Description (Brief)
This hand puppet , Crackle, is one of the three characters used to represent the famous Kellogg's Rice Krispies cereal. The head is synthetic molded rubber, his hands are red felt and he is dressed in a red cotton shift. Snap, Crackle and Pop. were created in the 1930s as spokesmen for Kellogg's Rice Krispies; their images are based on drawings by illustrator Vernon Grant and cartoonist Don Margolis. These three little sprites were popular images used to advertise cereal to children.
.This particular set of puppets from the early 1960s were offered as premiums for saving cereal box tops. These familiar elves continue to represent the Rick Krispies brand today.
