June 2016 Fast Food Toys Round-up

June 3, 2016 - School is finally out, so now we have a bit more time for small-scale "adventures" like leaving the house to go get toys at McDonald's. The boy scored one Angry Birds movie toy and decided that we'll get the rest on eBay.

May 2016 Fast Food Toys Round-up

May 6, 2016 - April was strangely busy, so we skipped eating at fast food restaurants and bought the boy a set of McDonald's plush Emoji toys from eBay. There are 16 in the set, so this was definitely the easier and less expensive option.

February 2016 Fast Food Toys Round-up

February 8, 2016 - January and early February brought us two trips to Wendy's and two "Build Your Creativity" toys. The giraffe and robot use pieces that we have seen in their kids meals before, so if you can remember to keep tucking them all into one storage spot, eventually you'll have enough to build something large.

September 21, 2015 - The boy made one single trip to McDonald's this month, and scored Monster Mutt, one of the Monster Jam trucks. He was so excited by it that he left it in the bag and it sat lost and forgotten until I needed a picture for this month's round-up!

August 2015 Fast Food Toys Round-up

August 26, 2015 - We made several trips to McDonald's in July and August, and collected a few Batman and Monster High toys. Neither license interested the boy, and for our last trip, he decided that he would rather get a 20-piece Chicken McNuggets box than a Happy Meal. (He ate a few at the restaurant and brought the rest home for later - it ended up being about three meals in all.) I'm curious to see if this continues when there are toys he likes.
