Unhappy Meal

I think McDonalds deserves whatever fate has in store, if only because the Happy Meals toys have become unbelievably lame. You now get these bits of larger toys, apparently to encourage you to go back for the rest of the toy. So, if the toy is a car, a garage and a ramp, you might get the ramp. On your next visit, you’ll probably get a fragment of an unrelated toy.

Winston is three going on 16 -- we don’t need more McDonalds advocacy in the house anyway, even if this promotional theory worked, which it doesn’t.

Oh, at last night’s visit, apparently they were out of the normal toys because we received the "toddler" toy - a car with a rattle in it. 11 month old Normie liked it, at least. You want a good toy - go to Carl’s Jr. if you are fortunate enough to live near one. I can’t speak to Burger King’s toys, since we don’t have a BK nearby that I’m aware of, but they were advertising Simpson’s related merchandise, and that can’t be all bad.
