I haven’t seen Happy Meal Toys in a long time! They were the best part of visiting McDonalds! Kids don’t care about the nuggets, burgers, or fries…they just want the toys!!! I know, because that was me!!! LOL 🙂
Sandra Watts says
My son is older now and doesn’t eat Happy Meals but he will still get the toy once in a while if it is something like this. He saves them and puts them up usually.
Fee Roberts says
We just went through McDonald’s yesterday, and my granddaughter got “The Littlest Pet Shop” toys. Wish I would have known about this. I would have gotten two Happy Meals; one for a girl and a boy!
Sherry Compton says
These look really nice. How fun for my grandson. I really like how McDonalds keeps their toys relevant to what is popular today, and the coupons are great for buying the toys.

We just went to Mcdonals and we got Nerf rebel toys. Altho We don’t really go there often. But when we do go I get a happy meal to because its the perfect size. not to much! I have two boys, but we usally get boy/girl toys so that we don’t have the same toy roaming around.
I wanted to weigh in on #2, and I’m aaifrd I’m gonna end up being very long winded. Sorry in advance. I’m not a parent (although I am old enough to have a child Harry’s age, it’s just not my path right now), but I am an adult who actually was raised on the internet. My dad was a super early adopter. He thought the internet was neat, so he shared it with his kids. I cannot remember a time in my life when we didn’t have internet at home. His decision to get us online early has had a great deal of positive impact on my life to the point where I’m a serious evangelist for parents exposing their children to the internet. While the internet has certainly changed significantly since dad first attached a modem to our Commodore, I think I can say with some authority that good parenting is good parenting with or without the internet. I think the things that good parents are apt to do (balancing supervision with freedom, allowing children to explore their interests, modeling appropriate behaviour) are all things that translate well to the internet experience. The things that my father did in regards to our internet use stand out the me as a model for good online parenting. I’ll mention them, because I’m passionate about it (and proud of my dad for doing it), but I really think that good parents will come to these things naturally (and that I’ll almost certainly come off as a pedant for listing them).- Go online /with/ your kids when they’re young so that you can teach them how you expect them to behave when you give them more freedom later. – Allow/force your children to explore their interests and foster their creativity on AND off of the computer. By way of example, my younger brother got interested in programming very young. My dad certainly let him muck around with writing programs and reading about different program languages on online forums, but he also helped/made my brother learn about them offline as well. He checked out library books and he tracked down local programmers who were willing to let a very young boy watch them work. My brother gained a lot from those experiences. He’s a programmer with Google now (still in his 20s, and he makes a larger salary now than I will probably make in my entire life). I don’t think he would have gotten as far had he not been made to go offline periodically. I believe that mixing online and offline exposure to content is valuable regardless of your child’s interest. The internet offers opportunities that aren’t available in other media, but it doesn’t offer every opportunity. – Model appropriate internet usage by 1.) showing your children /how/ to use it (I taught for a while, everyone is always pushing teachers to let kids use computers in class, but kids don’t get anything useful out of computers unless they have adults who can show them how. Just like reading it’s one thing to be able to decipher the words, but it’s another thing entirely to understand the story. Comprehension has to be modeled) and 2.) showing them /when/ to use it (if you behave like an internet addict, your child will too). – Teach your child about the importance of privacy. This one is the kicker to me. I read an article once by a woman who mentioned that one thing she was scared of for her kids is that, with things like social networking, foolish teenage mistakes can be irreversible. It’s one thing if you make a poor decision when you’re 15. It’s a whole different thing when that poor decision gets posted on facebook or becomes a viral youtube video. Since my dad was new to the internet at the same time he was teaching us about it, he had ample opportunity to demonstrate good privacy behaviour. He talked with us about the importance of not sharing certain things online. He also modeled good habits for meeting online only friends in person for the first time (in a public place, make sure someone knows where you are, etc). I played online roleplaying games as a teenage girl back when they were text based, involved more actual roleplaying, and (some things never change)were populated almost entirely by men. You can imagine that knowing the importance of not sharing certain information online and setting boundaries about meeting online friends in person were very valuable skills for me. I really and truly believe 1.) that it is vital for kids today to be taught how to use computers and the internet at a young age (we teach kids to read because it’s both enjoyable and an invaluable life skill, and I’d say that the internet is starting to fall in that same category) 2.) that good parents are good parents with or without the internet. To me, the laptop shooting dad is just another example of the kind of parents who fall back on embarrassing or harshly punishing their kids in public because they failed to demonstrate to those kids what type of behaviour they expect. If you don’t teach your kid not to be a jerk online, they’re going to be a jerk online. Just like if you never teach your kid good table manners, you’ll never be able to take them out to a restaurant without risking embarrassment.
