General Motors' line-up of HUMMER vehicles features unmistakable design and unparalleled off-road capabilities. Always ready for adventure, HUMMER's iconic vehicle design sparks the imagination of children nationwide. McDonald's Happy Meal and Mighty Kids Meal HUMMER line-up features molded accessories, PVC tires, and the power and performance of HUMMER packed inside eight cool vehicles.

The Metallic Sand H1 is a free wheeling vehicle with a retractable winch - pull out the winch to watch it retract. Rev the Red Flame H1 SUV or the Black H3T forward to send them powering ahead, or pull back the Midnight Blue H3X to watch it steer forward slowly and then pick up speed. The Desert Orange H3 SUV and Slate Blue Metallic H2 SUT feature wind up spare tires and are ready to off-road with a special switch to guide them forward, left or right. The Yellow H2 SUV charges forward when pulled back, and the Laser Blue H2H offers a truly enlightening ride - push the vehicle along to see the hydrogen tank flash green. For added fun, guests can customize their H2H with custom- applied "Hydrogen" stickers. This dynamic collection captures the power, excitement and unique styling that make HUMMER one of the most recognizable vehicles on (and off) the road.
