October 2016 Fast Food Toys Round-up

October 24, 2016 - We didn't eat out much since the last update, but the boy did score a Talking Tom figure at McDonald's. A few years back, he loved the Talking Tom apps, but he didn't seem especially interested in this toy. It's a cute figure, so I think he has just outgrown the license.

July 11, 2016 - For June, we made a single trip to McDonald's and picked up a Skylanders Superchargers toy. We don't play Skylanders, so this elicited a solid "meh" from the boy, although it is a pretty nice little toy.
