TONY THE TIGER SKY RIDE

This is one of the coolest Kellogg's premiums from the 1970's. Tony the Tiger's Sky Ride has such a sleek look that it must have been inspired by Disneyland's Monorail.

I finally put mine together and after locking the battery in place and turning the switch, it zipped over the track. As I watched it race around and around I could picture some early 70's kid sitting on a linoleum floor in the kitchen doing the same thing.


Here's a link to a scan of the box back from The Imaginary World.

I remember getting that as a kid. It would never run for me though. The car would get caught on the track joints and stop.
