Reaching it's hey day in the 1950's the brand was brought out by Goodman Fielder who moved production to Australia in 2006 under the brand name Uncle Toby's.

"The flemings factory in Gore now specialises in stock feed for horses and calves, and continues to market the product with the Sergeant Dan name and logo."

Does anyone have a list of the colours that the Creamoata glass cereal dishes came in.
I have blue and green - I think there was white, pink and yellow. Any other colours known?
Would like to collect the whole set!
