May 2014 Fast Food Toys Round-up


May 14, 2014 - The boy made just one visit to fast food this past month, but scored two Spider-Man movie toys: Spider-Man and Electro action figures. They are articulated only at the shoulders, but do have light-up features. They have buttons on their backs to press and make their heads light up.

We also unearthed this gem from 2011 - a wee Super Soaker from a Burger King promotion. It was hiding out in a box of regular-size squirt guns in our pantry.


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 toys from The Amazing Spider-Man 2 in their Happy Meals. The next promotion shown is a joint promo of Pokemon and American Girl: Isabelle.

Their McPlay app now has free ebooks in it as well as a game. The ebooks are also available on their web site.

- Sonic has some manner of Kidz Bop musical app that they are promoting in their Wacky Pack meals.

- Subway Kids Meals have Maleficient drawstring backpacks.

No changes from last month at these restaurants:

- Burger King has Rio 2 toys in their Kids Meals, with Tom and Jerry toys coming soon.

- The Chick-fil-A site lists five different I Spy! books as the goodies in their Kid's Meals. The "kids under 3" item is a board book.

- The Wendy's web site still does not list the toys at all, but sometimes they mention the toys on their Facebook page.

- Carl's Jr. and Hardee's both now have X-Men: Days of Future Past toys and activities. There are four items shown on the Carl's Jr. site (none are specifically mentioned on the Hardee's site): a Beast figure, a Magneto figure, a ring, and collectible cards. Starting in early June, the promotion changes to Fruit Ninja.

- Like Wendy's, Arby's has revamped their web site and it doesn't seem to show the toy anymore.

- Taco Bell has phased out Kids Meals and their Kids Menu. Most of the items will still be available on their regular menu, but will no longer be marketed as for kids, so really the only difference is that the toys are gone.
