The history of the Tazos
In 1994, Sabritas launched a collection of circular plastics with animated characters, one came free inside each bag of chips. They were a novelty for the time!
It is believed that the original idea arose in the seventeenth century, in a Japanese game called Menko, which consisted of putting a square or circular card on the ground and the other player throwing his card in the air to make the card at rest flip. . Between the 20s and 30s, in Hawaii, a similar game emerged but with bottle caps. The years passed and in the early 90s, a teacher introduced the game to her students, the success was such that the popularity of the game quickly spread throughout the United States.
The first Tazos to arrive in Mexico were from the Looney Tunes and there were 4 types:
- Los Tazos, with scenes from the series (40).
- The Super Tazos, who only brought a character up to half length (20).
- The Mega Tazos, with a character and his name (20).
- And the Master Tazos, with the characters dressed very rappers (20).
- Then came the GiraTazos, which had a border in the center to rotate.
In 1996, all these characters became even more popular with the premiere of Space Jam: Game of the Century, tape that you can enjoy thanks to the new TELCEL Max Play Plan where you have Netflix + Claro video, in addition to unlimited social networks, Double Gigas and the connectivity of #TelcelLaMejorRed with the highest Coverage.
