. Right now, you can collect all 8 pens by purchasing specially-marked boxes of GM cereals.
In the picture above, you can see all 8 of those limited edition pens featuring characters from the series. You can also spot three of the cereals you can find with the pens in them along with the special packaging telling you about the pens they contain. I think they make it really easy to spot the special packages, which allows you to collect them easily.
My boyfriend is a fan of Star Wars and owns all of the films on DVD. So, I surprised him with the nice package I received (from my “cereal lady”). He liked them and thought they were neat. I love that General Mills is rewarding us for enjoying our favorite cereals by placing the Star Wars pens in cereal boxes in 2013. It’s kind of like being a little kid again, trying to get a toy out of the cereal box. However, this “toy” is really cool and useful (I mean it is a pen after all). I don’t believe I will be taking these pens to school… They will be staying at the apartment for us to enjoy.
So, have you started collecting Star Wars pens in cereal boxes yet?
