Post# 235 - Kellogg: Lego My Eggo

I sent this to Kellogg on 6/24/2011:

Dear Eggo,
Have you given any thought to a cross-promotion with the Lego Folk? 
I am proposing a “Lego-shaped Eggo”.  Have one side "female" with tiny, buttery syrup-filling crevices, and the other side "male" with tiny "knobby nipples".    They would taste like Eggo Waffles and contain the wonderful nutritional value of an Eggo Waffle, but they would look and behave like an actual Lego.

Perforate the waffle in "2 knobby nipple by 2 knobby nipple" sections, so they can be separated into smaller Lego’s, and quickly assembled into make-believe homes, forts, spacecraft, and places of worship.
Imagine this: spoiled little kid asks his parents for three waffles for breakfast instead of one.  Why?  Is he hungry?  Nope.  It turns out, he wants to build a bridge over syrup river.  You just sold three waffles instead of one, pardner.
Studies conclusively show that children who are engaged in crafts and projects perform higher on standardized testing than children who follow a “hands-off” approach. 
Kids could collect UPC symbols from discarded packages and send away for real Lego kits.  Photo contests, where you give a subject and kids send photos of their completed projects could stimulate imagination.

What do you think?

Sincerely,
Jerry
