Every Irish household had these Simpsons magnets on the fridge in the 2000s

And many of them still do, no doubt.

BACK IN THE GOOD old days of finding toys in cereal boxes, an obsession began to grow amongst Irish families. That obsession? Collecting these Simpsons fridge magnets.

The magnets came free in boxes of Kellogg’s cereal in the early 2000s – getting all five was every Irish child’s goal in life. But it wasn’t easy.

“C’MON HOMER! …Feck sake. Another Lisa.”

It was a common goal for the whole family to strive towards

All of you, manically eating cereal to beat the band.

Some people had a couple of Marges and no Bart, or some other strange configuration

Maggie was a rare beast

Lucky to get a Maggie, you were.

A full set was a point of extreme pride

Even now, those who didn’t collect them all harbour regrets

And most fridges in Ireland still carry a few of them, faded and bashed as they may be

The magnets will live on for future generations to see and appreciate. It’s a beautiful thing.
