If you have kids, and you occasionally can't be bothered cooking lunch on a Saturday, McDonald's Happy Meals are extremely useful. Cheap plastic toys are part of this equation. Currently, it's Batman themed, which my four-year-old is very happy about. That's cool, but Batman isn't as cool as Mario. Clearly.
And Mario Happy Meal toys are currently what's happening in the US, which got me wondering: will these toys make it to the shores of Australia?
The answer to that question is "yes".
We asked McDonald's locally if they were bringing the Mario toys to Australia. The current plan is to run the Super Mario Happy Meal program in September and October this year.
I recommend the chicken nuggets. Protip: your kids don't notice if you steal one of their nuggets. Works every time.
