These Super Mario McDonald's Happy Meal Toys in Malaysia Are All Kinds of Awesome

Posted by Thomas Whitehead

Penguin Mario! Boomerang Mario! Peach!

Not so long ago there was a Super Mario range of McDonald's Happy Meal toys in the UK; restaurants near Nintendo Life HQ reported increased sales to late 20s / early 30s bearded men, some of whom had no children in tow to justify their visit. We even did an unboxing.

The same wave of enthusiasm for cheap food and collectible plastic toys is set to engulf Malaysia, too, as a fresh range of Super Mario toys are available in the country from today. Importantly, they're different toys to those we recently saw in the UK, which naturally fills us with envy. As you can see above Toad and Luigi miss out in favour of Mario in various outfits, including his snazzy Boomerang and Penguin threads. Princess Peach also makes an appearance after her absence in the UK, too.

Have you had your fill of Super Mario Happy Meal toys in your country over the past year, or are you green with envy at the variations now available in Malaysia?

Thanks to Rei for the tip.

Looks like they've got the same "Mario jumping out of a pipe" that we did in the UK. The others looks great too!

US please! I personally loved the old N64 Taco Bell toys and promotion. I wish I could find that stuff...sadly it may have been trashed long ago by my mom. I had several of the pog like things and most if not all of the toys from that one. Yoshi was and still is my favorite.

I want Penguin Mario. Also, they should have used the chicken suit from the beta of NSMBWii. It would have been much more hilarious.

These look loads better than the ones we got in the UK recently, though 5. Mario with the Goal Pole puts some seriously disturbing images into one's head!

I would start eating or at least buying McDonalds for these if they came to Canada!

And here we are in the US, all we have are lame spinning top-like Skylanders toys and non-working Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures toys, courtesy of McD's and BK, respectively.

The Malaysian version of pipe Mario has a base according to the picture, maybe that means he won't be erm... pop-able?

Nice, good for you if you live in Malaysia. Too bad I don't eat at McDonalds or live in Malaysia.

You can't buy them seperately in other countries?
In Malaysia you can just buy the toy without those happy meals.

Malaysian here but... Nintendo's barely known much here. Well, Mario's universal so that kinda negates that anyway. I've already got Figuarts Mario preordered though.

My wife enjoys McDonalds and brought me back a Mario and Luigi on separate occasions. They now stand either side of my prized Mario Kart trophy in the lounge!

Sweet little toys, I still remember the SMB3 stuff from the 80s. Would be nice if they brought these to NA.

Is it true that if your kids collect them all they get a special insulin pen made to look like Link's crossbow?

With Yoshi they managed to make something worse than the Super Mario RPG version. The clown feet make him look the new yoshi island one though.

I'd go just to buy the toys, you can still do that right? It's been a while since I've been to a McD's...
That is, if they come to the US.
