McHAPPY ME

Just before Christmas, Mcdonalds brought out retro Happy Meal Toys.

Our daughter works at McDonalds while she goes through college (2nd child to do so) and so I asked her for Christmas if she could buy me a few

I THINK I HAVE MOST OF THEM!

The little nuggets where the ones I was most after, even though I don’t remember them all, they scream nostalgic McDee to me, the tamagotchi was disappointing lol

Grimace and the Hamburgler are pretty awesome too!

Who remembers any of these? The bags indicated they were from the 80s and 90s.

I actually needle pointed her an ugly McDonald’s sweater ornament to wrap with her Christmas $

I also stitched up a Mcdee gift card holder to be part of my white elephant gift.

The gift card was wrapped as part of this metal Archie Mcphee tray that I found brand new thrifting.

If I had a wish for certain ones to come back it would be the Muppet Babies, I currently own some of the original ones, as a young teen I collected the entire collecrtion, they sat on a wooden shelf my dad build, but like most of my childhood toys, they got lost throughout life.

I have to admit Burger King seems to have had and still have some of the cooler toys.

Hubz ordered on eBay once the entire BK set of Simpsons watches.

And I will never forget being pregnant with our 4th child and eating a BK kids meal most work days at lunch to collect the sponge bob toys for our oldest for Christmas.

While snapping these photos I took one of this mug my second youngest gifted me this Christmas, it prompted me to google McDee and Bk Nightmare Before Xmas toys.

I see some cool BK watches from the films release in 1993, going to have to keep my eyes peeled for these.
