General Mills Breakfast Plush Pals

Tucked away on one of my many shelves are these six cereal-related plush dolls.

Known as the “General Mills Breakfast Plush Pals,” from left to right are: Wendell the Baker (Cinnamon Toast Crunch), Honey Nut Cheerios Bee, Sonny the Cuckoo Bird, Lucky the Leprechaun, Count Chocula, and Chip the Cookie Hound. Originally there were seven plushies released. While Trix may be for kids, Trix the Rabbit plush dolls make fine chew toys for dogs.

I believe these dolls were released during the height of the Beanie Baby craze, and General Mills weren’t the only company cashing in on them. At least one other company (Kellogg’s) had a set of plushies as well that included (at least) Dig ‘Em, Toucan Sam, Corny the Rooster, Tony the Tiger, and Snap, Crackle, and Pop.
