You Can Get These Vintage Happy Meal Toys Starting Tomorrow

McDo knows how to play the nostalgia game!

( Everyone’s got a strangely universal McDonald’s memory—even if it never actually happened to you, you see it happening, or understand why it would mean a lot to someone. For some of us, it’s going to the drive-thru after school on a Friday, as if to signal the weekend has officially begun. (We should do that again, TBH.) For others, it’s your grandparent holding your hand, telling you they’re taking you for a Happy Meal so you can get the toy inside. From November 21 to 24, you can relive that memory—or make a new one, if it was something you never got to do—with the Surprise Happy Meal, featuring the best-selling toys from the past four decades.


Which ones were your favorites?

Can you believe it’s been 40 years since McDo first came out with the Happy Meal? We’re loving this ultimate throwback, and we’re sure you will too, with vintage toys like the Hamburger Changeable from 1987, the Hotwheels Thunderbird from 1993, and the Tamagotchi keychain from 1998. And before you ask, no, we don’t feel old. (We feel really old.)
