Free Hasbro Game or Toy Offer
Back in October, I stocked up on Kellogg’s cereal to take advantage of the Hasbro Game or Toy Offer they were running. By inputting a special code printed inside the box, I was able to order 5 coupons good for a free Hasbro toy valued at up to $15 or a coupon for $10 off a toy that cost $25 or more.
It took just over a month for the coupons to get shipped to me, but once I had them they were easy to use at Toys R Us and Walmart to “buy” toys. I let my kids pick out one toy each for themselves and we used the other 3 coupons to pick out toys to donate to the Christmas Bureau. It was fun shopping together, and I was happily surprised by my son’s response of “Oh, that’s a nice thing to do for other kids mom!”
There are lots of great organizations collecting new toys at this time of year, but I chose the Strathcona Christmas Bureau because of their connection with the wonderful Santa we always visit at Sherwood Park Mall. In the past we have made a monetary donation during our visit with Santa, but this year it was a lot more fun to toss toys into the large donation bin. I already had a few toys I had bought to donate, but thanks to the Kellogg’s coupons we were able to give more toys and make Christmas merrier for a few more kids.
I didn’t have high hopes for our Santa visit after my daughter insisted she wanted nothing to do with Santa, so I was pleasantly surprised when she climbed up on his knee and happily chatted to him. I can’t say enough good things about this Santa and we had a lovely afternoon creating Christmas memories.
Treats for Toys
Our boxes of Rice Krispies did not stop giving with the Free Hasbro Toy. With Kellogg’s Treats for Toys program, I was also able to plan a fun little activity for my kids that gives back to the Salvation Army.
By simply making a toy inspired Rice Krispie treat and uploading the picture to the Rice Krispies website, Kellogg’s will make a donation of $20 to the Salvation Army to buy a gift for a child this Christmas. I uploaded our picture this morning and it was incredibly quick and easy.
I had a teddy bear shaped silicone mould so I decided to use that for our toy inspired treats. With a bit of store bought icing and a selection of candies, we decorated our teddy’s and created a fun bedtime snack that gives back. It doesn’t get much sweeter then that!
Thank you to Kellogg’s, Hasbro and the Salvation Army for helping us give back this Holiday Season! I love both programs and it is amazing that we were able to give so much with little more then the cost of a few boxes of breakfast cereal.
