October 2015 Fast Food Toys Round-up

October 23, 2015 - The boy and his grandparents made one trip to McDonald's this past month, with the lone toy brought home being the Hotel Transylvania 2 pull-back motorcycle shown above. Between Minions and Plants vs. Zombies, this next month is going to be an eBay-heavy month.

September 2015 Fast Food Toys Round-up

September 21, 2015 - The boy made one single trip to McDonald's this month, and scored Monster Mutt, one of the Monster Jam trucks. He was so excited by it that he left it in the bag and it sat lost and forgotten until I needed a picture for this month's round-up!

August 2015 Fast Food Toys Round-up

August 26, 2015 - We made several trips to McDonald's in July and August, and collected a few Batman and Monster High toys. Neither license interested the boy, and for our last trip, he decided that he would rather get a 20-piece Chicken McNuggets box than a Happy Meal. (He ate a few at the restaurant and brought the rest home for later - it ended up being about three meals in all.) I'm curious to see if this continues when there are toys he likes.

July 2015 Fast Food Toys Round-up

July 17, 2015 - So far this month, the boy has made it to McDonald's once to get a Minion toy, but I suspect we will be going several more times as well as checking eBay to get a whole set of their toys.

The Minions are everywhere, once again including on Chiquita bananas. According to the MinionsLoveBananas site set up for a movie tie-in contest, there are 32 different stickers. If you are collecting those, you better like bananas as much as the Minions do!

June 2015 Fast Food Toys Round-up

June 16, 2015 - The boy and I managed just a single trip to McDonald's in the past month, and each scored a NERF squirt gun. The "girl version" looks like a pink bow, but shoots water instead of plastic or foam projectiles.

May 2015 Fast Food Toys Round-up

May 22, 2015 - The boy sweet-talked his grandparents into a few trips to Wendy's and McDonald's recently, and scored a few packs of Smart Links and a Skylanders Snap Shot toy. He is saving the Smart Links for when he finds his other Smart Links from past years, so that he can build larger things with them.
