October 2012 Fast Food Toys Round-up

toys from wendy's

October 11, 2012 - The boy collected only a single fast food toy this past month, a Where's Waldo toy from Wendy's.

With that painfully uninteresting narrative out of the way, let's see what's out there in restaurants this month!

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

- Wendy's Kids Meals have Animal Planet toys, with a "Toys'R'Us Holiday Surprize" coming soon.

- McDonald's has Hotel Transylvania in their Happy Meals, with Scooby-Doo Halloween Pails shown as the next promotion.

- Sonic is oddly devoid of details, listing only "Wacky Pack Toys" when you click on the "Wacky Pack Toys" link to see what the toys are this time.

- Carl's Jr. and Hardee's have Extreme Happy Sports toys, with Scribblenauts Unlimited shown as arriving on November 5th at Hardee's and November 7th at Carl's Jr.

- Burger King shows Mattel Games items in their Kids Meals, with Wii U coming soon.

- The Chick-fil-A site lists The Amazing Cow Hero comic books as the goodie in their Kid's Meals. The "kids under 3" item appears to be a Clifford board book. Their schedule shows that the comics should be available until November 17th. From November 19th to January 5th, the promotion will be Franklin books.

No changes from last month at these restaurants:

- Subway Kids Meals have reusable lunch sacks. The sacks now feature Frankenweenie.

- The Arby's web site shows "Re-Arrangers" toys, with "Apples to Apples" card decks coming soon.

- Taco Bell has "Creature Craft" kits. The "kids under 3" item appears to be a Wow Wow Wubbzy book.
