Jealous: Myself

Ever since my recent post on McDonald’s Happy Meals I have been pining for some of the old toys. Thanks to reader Pasquinel for turning me on to Kathy’s Fast Food Toys, “Your #1 source for fast food toys!” Oh my gawd!!! Did you click that link and see all the goodies she’s got over there?

They have toys from McDonald’s, Taco Bell, KFC, Burger King, Hardee’s, Denny’s, Whataburger and tons more. They have got the most awesome collection….so much so that the first thing I asked them was how much for the whole thing 🙂 Unfortunately they wouldn’t sell me the entire array (some they don’t part with) but I did manage to pick me up some of my favorites.

I was so giddy when I was looking through everything. I was like a kid in a toy store….and I must say Kathy (and Bill) are like Mr. & Mrs. Claus. They’ve made my dreams come true. Check out some of these bad boys. How awesome is the Workout McNugget Buddy? (I think he’s my favorite)

As you can see I got the Foodchangeables, McDino Changeables, Super Mario Bros. 3 characters, Bambi characters, Halloween McNugget Buddies (so awesome!), regular McNugget Buddies, TailSpin characters, Tiny Toon Adventures characters, Hook characters and so much more. They even threw in some surprise ones I didn’t order!

I have a lot more that I don’t have pictures of only because they’re still in their original packaging (like the Halloween McNugget Buddies). Honestly I have to thank Pasquinel, Kathy & Bill so much. This is one of the coolest things I’ve ever gotten. I also can now say I have an offical collection of vintage McDonald’s Happy Meal toys! I’m hoping that some of you do the same an get a few relics from your childhood. If you do, please post pictures.

  1. Ha! I’m not too early this time! 😛 That is awesome @Bear! I remember a lot of those toys. Looks like you’ll be having a lot of fun playing with your past lol. I hope you enjoy them!

    I liked the Taco Bell Star Wars line of toys back when the special edition movies were released. And don’t forget the Holy Grail of Happy Meal toys, the Inspector Gadget series. A complete set is really valuable today.

  3. @Erin Brooks – Oh I certainly will…I already have been playing with ’em 🙂

    @rob – Ummm…okay….

    @pav777 – Dude, she’s got ’em!

    Whoa, that is too awesome! I loved the Food Changeables so much. I clearly remember having ALL of the California Raisins toys from Hardee’s, too. We lived really close to a Hardee’s when I was a kid, and my dad would often run down to get us cinnamon raisin biscuits for breakfast on the weekends. Hardee’s also did a promotion for the Apollo 13 movie back when it came out. With each kids meal, you’d get a packet of Pog milk caps and a section of spaceship that you could connect with other pieces to make a whole ship. Weird movie choice to tie in with kids meals, but I thought it was cool because I was working there at the time. I can’t believe how many Pogs we stole from the manager’s office while he wasn’t looking…

  5. That is awesome. Thanks for sharing the link.

    Bear,

    Glad I provided you with a source for your nostalgia 🙂

    Somewhat related but you ever notice how the packaged cereal toy seems like a dying tradition these days? It seemed so much more prevalent back then.

    My happy meals scavenging years were between the late ’80s and early ’90s. I distinctly remember owning the following:

    My happy meals scavenging years were between the late ’80s and early ’90s. The red Mario was definitely my favorite. The jump strength on that thing was so insane that it might well be classified as child hazardous in today’s paranoid society.

  8. @Adam Bomb – Dude I love pogs!!!! I just bought some on eBay cause I wanted play them again…it’d been awhile.

    @Greg – Yessir. I got me some o’ those Foodchangables! 🙂

    @Pasquinel – Mario’s one of my favs too. I was playing with him last night…he does bounce super high 🙂

    I agree with you on the cereal premiums….what’s up with that?

    Bear – these brought back so many memories, but not because I ever collected them or even took my kids to McDs for them but my sister was addicted to McDs and had buckets of the toys for her kids. When they outgrew them she gave them all to me. We are talking 100’s. Sigh. Wish I had kept them when my kids grew out of playing with them, so cute. Alas, I was really tired of stepping on them.

    You are so right about the cereal premiums. I can’t remember the last one I saw. 🙂 Best part of being the first one to open a new box of cereal growing up!

    I do enjoy looking at all the toys…I have over 125 FILE BOXES of fast food toys and boxes/bags. Collected for almost 30 years now, but I ran out of room and had to store them in my daughters basement so I never get to seem them anymore. I was so upset when my ex through away the round top boxes from the first few campaigns. The artwork was so wild on them. They do have a way of accumulating. Some of those early sets were very tough to find and I still am missing one here and there. And the regional were very exciting to find in town. I remember I went to one garage sale and while I was digging in their toys I asked…”So how did you enjoy St Louis” They were so shocked to know I figured out where they moved from by the toys in the box.
