You can also look back at the winners from past years.
December 19, 2014 - It's been a crazy month, so we made no fast food visits at all this past month. Looking back over the past year, the clear choice for our household's favorite fast food premium was The LEGO Movie cup collection from McDonald's. We ended up with a whole set and a few extras, and the cups have really gotten a lot of use.
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 Spy Gear and Flutterbye toys in their Happy Meals. The next promotion shown appears to be books, including Pete the Cat. Our boy loves the Spy Gear toys, so I think an eBay purchase is in my near future.
The McDonald's McPlay app now has free ebooks in it as well as a game. The ebooks are also available on their web site.
December 19, 2014 - Listed below are the toy (and child-related) recalls from this week; these links go to the official announcements on the Consumer Product Safety Commission web site.
