This 1960’s commercial is full of awesome (except I can’t imagine combining Cheerios and V-8), and I certainly would have saved my boxtops for this Moon Rocket Kit. Thanks to Chris Hadfield, who shared this video today via Twitter, saying, “I’m concerned how @cheerios landed their astronauts on the Moon – Ouch!”

    When I was 7 years old or so I had the GI Joe space capsule

    which I kept in pretty good condition until I let my son play with it. The GI Joe figure even had the spacesuit. I even had the original box it came in. I later found this item is a bit of a collector’s item in the toy department. My son tore it up, which did not really make me very happy.

    I think it was also Cheerios that later on included a single random mission patch in their box. They had patches for all missions up through Apollo. Unfortunately, they made up their patches, but I would add them one at a time around the border of a large moon map. I loved Cheerios, but couldn’t eat enough to get all patches, so I finally wrote to them and they gladly sent me an entire set.
