September 2015 Fast Food Toys Round-up

September 21, 2015 - The boy made one single trip to McDonald's this month, and scored Monster Mutt, one of the Monster Jam trucks. He was so excited by it that he left it in the bag and it sat lost and forgotten until I needed a picture for this month's round-up!

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.

July 2015 Fast Food Toys Round-up

July 17, 2015 - So far this month, the boy has made it to McDonald's once to get a Minion toy, but I suspect we will be going several more times as well as checking eBay to get a whole set of their toys.

The Minions are everywhere, once again including on Chiquita bananas. According to the MinionsLoveBananas site set up for a movie tie-in contest, there are 32 different stickers. If you are collecting those, you better like bananas as much as the Minions do!

He is saving the Smart Links for when he finds his other Smart Links from past years, so that he can build larger things with them.

April 24, 2015 - Another month with no trips to get fast food. We did, however, go down the cereal aisle at the grocery store several times! There are lots of big movies coming out soon, which means many movie tie-in promotions on cereal boxes. On your next trip to get groceries, take a few extra moments to check it out - there are offers for free movie tickets as well as freebies packed into some of the boxes.

February 20, 2015 - We made one trip to McDonald's last month, hoping to pick up a few of the Sweethearts plush toys, but ended up with a Pete the Cat book instead. The book came with cardboard sunglasses which were quickly lost. The callout on the front of the book leads to a Pete the Cat page on the Harper Collins site - it has an animated version of the book and several activities.

January 16, 2015 - The boy made a single trip to McDonald's last month. He scored a Spy Gear toy and then asked that we get him a set from eBay. When I agreed, he also requested a set of Penguins toys, because he had been paying attention to the commercials. It turns out that the Penguins are really nice toys - they are a periscope, binoculars, a wind-up toy, a water squirter, one that shoots a projectile, and one that launches a fish with a hidden message inside.
