'WEETABIX' - Free Scary Sticker






These scary stickers, one of which you see here, came free in boxes of Weetabix, I believe in the late 1980's. There was I think about 5 or 6 in the set and they all glowed - in - the dark. I have another 2 somewhere which I'll try and dig out. The stickers came in a cardfold out which also showed the others in the set. The two pictures of the Vampire and The Werewolf short comicstrips were featured on the backs of the Weetabix boxes. There may of been others in these 'The Weetabix and the...' short comicstrips. You could get some really cool free gifts with packs of cereals, shame that is longer the case.

I'm tryna track down these stickers but not having much luck so far on ebay etc. Did the set have an any 'offical' name, ie to make searching easier?

As far as I can tell the stickers were just called 'Scary Sticker'or just by putting Weetabix, thats what I usually put when looking on ebay. Just keep checking as I should think some more will turn up at some point.

All the best

My favourite was the werewolf which was taken from "The Legend of the Werewolf" starring David Rintoul and Peter Cushing. I well remember the excitement of opening the packet and never knowing which sticker would be in there.

I think these would've been more collected if they based them all on recognisable horror film characters. Copyright issues came into play, no doubt. Still they got away with TLotW.
