I have the first four issues of Beezer and Topper (the 1990 relaunch). I have the free gift Sonic Boom inside issue 3 but have no idea what the free gifts were in issues 1, 2 and 4. All of these have tape on the cover which suggests it may have been a chewy bar. If it was I will have scoffed them but if not I may have them somewhere. (I have a box of free gifts somewhere in my storage unit but it's buried therein).

I have most of the first fifty issues of the Funday Times which have Bananaman in them. Were they original to this publication or reprints? They are full colour two page spreads. The Funday Times was a 16 page full colour comic given free with the Sunday Times starting on 10 September 1989.

The best I can do on #2 is this image I found. Again, it doesn't look like food, more of a balloon maybe?

Thanks. Looks like a balloon and whistle. I'll have to try and find my box of free gifts.

Hi Steve, if no one beats me to it, when I get home this evening, I'll check and give you exact details of the free gifts in question.

Hi Steve.
The free gifts in the first four issues of the combined Beezer and Topper were as follows
1- The Silly Siren
2 - The Screamin' Demon
3 - The Sonic Boom
4 - The Beezer Strawberry Flavoured Fruit Bar
There was also a free gift in no 5 a Dandy or Beano comic library.

Thanks. Issue two does have a small ad giving details of the gift in issue three but I have that gift. Obviously I removed the gifts in order to be able to store the comics. I think I saw issues 1-4 on eBay this week. Selling together.
