Greetings to all Cracker Jack collectors! :hiya:
I am wondering if *any* of these items are Cracker Jack prizes :|d

The vehicles are hard plastic and hollow. The two green vehicles are "snap togethers" and the wheels move. But they are much larger than the normal "Snap together" prizes that Cracker Jack put out:

:hiya: Hi Ginger,

In the bottom row the two rightmost pieces are Cracker Jack prizes (or parts of prizes). I don't believe the rest are CJ. The blue chicken piece on bottom row 2nd from right is part of the snap-together Henny Penny prize. It slips through another piece (missing) that is marked "Henny Penny." The pink horse in bottom row rightmost is part of a snap together prize also and is missing a piece. I'll verify later, but if I remember correctly there is a rider (ballerina or circus performer perhaps) that goes with the horse.

:hiya: Hi Ginger and All,

Here is what the two bottom row rightmost prizes look like when unassembled. This image shows the missing pieces. :flowers:

Thanks Gail! :angel2: I definitely appreciate your input. It looks as though I have 2 pieces of 2 C.J. prizes. But that is ok...I will keep them anyway! -Ginger

Hi Ginger,

You may not be able to see it in the photo, but the Henny Penny chick when set into the slot on the flat piece and coaxed with a finger will bob up and down and peck at little specks of grain/gravel/corn (whatever Henny Penny pecked at) that are embossed on the top of the prize.

Hi Gail! :bee:
I hadn't noticed that until you mentioned it! :|p Perhaps one day I will find the missing part to my Henny Penny. Do you have the little book "Henny Penny"? It's cute! :) -Ginger

:hiya: Hi Ginger and all,

Yes I do have the mini storybook "Henny Penny," but had forgotten about it until you mentioned it here. That will be my weekend reading :popcorn:

I don't remember that story. Will you read us a bedtime story Gail?

Hi Gail, Thanks for the great bedtime story. :)clap However, I missed it when you read it because I was already in bed. Next time you read to us, could you please read a little earlier, like about 8:00 p.m.

Thanks. :)
