Cereal Box Gifts of Iran






In America one must consider if children actually concerned themselves with the taste of the cereal or the gifts that were packed in the bottom of the boxes. When I was a child, these were cheap plastic items, I seem to recall a submarine.  In the 1950's it appears metal bicycle licence plates from around the world, featuring Iran were all the rage. Notice the prominence of the Iranian men in the upper left!
