Kung Fu Panda is back! General Mills is teaming up with DreamWorks´ Kung Fu Panda 2 to bring the action-packed adventures right to your breakfast table.
Being a member of MyBlogSpark has been rewarding and I am pleased to have the opportunity to take part in this new BlogSpark! General Mills has teamed up with Dreamworks, Kung Fu Panda 2 and throughout this spring, you will find Kung Fu Panda 2 Spin Fighter Toys in boxes of General Mills cereal. Participating General Mills cereals include Cocoa Puffs, Trix, Golden Grahams, Reese’s Puffs, Cheerios, Apple Cinnamon Cheerios, Cookie Crisp, Lucky Charms, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, and Honey Nut Cheerios. The back of the boxes also include cut-out character targets. The Spin Fighter Toys feature 8 different characters all in different colors so you can collect them all. The characters include Po, Tigress, Crane, Monkey, Viper, Mantis, Shifu, and Lord Shen. They each have a disk that spin off from the base by pushing a button and the disk spins and flys away.
I received a prize pack from MyBlogSpark that included a box of General Mills Cereal, and additional Kung Fu Panda 2 Spin Fighters (which is found in a box of cereal), and a DVD of the first Kung Fu Panda movie! My kids have fun playing with their Spin Fighter Toys and of course they love Kung Fu Panda! My family have always been a big fan of General Mills cereal too and all our kids have grown up (so far) with Cheerios. Cheerios have always been all three of their first real cereal and I have always felt good about giving it to them. We buy a lot of the other General Mills cereal as well. Please check the nutritional label on the boxes of cereal.
If you haven’t seen Kung Fu Panda, you should sit down with your kids and enjoy a good family movie together. It’s rated PG and it’s really funny. Po’s voice is done by Jack Black and he does the character justice. The plot of the movie isn’t all that original in my opinion but it is pretty interesting. Po works at a noodle shop and he has always looked up to the Kung Fu fighters Tigress, Viper, Monkey, Mantis, and Crane and of course Master Shifu whom has trained them all. Po would never have dreamed about actually doing Kung Fu and doesn’t know the first thing about it. He’s definitely a character that you would never think about doing Kung Fu or learning it, yet somehow he becomes the “chosen one” to become the next Dragon Warrior to take down the bad guy, Tai Lung.
The whole movie is so funny because Po (he’s the panda) because he doesn’t know the first thing about learning or doing Kung Fu and Master Shifu seems a bit discouraged because he can’t seem to fathom how Po becomes the Chosen One. Of course Po also has his rounds with Tigress because she has been training ever since she was young and can’t believe that this goofy, always hungry panda is the one to become the next Dragon Warrior. Watching the movie, you start to wonder if Po could ever actually do it.
We are still waiting to see Kung Fu Panda 2 and my kids are looking forward to it. Grab a snack with General Mills and watch Kung Fu Panda!
Kung Fu Panda 2 is coming to theaters May 27th! You can purchase General Mills cereal at your local grocery store throughout this spring to collect all 8 Kung Fu Panda 2 Spin Fighter Toys! Of course you can also find Kung Fu Panda (first one) on DVD (and I’m pretty sure on Blu-Ray) where movies are sold.
