December 2013 Fast Food Toys Round-up

toys

December 18, 2013 - November saw just a single visit to McDonald's, and the boy scored a blue Build-A-Bear. eBay came through with the other Angry Birds Star Wars trick-or-treat buckets, together in a single lot with a few Angry Birds plush toys which were assimilated into the Borg Collective of his plush toys.

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 Furby Boom and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles toys in their Happy Meals. The next promotion shown is Adventure Time and Paul Frank. Their McPlay app now has free ebooks in it as well as a game. The ebooks are also available on their web site.

THE 12 DAYS OF GRAYSKULL!

December 2013 - As the Castle Grayskull playsets from Mattel begin to arrive at the doorsteps of good little boys and girls all over the world (by mail of course - those things are way too big for even Santa's magical bag!!), the Four Horsemen are putting up a daily feature chronicling the creation of this massive project!

Over the next week or so, "Desk Jockey: Twelve Days of Grayskull" will follow Four Horsemen sculptor Eric Treadaway on his journey from adding that first hunk of clay all the way through the final finished behemoth of a sculpture that eventually went into production and landed at your door.
