November 6, 2012 - The boy collected just one fast food toy this past month, but it's a nice one - a Mario figure from Burger King. The paint job is pretty nice for the size. It has more articulation than I was expecting: simple twists at both shoulders and hips.

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:

- McDonald's has Young Justice and Littlest Pet Shop toys in their Happy Meals, with Rise of the Guardians shown as the next promotion.

- Sonic has Farm Tot Buddies listed.

- Carl's Jr. and Hardee's have Scribblenauts Unlimited toys, with Hotel Transylvania toys coming in late December.

Holiday Ornament at Jack in the Box

Nutcracker Jack Marches into Jack in the Box® for Holiday Fundraiser

Just in time for the 120th anniversary of the Nutcracker Ballet, sale of holiday ornament raises money and awareness for Big Brothers Big Sisters

SAN DIEGO, Oct. 18, 2012 -- Jack in the Box® restaurants today launched a holiday fundraiser benefitting Big Brothers Big Sisters. For just $1, plus tax, guests may purchase a limited-edition Nutcracker Jack ornament with net proceeds benefiting the youth-mentoring organization. (Available at participating Jack in the Box restaurants while supplies last.)

Although 120 years have passed since Tchaikovsky premiered his now-famous "March of the Toy Soldiers," the score remains as beloved today as the toy soldiers popularized in the Nutcracker Ballet. Rosy cheeked and wearing a red shako adorned with decorative bronze lacing, the Nutcracker Jack ornament is pre-drilled on the bottom and fashioned with a braided loop on top, offering flexibility for display on a vehicle antenna or Christmas tree.

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.

September 6, 2012 - The boy scored just one additional McDonald's SpongeBob SquarePants toy last month. Don't feel bad for him, though, as he hit the jackpot in the form of the K'NEX Angry Birds sets during a trip to Toys'R'Us. So he's getting new toys... he's just not eating fast food to "earn" them.

Let's see what's out there in restaurants this month!

- Wendy's Kids Meals have Where's Waldo toys, with Animal Planet items coming soon.

August 2012 Fast Food Toys Round-up

August 5, 2012 - The boy saw a McDonald's commercial last month and decided that he needed the Ice Age toys, even though he's never actually sat all the way through any of the Ice Age movies. The service at our closest McDonald's is less than stellar, so after getting him one toy there, I bought a set via eBay and thought that was the end of it, but he convinced his grandparents to take him to McDonald's two more times. Lots of Ice Age toys in our house now - I can't complain, because the toys are actually quite nice.

The new promo at McDonald's is SpongeBob SquarePants, which the boy again learned about from a commercial, so we stopped on the way to the Bronco's Saturday Scrimmage, and he got a cute Gary toy. You push it along a flat surface and his eye stalks move.

July 2012 Fast Food Toys Round-up

July 7, 2012 - Another month of bad consumerism on our part... the boy had fast food just three times since the last Fast Food Toys Round-Up: once at Wendy's for breakfast (so no toy), McDonald's (Gia from Madagascar 3), and another trip to McDonald's when his grandparents took him (a Pokemon something, now lost in his room).

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:

June 2012 Fast Food Toys Round-up

June 2, 2012 - We must be bad consumers, as we haven't gotten any fast food since last month's Fast Food Toys Round-Up. Apparently we are pretty good at hoarding, though, as this week the boy and I stumbled across several fast food toys from 2008 when cleaning out our spare bedroom. The more interesting pieces in the stash were a Barrel of Monkeys (with five monkeys and a cardboard barrel) from Wendy's and a Robin from McDonald's, part of the promo for the LEGO: Batman video game.

Update: May 6 - RTM reader Jeff posted in the forum that he found where the Avengers fast food toys are, but they are not in the United States. Jeff shared these two links:

- ComicBookMovie.com reports that in the Philippines, Petron Corporation has Avengers figures as cup toppers, and that in Brazil, the fast food chain Habib's has Avengers toys. (The article has some pretty neat images and a video clip of commercial for the Habib toys.)
