McDonald's Is Bringing Back Classic Toys For 40th-Anniversary Of Happy Meal

McDonald's Happy Meal is officially turning 40 years old this year, and the fast food chain is celebrating in a pretty epic way.

Starting Nov. 7, McDonald's is bringing back some of its most popular Happy Meal toys from the last four decades so big kids will be able to reminisce about the good ol' days. But you'll have to act fast if you want to score yourself a new limited-edition Cowboy McNugget, Hamburglar or Patti the Platypus Beanie Baby.

McDonald’s restaurants in more than 90 countries around the world are participating in the Surprise Happy Meal promotion, but it will only last for four days.

Kids who grew up in the late 1980s will be excited to see the return of Fireman McNugget and the Hamburger Changeable. Nineties babies will likely be thrilled to see the McDonald's Hot Wheels Thunderbird, Power Rangers and Tamagotchis.

McDonald's also kept kids of the early 2000s in mind and threw in Sorcerer's Apprentice Mickey and Hello Kitty toys into the mix.

“Since the Happy Meal was introduced on the menu, it quickly became synonymous with our brand,” said Steve Easterbrook, McDonald’s CEO. “Today, this iconic red box creates lasting memories for billions of families annually across the world.”
