Minions have invaded McDonalds all around the world. Starting this month, you’ll be able to snag up 8 adorable Despicable Me 2 toys. They are available in Canada, Philippines, Indonesia, USA, UK, Austria, Australia, Brazil, Panama, Mexico, France, Switzerland, Denmark, Romania, Portugal, Latvia, Colombia, Chile, Uruguay, Guatemala, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Thailand, and Taiwan. Perhaps there is more, but I have no clue.
It took myself, my sister and a few friends to get our hands on at least 4 of them. Then…someone had to take a trip to the states to find more to complete the set. We were a bit obsessive, but it’s the hunt and chase that’s the most fun. We could have easily bought it the set off eBay for $20 but that’s just cheating. Even people on Facebook are coordinating how to get certain toys and giving each other tips on which locations to go to. I haven’t been this excited about McDonald Toys since the 90s.
Happy Meals have changed since I was a kid. They used paper bags and had a limited amount of options for your meal. These days, you have more “healthier” options (kinda, not really).
Choice of Entree:
- Chicken McNuggets (4 pcs)
- Chicken Snack Wrap
- Grilled Cheese
Choice of side:
- Mini Fries
- Small Fries
- Apple Slices with Caramel Dip
Choice of Drink:
- 1% White Milk
- Chocolate Milk
- Child-sized Soft Drink
All meals come with a toy and yogurt. All for $3.99 before tax. No age limit too. I’m a big kid and I totally deserve a Happy Meal once in a while.
The tiny fries are so cute in the little container. It’s really a meal meant for little kids.
This location didn’t have the minion toys which sucked, but I still liked my meal. If you get toys on their own, it’s about $2. If you’re on the hunt for the minions, I think it’ll save your health if you buy the toy without the meal.
The best part of the nuggets is the infamous boot-shaped nugget. It still makes me wonder why they ever decided to make it look like that.
There’s even a website just for Happy Meals: http://www.happymeal.com
What crazy thing did you do to acquire those minion toys?
