August 2015 Fast Food Toys Round-up

August 26, 2015 - We made several trips to McDonald's in July and August, and collected a few Batman and Monster High toys. Neither license interested the boy, and for our last trip, he decided that he would rather get a 20-piece Chicken McNuggets box than a Happy Meal. (He ate a few at the restaurant and brought the rest home for later - it ended up being about three meals in all.) I'm curious to see if this continues when there are toys he likes.

Let's see what's out there in restaurants this month! (More after the jump)

A quick check of the web sites for the more popular fast food restaurants reveals the following:

- McDonald's has a joint promotion of Monster High and Batman Unlimited toys in their Happy Meals. The next promotion shown is a joint promotion of Hello Kitty school supplies and Monster Jam trucks.

July 2015 Fast Food Toys Round-up

July 17, 2015 - So far this month, the boy has made it to McDonald's once to get a Minion toy, but I suspect we will be going several more times as well as checking eBay to get a whole set of their toys.

The Minions are everywhere, once again including on Chiquita bananas. According to the MinionsLoveBananas site set up for a movie tie-in contest, there are 32 different stickers. If you are collecting those, you better like bananas as much as the Minions do!

May 22, 2015 - The boy sweet-talked his grandparents into a few trips to Wendy's and McDonald's recently, and scored a few packs of Smart Links and a Skylanders Snap Shot toy. He is saving the Smart Links for when he finds his other Smart Links from past years, so that he can build larger things with them.

April 2015 Fast Food Toys Round-up

April 24, 2015 - Another month with no trips to get fast food. We did, however, go down the cereal aisle at the grocery store several times! There are lots of big movies coming out soon, which means many movie tie-in promotions on cereal boxes. On your next trip to get groceries, take a few extra moments to check it out - there are offers for free movie tickets as well as freebies packed into some of the boxes.
