Did you dig the prize out the second you opened the box… or wait for it to end up in your bowl?

Either way it was a special moment to hold that blessed bit of plastic or cardboard in your hands.

Bicycle wheel reflectors were a particular favourite with folks at towers, while the nostalgia fiends over at The Greatest Toys of All Time Ever turned up some amazing Rice Krispies treats.
