Are toys making a comeback in cereal ?

So recently we had gone food shopping and of course breakfast cereal was on the list. I was surprised to see on a few boxes that there are actual toys inside! Remember the good ole days of getting a new box of cereal and going through the box looking for the all important prize ? Are they back ?

The first toy was in a box of "Cookie Crisp" the "Star Wars" pen. Cute little toy, Star Wars fans would love writing with the "Darth Maul" red pen !

The second box I saw a toy in was "Trix"

The "Color Changing Spoon" ! Another cool toy!

So my questions:

A) Have cereals been offering toys again for a long time ?

B) What changed the cereal company's mind about putting toys in the box?

C) What was the best prize you ever got in a cereal box ?

So back to the "color changing spoon" the milk makes the plastic change color by temperature ! Science kids lol and you can collect "3" different colors ! Wow takes me right back to 1975

I must admit I think the best toy I collected back in 1975 ( dont say it ) was the " Mini State License Plates "
do you remember those ? We'd put them on our bikes and big wheels lol

So what was the best toy you ever got out of a cereal box ? Do you still have any ?

Oh and yes highest bidder gets my Darth Maul Pen ! Whatcha willing to spend ?
