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.
Let's see what's out there in restaurants this month! (More after the jump)
A quick check of the web sites for the more popular fast food restaurants reveals the following:
- McDonald's has lenticular cups from The LEGO Movie in their Happy Meals. The next promotion shown is toys from Mr. Peabody & Sherman. Their McPlay app now has free ebooks in it as well as a game. The ebooks are also available on their web site.
