February 2015 Fast Food Toys Round-up

February 20, 2015 - We made one trip to McDonald's last month, hoping to pick up a few of the Sweethearts plush toys, but ended up with a Pete the Cat book instead. The book came with cardboard sunglasses which were quickly lost. The callout on the front of the book leads to a Pete the Cat page on the Harper Collins site - it has an animated version of the book and several activities.

January 16, 2015 - The boy made a single trip to McDonald's last month. He scored a Spy Gear toy and then asked that we get him a set from eBay. When I agreed, he also requested a set of Penguins toys, because he had been paying attention to the commercials. It turns out that the Penguins are really nice toys - they are a periscope, binoculars, a wind-up toy, a water squirter, one that shoots a projectile, and one that launches a fish with a hidden message inside.

December 19, 2014 - It's been a crazy month, so we made no fast food visits at all this past month. Looking back over the past year, the clear choice for our household's favorite fast food premium was The LEGO Movie cup collection from McDonald's. We ended up with a whole set and a few extras, and the cups have really gotten a lot of use.

September 19, 2014 - School has started again, so our fast food trips have again slowed down. The boy didn't make any trips this past month, but I did go to McDonald's to pick up a Hexbug toy. They still had the display up for the previous promotion, so you get two pictures this time around, yay!

If you missed last month's round-up, head back there and scroll to the bottom, as we had several informative comments from anonymous posters. (Thanks, folks!)

August 2014 Fast Food Toys Round-up

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 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.
