That’s corny- a corn flake camera?

Who doesn’t need a camera at breakfast? Momma ordered this 110 camera with box tops…it’s never been out of the package or the box it was mailed within-can you even get 110 film anymore?

Say Cheese! (or cornflakes, rather.)

    I’ve never seen this camera. I love that it’s still in plastic in the box. Hard to see but is the camera just the little middle section that says Kellogg’s or is the bulk of the camera transparent and attached to that black horizontal bar at the top?

    This Velveeta camera that I posted a while ago was procurred with box tops as well: http://www.alleewillis.com/blog/2010/05/26/allee-willis-kitsch-o-the-day-%E2%80%93-lipstick-cam-and-food-for-thought-party-photos/

    Did your mom get it in the 80′s?

    It’s just the black portion that is the camera-the plastic 110 film would actually be exposed (slight pun meant) once it’s clipped into the camera.
    I checked to see if there’s a post mark on the box to give us a production date but sadly there isn’t one.

    (I’m guessing it’s from the 80′s though.)

    Oh, if you need another Velveeta camera I’m looking at one. Never been used although it is out of the mailing box. Momma struck again wth the boxtops.

    My mom sent away for one of these for me too! It’s around here somewhere.

    I don’t think you can get 110 film just anywhere anymore but you can probably find it on a photography/toy camera hobby site.
