The Penguins of Madagascar and General Mills team up for summer fun! Review and Giveaway



General Mills is teaming up with The Penguins of Madagascar to bring fun summer adventures right to your  breakfast table!  Inside specially marked boxes of General Mills cereals, you’ll “commence operations” with one of five characters from The Penguins of Madagascar; Skipper, Rico, Kowalski, Private or King Julien. Each participating cereal contains one character launcher with mission details outlined on the back of the box including:


  • Dive In, Soldier – Set an empty plastic cereal bowl on the table and try to pop your launcher into it. Wear a helmet or you’ll be squid bait.

  • Longest Propulsion Launcher – Challenge your troops to see who can launch their character the furthest. Go long or go back to the zoo.

  • Target Practice – Create a landing zone with a spoon and try to strategically drop your character into the sweet spot. Hit the target or go back to the drawing board.

  • Clear the Wall – Do you have enough projectile pop to push your launcher over the top of the box? Proceed launchin’ troops, earn those wings!

Each character is unique and has their own specific role, and together, they’re a team with lots of character. With five character launchers to collect, make a splash this summer and try to successfully complete all of their missions.  How fun is that?    The kids have been enjoying playing with the launchers, trying to complete their missions.  They have also enjoyed seeing who can launch their penguin the furthest.  It definitely has made for some fun-filled breakfasts this week.

The Penguins of Madagascar also have a new dvd out and we were fortunate to receive a copy to review.  The kids have watched it several times already.  The Penguins were their favorite from the original Madagascar movie, so they were thrilled to learn the penguins now have their own dvd.  It was laugh out loud funny at points and definitely something the whole family could enjoy.

Be sure to keep an eye out for specially-marked packages of General Mills cereal this summer so your kids can have some breakfast fun with the Penguins of Madagascar.
