August 2014 Fast Food Toys Round-up

toys

August 22, 2014 - The boy made two trips to Wendy's this past month, but has zero interest in the two Kung Fu Panda toys he got with his food. He has already let me know to hand them out at Halloween.

I bought a set of Guardians of the Galaxy drawstring backpacks from eBay because I wanted all six but I don't like Subway enough to eat there six times in a month. The bags are larger and nicer than I thought they would be. The fronts have pictures from the movie, while the backs have line drawings of the characters.

July 22, 2014 - This seems to be a pattern - the boy made just one visit to fast food in the past month, choosing to get his chicken nuggets out of the freezer at home instead of in a retaurant. He came back from his one McDonald's trip with a Mario Kart 8 toy.

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.
