See every single toy that McDonald's is resurrecting for the Happy Meal's 40th anniversary
This promotion has parents written all over it
Nov 06, 2019
Starting tomorrow, parents will have extra incentive to pull into the McDonald’s drive-through. Recently, the company announced that for the Happy Meal’s 40th anniversary, it will be resurrecting some of the Meal’s classic toys—including a few that Mom and Dad may have enjoyed (or longed for) when they were the little ones.
Here, we’ve gathered images of every single toy that the Golden Arches will be bringing back in what it's calling "Surprise Happy Meals," including 1988’s McNugget Buddies (Cowboy, Mail Carrier and Fireman); McDonald’s hamburger and Happy Meal box Changeables—the Golden Arches’ own take on Transformers that saw its goods turn into dinosaurs (1989, 1991); "Space Jam" Bugs Bunny (1996); Ty Teenie Beanie Babies’ Patti the Platypus (an all-time Happy Meal best-seller from 1996); U.S.-exclusive Disney toys from "101 Dalmations" (1997) and "Sorcerer's Apprentice" (2002) and McDonaldland characters Grimace (1990) and The Hamburglar (1995).
McDonald’s also created an infographic (below) of all the items returning globally, which reveals some entertaining bits of history—did you know that Grimace originally had four arms?
The toys will be in Happy Meals in 90 countries around the world from November 4 through November 11, while supplies last.
