October 24, 2014 - The boy made a single trip to McDonald's this past month and scored a trick-or-treat bucket from The Book of Life. The buckets are similar to the ones from 2013, with a themed handle and stickers for customizing the bucket.
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 two The Book of Life buckets in their Happy Meals. Or to be more accurate, the Happy Meals come in the buckets. Hee. The next promotion shown is Max Steel and Hello Kitty.
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.
- Captain D's has Amazing Spider-Man 2 items in their kids meals. Thank you to the anonymous commenter who posted this on last month's round-up. I had not heard of Captain D's before!
- The Chick-fil-A site shows "Old School Fun" toys as the goodies in their Kid's Meals. The under 3 toy is a board book of Clifford the Big Red Dog.
- The Wendy's web site has either added back in the toys or I've been missing the link all summer. In either case, the current promotion shown is five different Scooby-Doo toys.
No changes from last month at these restaurants:
- Burger King has brought back their kids meal web site, and they are featuring Dolphin Tale 2 toys at the moment. Last month I had called a national number and asked about upcoming promotions, and this one was not on that list, so I am hoping that the rest of the list is still accurate: Rio 2 in October, and Tom and Jerry toys in December.
- Subway Kids Meals have Star Wars: Rebels drawstring backpacks. There are six available.
- Arby's has revamped their web site and it doesn't seem to show the toy anymore. In the comments in August, an anonymous commenter did my legwork for me and discovered that they had Mr. Potato Head toys, with Mr. Men and Little Miss toys coming in September/October.
- Taco Bell has phased out Kids Meals and their Kids Menu. Most of the items will still be available on their regular menu, but will no longer be marketed as for kids, so really the only difference is that the toys are gone.
