May 2014 Fast Food Toys Round-up

toys

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.

A quick check of the web sites for the more popular fast food restaurants reveals the following:
