Penguins of Madagascar

General Mills & The Penguins of Madagascar Review and Giveaway:

Along with family vacations and trips to the zoo, General Mills is teaming up with Nickelodeon’s The Penguins of Madagascar to bring the action-packed adventures of summer to you very own breakfast table.

The promotion:

Inside specially marked boxes of General Mills cereals, you’ll “commence operations” with one of five characters from The Penguins of Madagascar; Skipper, Rico, Kowalski, Private or King Julien. Each participating cereal contains one character launcher with mission details outlined on the back of the box including:

  • Dive In, Soldier – Set an empty plastic cereal bowl on the table and try to pop your launcher into it. Wear a helmet or you’ll be squid bait.
  • Longest Propulsion Launcher – Challenge your troops to see who can launch their character the furthest. Go long or go back to the zoo.
  • Target Practice – Create a landing zone with a spoon and try to strategically drop your character into the sweet spot. Hit the target or go back to the drawing board.
  • Clear the Wall – Do you have enough projectile pop to push your launcher over the top of the box? Proceed launchin’ troops, earn those wings!

Each character is unique and has their own specific role, and together, they’re a team with lots of character. With five character launchers to collect, make a splash this summer and try to successfully complete all of their missions.


First, General Mills. What’s not to love? I have to admit, Cheerios are my favorite! My kids love all of the General Mills cereals. Trix are my kids favorite. They never last more than a day after we buy them. My wife likes them for a snack!

The Penguins of Madagascar, is hilarious! It is an animated film that any adult will love too making it a perfect family movie! I love the penguins. The music is fun and catchy! We even noticed smiles and giggles from my fifteen year old and she doesn’t like anything that has to do with family time!
