Do people still go out of their way to get Happy Meal toys? This was a big deal for me growing up, and I still have the awesome transforming food set that dropped in the late 80s or early 90s. In fact, my kid plays with those incredible toys.
Well, some trips to McDonald’s may be in our future thanks to this latest promotion. The house of the Big Mac will offer a limited run of Super Mario-themed toys in their Happy Meals until May 22, 2017. Here’s a shot of the toys on offer.
