Back when I was a kid in the ’80s, the McDonald’s Happy Meal was the lunch I always hoped for. They had those cool boxes that you could keep and use for carrying your junk after lunch, and more importantly you got fries, burger, and a drink. What we really wanted though were the toys.
Happy Meals aren’t so happy anymore, they come in plain old bags, and the toys are typically pretty lame and you get like three french fries. This isn’t the case in Japan though, their latest Happy Meals come with some sweet Mario Bros. toys.
One of them is a waving Mario that appears to be sitting on a throne of chocolate. There is also a Luigi toy that shoots out of a barrel. It looks pretty awesome. These new toys went on sale in Japan last week. I hope they land in the US too.
