CEC Promotional Tokens


OVERVIEW

The last group of Chuck E. Cheese tokens includes promotional tokens given out to advertise the restaurant. These could be used to redeem a certain amount of game tokens (sometimes requiring a specific food purchase.) Also included in the promotional tokens are the 2006 tokens advertising the movie, "Over the Hedge." These tokens were intended to be used by guests in the arcade games during their visit.

Tokens P01–P04 were not corporate issued. They were produced by franchises, and given out to children celebrating their birthday, and to students at schools. All of them were produced around the same time (roughly 1982–1989), and were used in relatively small geographical areas. P01 was used in Portland, OR, and P02 was used in southern California. It is thought that P02 and P03 were used somewhere in the Midwest. These tokens were produced in very low numbers (compared to corporate issued tokens), so they are very rare.

 


DESIGNS
These tokens utilize portraits from the "Adult Mouse" and "Juvenile Mouse" designs. Each of them contains specific information regarding their intended use.
