crazy crater critters

Sunday is never a Sunday without a trip to the car boot sale. Six months ago these fantastic bits of plastic turned up for the princely sum of 10p. I was utterly charmed. They now have pride of place in the kitchen.

Released sometime in the 1960s by Kelloggs, they came free in Sugar Smacks cereals. There were eight
Crater Critters to collect and the three creatures from the craters of outerspace here are Miss Venus, King Crater, and Glubber.

Theres a fantastic website over at crater critters
Not only can you view all the lovely critters but also hundreds of other plastic cereal freebies. Its well worth a look!
