August 2014 Fast Food Toys Round-up

toys

August 22, 2014 - The boy made two trips to Wendy's this past month, but has zero interest in the two Kung Fu Panda toys he got with his food. He has already let me know to hand them out at Halloween.

I bought a set of Guardians of the Galaxy drawstring backpacks from eBay because I wanted all six but I don't like Subway enough to eat there six times in a month. The bags are larger and nicer than I thought they would be. The fronts have pictures from the movie, while the backs have line drawings of the characters.

July 2014 Fast Food Toys Round-up

July 22, 2014 - This seems to be a pattern - the boy made just one visit to fast food in the past month, choosing to get his chicken nuggets out of the freezer at home instead of in a retaurant. He came back from his one McDonald's trip with a Mario Kart 8 toy.

May 2014 Fast Food Toys Round-up

May 14, 2014 - The boy made just one visit to fast food this past month, but scored two Spider-Man movie toys: Spider-Man and Electro action figures. They are articulated only at the shoulders, but do have light-up features. They have buttons on their backs to press and make their heads light up.

We also unearthed this gem from 2011 - a wee Super Soaker from a Burger King promotion. It was hiding out in a box of regular-size squirt guns in our pantry.

March 21, 2014 - We've done a fair bit of traveling in the past month, and from McDonald's, the boy scored another lenticular cup from The LEGO Movie and two Mr. Peabody and Sherman toys, as well two of the mini Hasbro Games from Wendy's.

February 2014 Fast Food Toys Round-up

toys

February 12, 2014 - Right now, the premiums in the McDonald's Happy Meals are cups from The LEGO Movie. As you can almost see in these pictures, the cups are lenticular. They are also fairly sturdy, so it might be worth getting a full set via eBay. Speaking of eBay, the boy did talk me into a set of last month's Adventure Time toys and a set of the Build-A-Bear toys from December.

January 2014 Fast Food Toys Round-up

toys

January 20, 2014 - We were hermits in December, but the Adventure Time toys at McDonald's lured us out... and then the toys were delayed! The boy was so mad about it that he didn't even want to stay and eat there on that visit. The second time we checked for the Adenture Time toys, he had settled down a bit and accepted the Ice Age toy and played in the playroom. He's caught on to eBay now, so after getting the first Jake toy, he requested that I just "order the rest" from eBay.

December 18, 2013 - November saw just a single visit to McDonald's, and the boy scored a blue Build-A-Bear. eBay came through with the other Angry Birds Star Wars trick-or-treat buckets, together in a single lot with a few Angry Birds plush toys which were assimilated into the Borg Collective of his plush toys.

November 2013 Fast Food Toys Round-up

toys

November 15, 2013 - McDonald's had trick-or-treat buckets in October, so the boy informed us that we were going. Period. No discussion allowed. He was happy with the Angry Birds Star Wars bucket he got, but quietly let me know later on that I would need to "go online and order the other two" for him. Another visit to McDonald's after Halloween resulted in a cute little book and a bookmark.
