Mego Meet 2015: June 5-6

Aw Yeah Mego Meet 2015!
Skokie Here We Come!

Skokie, IL – December 12, 2014 – Mego Museum in conjunction with Aw Yeah Comics is pleased to announce that Mego Meet 2015 will be held June 5th and 6th at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Chicago – North Shore Conference Center. Registration information for vendors and attendees will be posted on the Mego Meet 2015 page at megomuseum.com in the coming weeks.

For the past ten years, the annual Mego Meet made its home in Wheeling, WV. It was clear after Mego Meet 10 that maximum density had been surpassed in Wheeling and that a change of venue was in order. The move to Skokie, IL. will allow for easy access for those travelling by plane, as well as provide a myriad of options for family entertainment. The facilities at DoubleTree offer award-winning guest rooms and event space for presenters, vendors, and attendees.

November 2014 Fast Food Toys Round-up

toys

November 24, 2014 - We made just one trip to McDonald's this past month, where the boy snagged a Max Steel plane with a
missile launcher and I picked up a Hello Kitty toy that opens to reveal a hair barrette you can wear.

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 Max Steel and Hello Kitty toys in their Happy Meals. The next promotion shown is Penguins of Madagascar.

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.

- Sonic has Batman toys that they are promoting in their Wacky Pack meals.
