Arriving in the UK in June
If you're a die hard fan of plastic Super Mario toys, fast food, and burgers presented inside a cardboard house (who isn't?), then you may remember we recently revealed that a Super Mario range of McDonald's toys would be returning to UK restaurants this summer. Well, thanks to our undercover McDonald's reporter, we can...
Ten new toys to collect
Thanks to our undercover reporter at McDonalds UK, we have learnt the exciting news that Super Mario is returning to Happy Meal for the fourth time! The moustachioed plumber remains a firm favourite with families and this year’s promotion has a range of ten new Mario toys available. The promotion will run for six weeks from...
Munch munch munch
Nintendo has enjoyed a long-lasting relationship with fast food giant McDonald's - those of you old enough will no doubt recall the iconic Super Mario Bros. 3 Happy Meal toy range from the early '90s. More recently the two companies have collaborated on a series of fresh toy ranges, and we've just heard that North American burger...
It's a 'waving Mario', apparently
Just recently we shared some early images of the McDonald's Super Mario Happy Meal toys, which are rolling into the UK on 11th January. In a quirky turn, due to shortages of the current Furby toys, some were given out early - that was the source of our early images. Now a Nintendo Life regular with access to the...
What is he doing?
Late last year we reported on the rather pleasing news that Super Mario toys were coming back to McDonald's Happy Meals in the UK, all set to be the January campaign. Now we have some images of the toys, with one lucky reader even getting hold of one early. We were sent the following tweet showing the Mario toy from the range, in...
What is Mario doing on his chocolate throne?
Following news that the UK McDonald's outlets will be getting a fresh line of Super Mario Happy Meal toys next year, we've now hearing reports that Japanese restaurants will also be receiving new figures around the same time. The hook of this particular range is that each toy recreates famous actions...
Including balloons and 'Find Yoshi' activities
The Super Mario franchise and McDonald's Happy Meals are regular buddies, with promotions through different territories over the past few years. Super Mario is now coming back to UK Happy Meals in early 2017, which will be good timing with Nintendo planning its big Nintendo Switch reveal around that...
McDonald's shares jump 23 percent as a result
Another day, another Pokémon GO success story. This time it's McDonald's in Japan which has enjoyed the benefits of the new surge of interest in all things Pokémon. Since it started giving Pokémon-themed toys away with its Happy Meals, sales have gone through the roof and their shares have jumped a...
Gotta collect them all
Earlier today we shared the confirmation that Super Mario Happy Meal toys are heading to the UK on 12th August, with stock arriving at outlets throughout the country. It'll result in plenty of people eating more burgers or, alternatively, walking into a fast food restaurant and asking to purchase small toys. Whatever the case,...
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...
Best. Happy Meal. Ever.
In recent times we've been marvelling at Nintendo's entries into the McDonald's Happy Meal scene, even going so far as to unbox the recent Super Mario toys in the UK. They were fairly generic franchise toys, but it's all about to get real in the U.S. with the emergence of the Mario Kart 8 toys pictured above. As you can see...
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...
