Those Mario Kart 8 McDonald's Happy Meal Toys Are Now Available in the US

Posted by Thomas Whitehead

Clap along...

Not too long ago we brought you the news that Mario Kart 8 toys were coming to McDonald's Happy Meals in the US, predicting an early July arrival. Well, they're now available, and looking rather charming.

As reported before and as the image above shows, there are seven toys to collect in addition to a Mario visor, and they'll be compatible with the McPlay Power app, too. The Happy Meal box is also heavily branded for Mario Kart 8, making this some pretty useful advertising in the huge US market.

You can see a commercial for these below. Are you a young gamer planning to collect these, a parent, or perhaps a grown up that'll try and grab them without the luxury of offspring as an excuse? Let us know.

And here I was thinking I didn't need to go to McD's today. Remember, most of the locations will let you buy the toy only, just ask. It's like a buck or so.

I tried to get one today and they almost gave me a stupid fuzzy animal of some kind instead. I left because they wouldn't let me pick out a Mario Kart one.

Already picked up a Mario figurine. Between this and Amiibos, I'm going to be waist deep in plastic Nintendo crap by the end of the year. Not that I mind. I'll put some of these racers on my desk at work. :P

My brother got Luigi today and let me have one of the stickers it came with. I didn't really see the figure that good though to be honest.

I walked into a Shell/McDonalds today in Texas, so I got to hear the coin collecting sound every time someone bought something at the gas station and there were Mario Kart toys in the McDonalds.

I keep saying this on other forums and no one seems to listen,
you don't have to buy the meal. Like with Burger King you can just walk in and order a toy for 1.50 and leave. Ask the cashier which selections they have and go to town. It's not rocket science.
On a few other Nintendo sites there are literally dozens of people just shouting at one another for the unhealthy food or getting a child's meal as an adult. Just order a toy. So easy.

These toys are a must-have, I hope I can get one tomorrow when I go shopping at Wal-Mart with my parents. Well that's if Canada even has the toys available since no one has really confirmed it.
