  1. 1. I remember having a crate full of happy meal toys when I was little. I always liked the little barbies.

    2. honey all the way!

  2. Favorite happy meal toy is the Toy Story Little Green Man which has the eyes pop out when you squeeze its belly.

    1. My son gave me the Toy Story Little Green Alien. He got it when he helped clean out a house and gave it to me since he knows how much I love those aliens!

  3. Your favorite Chicken McNuggets sauce of all time: for Mc Nuggets, its the buffalo but for burgers, its the hot mustard. food at Mc D without either one of these is just bleh

  4. My favourite Happy Meal toys were the foods that turned into dinosaurs/monsters. I just rebought a few from our local used game store and I’m still on the lookout for more. 🙂

    HA! I just remembered we got a copy of The Addams Family Values from McDonald’s. It wasn’t Happy Meal related though. I think you got it for free with a special combo meal. Jesus, I used to LOVE the horrible rap song in that movie.

  5. My boyfriend and I still have a huge bag of Happy Meal toys. My most prized one is Pterri the Pterodactyl from Pee Wee’s Playhouse.

  6. Changeables. Fries variety. Best toy ever to be coated in secondhand McDonalds grease.

  7. My favorite toys are the Barbies I have everyone and when they have more I always have to get them!

  8. McNugget Buddies!! OMG, I can’t believe those popped into my head.

    and a ROBBLE ROBBLE for good measure!

  9. I’m with you on the Smores pie by the way. My sister got one in Minneapolis and she said it was heavenly. Alas, I am out here in the Pacific ocean.

    Also, to enter the contest, I was addicted to the pokemon toys when they had them way back in the 90s. And the my little ponies. What a combo.

  10. Best happy meal car: Those toy cars that were noisy and you rolled them back and forth and let them go and they went fast (by a kid’s standard)

  11. 1. Furbys. The little mini furbys. Furbies? Furbys? Whatever. I collected near every single one of those bastards. My Mcdonalds held trading parties.

    I also have fond memories of some from Halloween from really long ago. I remember something like little chicken nugget guys you put into halloween costumes.

    2. Sweet and Sour= Best for dipping a mcdouble in and dipping fries in. Also decent for nuggets. Honey “sauce” for nuggets alone.

    3. Hawaii McDonalds, I don’t even have 200 words for you. Shameful. Don’t deprive the poor Hawaiians of that deliciousness.


  12. I haven’t had a McNugget for years but I always chose the sweet and sour sauce. I’d like to try the Hot Habanero sauce!

  13. My favorite Happy Meal toys were the Batman toys I got about 2 years ago… yes, as a 22 year-old. I still have them displayed in my living room. I was impressed that I visited maybe 4 times during their run and managed to get a unique toy every time.
    I am a nerd.

  14. I honestly can’t remember a favorite Happy Meal toy, and I don’t eat sauce with Chicken McNuggets, and I’m NOT writing to corp, so I guess I have to limp in on this with

    “robble robble.”

  15. My favorite happy meal toy were those robot dogs, forgot what they were called. I had the actual toy which was a much bigger more functual robot dog, and would pretend the happy meal toys were it’s puppy’s. I practically had a robot dog army. Luckily they didn’t fall into the wrong hands. Instead they fell in my cereal.

  16. No toy will ever beat the pokeball that came with a “gold” plated Pokemon card inside!

  17. Best sauce ever has to be the sweet and sour. It’s the perfect compliment to a McD’s nugget.


  18. Honey mustard–at least that’s what I remember (haven’t had McNuggets since I turned vegetarian 19 years ago… but I HAVE had other eats at McD’s)!

  19. I would love to win this gift card so I can get McD’s on the fly – robble robble. My fav sauce is sweet and sour, and I worked at Mc Donald’s in the 1980s.

  20. My Favorite Happy Meal Toy – The Chicken McNuggets that are dressed up for Halloween. Each McNugget came with a top and bottom that you could mix and match. Proud to say, mine are still rocking on a book shelf in my house. Except for the Ronald McDonald outfit…too creepy.

  21. I’d likely use it to buy a buttload of fries and ice cream .
    Robble Robble- doesn’t anyone else think the BK King was way creepier than any clown?

    And no s’mores in Hawaii? O.O I feel your pain…so I ate one myself, lol

  22. My favorite sauce is honey mustard. Perfect combination with the nuggets and fries.

  23. McDonald’s hot mustard is the best dipping sauce EVER! I often stop in at McD’s just to purchase the sauce to enjoy at home with various homemade items.
