I remember a time when prizes in the cereal boxes and Cracker Jacks were really something to get excited about. They were mostly plastic, which many adults at that time would complain about but they were still better than the lame paper cards and things the companies use as premiums now. Although, when my kids were growing up they had the Beanie Babies in many of the Big G cereals and they were very cute.

When I was growing up our kids shows were so much more entertaining. I think that it was because we had to wait for them making the shows a treat not an every day thing; I loved the Jetsons, New Zoo Revue, and Captain Kangaroo.
It is fun to reminisce about a time when things were a little more simple; that is not to say I would want to ever go backwards, but it is always good to check the review mirror every once in a while.
