1979 Fruity Cocoa Pebbles Pencil Holder Calendar Kit

I've gotta purge The Flintstones out of my system!! hahahahaha. But seriously, I do like The Flintstones, but I don't like all the little odds-&-end that have collected like dust bunnies around The Cave so cleaning house is a priority and these, along with a bunch of others being posted here, were just sold on eBay a couple of weeks ago.

Here we have two different pencil holders/calendars featuring a head-only Fred and Dino on top of a pencil holder which also has space for a calendar cube underneath. Not having continued with my cereal premium collection I never knew how many of the Flintstones characters were on these holders but a quick search of the internet only showed these two - however there may be more.  Enjoy! Opa Fritz and Oma Bettina

 The Fred holder is 2 3/4" (6.98cm) H and the Dino holder is 3 1/8" (7.93cm) H
Under Fred's base it's marked "HBP Inc 1979 '7' "
Under Dino's base it's marked "HBP Inc 1979 '13' "

The paper cubes (there are two) are meant to be punched out of the surround and assembled into tiny cubes which fit into the opening behind the holders.
