1948 Kellogg's Blandings Dream House - Update

Back on January 2nd of this year we featured this terrific model of Mr. Blanding's Dream House by Kellogg's. The house was of course a direct tie-in to the movie of the same name starring Cary Grant and Myrna Loy. At that time we could only show you the built-up house plus some representative examples from other kits of what would have come with the house. But today we can at last show you exactly what the full kit would have looked like. Unfortunately we don't have an over sized scanner so everything had to be photographed. Enjoy! Fritz and Bettina!

We'll start off with the order form that was found on the boxes of Kellogg's All-Bran cereal. We've shown these before but it's still a good starting point.

The kit is delivered flat in a large illustrated envelope

The end flap contains two additional order coupons to expand your collection

The reverse side is a catalog of available houses

The entire kit consists of: illustrated envelope, two sheets of cardboard with the printed cut-out house, a landscape chart/floorplan, and an illustrated booklet

The landscape chart/floorplan

Illustrated booklet showing interior views of the actual house built for the movie

I did not cut out the house and build it! The photos below are of the built-up house already posted back in January.

    1. Thanx Paul! These Kellogg's kits are a bear to find but I'll be able to post a couple more updates before too long.
