Adult toys in the Happy Meal, guaranteed to make you Grimace.

For the price of one of these, we can hit McDs twice.

It's creepy, that's what's with it. Like on the top of the Happy Meal is printed, "DO YOU READ SUTTER CANE?" and then when you open it, those horrors pop out.

I don't need a so called happy meal to make me happy. For me, it's the McChicken. The best fast food sandwich. I even ask for extra McChicken sauce packets and the staff is so friendly and more than willing to oblige.

One time I asked for McChicken sauce packets and they gave me three. I said, "Wow, three for free!" and the nice friendly McDonald's worker laughed and said, "I'm going to call you 3-for-free!".

Now the staff greets me with "hey it's 3-for-free!" and ALWAYS give me three packets. It's such a fun and cool atmosphere at my local McDonald's restaurant, I go there at least 3 times a week for lunch and a large iced coffee with milk instead of cream, 1-2 times for breakfast on the weekend, and maybe once for dinner when I'm in a rush but want a great meal that is affordable, fast, and can match my daily nutritional needs.

I even dip my fries in McChicken sauce, it's delicious! What a great restaurant.

It's an interesting idea. If you start with a toy that isn't hideous sh*t, you don't know if people are in on the CONCEPT or if they just really like the toy. But with this, you KNOW no one's buying it for the toy.

After we cleaned my daughters bedroom and found boxes of unopened happy meal toys, we skipped the happy meal and just bought her a cheeseburger and fries.  Saved money and the planet.
 
2022-10-01 1:51:40 PM  
If it is for "adults" why does it have a toy? Is that ugly crap some sort of meme or comicbook reference?

went thru a similar phase with my little ones.

McD's might do better to make it easier to promote the whole set of toys online vs. having to visit stores and hopes they have the toy in stock.

Example: McD's has 8 toys from the upcoming Disney movie for happy meals the next cycle. From my experience, each store gets a whole box of #1 of the 8 for a week; no variety. Next week a box of a different one (or sometimes the same one) from the set is available. Now my kids have four versions of the same toy and are sad with the experience.

Maybe try two toys are available in stores only, 6 are available online with a coupon towards your next purchase.

/No longer buy happy meals either since it is mostly a disappointment

McDonalds is the largest toy distributor IN THE WORLD.

This news originated from a cryptic Facebook post from McDonald's in which the fast-food company said, "one day you ordered a Happy Meal for the last time and you didn't even know it." I'm not sure if the McDonald's social media person intended for folks to take this as some kind of threat, but the fact that it just left its message at that was ominous. It turns out McDonald's wasn't getting existential about the fragility of the human body, but the longevity of one's inner child. Also foreboding, but suitable for marketing purposes I suppose.

JFC, the author is a farking moron.

And nice of them to explain why the two sets of eyes. Holt farking shiat, if you're going to write a farking article about the toys in McDonald's Happy Meals, they write about the farikng toys!! Seriously, a total piece of shait as far as articles go. Is Kotaku the Hot Topic of fandom websites?

If you patronize McDonald's, you make poor life choices.  If you're an adult who wants a happy meal, you're even more pathetic.  Grow the eff up

From another article:

"including Grimace, Hamburglar and Birdie - each created in the image of Cactus Buddy, the four-eyed smiley-face mascot for Cactus Plant Flea Market."

So Cactus Buddy has four eyes for some crazy reason and now they've spread the crazy.
And people get paid to come up with this shiat.

Apropos of nothing, Egg Mcmuffin may be the healthiest actually popular item McDonald's sells. English muffin, one egg, slice of cheese, slice of ham. I get it once a week or so on the way to work, costs me $1 thanks to the app. Where else am I going to get breakfast for a buck without having to plan ahead?
