(Gawker)   United Kingdom McDonald's will no longer include toys in their Happy Meals. They will instead be replaced with pieces of paper bound together at the spine with words written on them. What is this madness?   (gawker.com) divider line 20
    More: Cool, Mcdonald, Dickensian, non-fiction books

Cythraul: Kid 1, "Hey!  I got a copy of '50 Shades of Gray' in my Happy Meal!  What did you get?"
Kid 2, "Awww, I got 'Atlas Shrugged."'


I ordered a copy of 'Atlas Shrugged' off of Amazon once. All I got was a box with a note inside telling me to grow the fark up.

Chik-fil-a always had books, I begged my mom to take me there as a kid because I didn't want the toys from McDonald's or Burger King.

Now I wonder if they had subliminal messages hidden in them.

This is a play by the print companies to cling to cling to some shred of enforced relevancy.

Books > toys. Really.

From the kid's perspective, there's simply more in the book. With a toy, you play with it until you get bored, and then it's done. With a book, you first enjoy the story, then you can enjoy acting out the story with friends, then you can enjoy imagining how the story might have gone differently with minor changes, then you can act out those changes, then crossover fanfiction happens, then you act out that...and so forth. And some nonfiction kids' books are explicitly about how to make your own toys and games from simple household items. It's way more bang for your buck in terms of fun.

From the parent, teacher or any other adult's perspective, a kid playing with a toy makes noise. A kid reading, provided the kid is past the age of needing to sound out words, does not.

Books are, therefore, superior in every way.

I buy my 4 yr old nephew books all of the time. He has over 300 of them. When I take him to McDonald's, I want a damn toy. It's tradition. I got them as a kid, so should he. It's the fun of the happy meal, it sure ain't for the food.

/nephew prefers books to toys anyway, it's all about me here
