A Bug's Life: Heimlich "Wobbler" (Kellogg's 2005)

Back in 2005-2006, Disney held an 18 month long celebration (dubbed "The Happiest Celebration on Earth") commemorating 50 YEARS of Disney Theme Parks and Resorts. During that time, everyone wanted to get in on the action. Even Kellogg's Cereal partnered up with Disney with a really fun promotion. Within each box of specially marked cereal was one Disney character inspired "Wobbler" toy! Many of you I'm sure will remember this campaign and probably have a bunch of these yourself.

There were 50 different classic Disney and Pixar characters to collect, each designed by artist Matthew Colrain (you can see them all on the ad below). As far as Pixar characters specifically though, there were 11: Buzz, Woody and an Alien from Toy Story, Heimlich (seen here) and Flik from A Bug's Life, Mike and Sulley from Monsters Inc. and Nemo, Dory, Bruce and Squirt from Finding Nemo. Each Wobbler is 3" tall, made of a hard plastic and is bottom heavy to allow them to, well, wobble. Check them out in THIS nostalgic TV commercial from 2005.

I don't remember ever getting any of these at the time, but I sure missed out! This one was given to me recently by one of my Disney Store managers before I left. It was a super fun and thoughtful little surprise to get! Plus I love Heimlich, he has to be one of my favorite Pixar characters.

I wish they would still make cereal prizes this fun! Do you remember these? Did you get any back in the day? If so, which ones? I'd love to hear your thoughts/memories down below! And if you're interested in finding any specific ones all these years later, don't worry. There's a bunch on eBay. Check out THIS DIRECT LINK to current listings! 

See you real soon for more reviews from my Pixar collection!
