When I was 8 or so my grandparents got me a backpack, which they put in a cereal box and re-glued, then wrapped up as a gift.
Very clever, but I was happy as hell to get a box of Lucky Charms. With 3 older brothers and 1 older sister, a whole box of cereal to yourself would be a true Christmas miracle. I bust it open looking forward to a sugar induced nirvana and there is a stinking back pack. Practical, yes. Magically Delicious, NO.
I was disappoint.
