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.
