McDonald’s Is Bringing Back Happy Meal Toys From the ’90s | 22 Words

When it comes to fast food, there's one brand that trumps them all. McDonald's, in spite of a market full of competition, really does reign supreme when it comes to food that's instantly satisfying (though potentially a little regrettable down the line).

And there's one thing McDonald's is perhaps even better known for than the food - the amazing toys, of course. With every Happy Meal purchase, you get a freebie that brings hours (or at least minutes) of fun. Many of us have particularly fond childhood memories of the toys. Hey, it always seems as though things were better back in the '90s.

But it seems as though McDonald's has listened to customers - and are bringing back some fan favorites, for a limited time only.

When it comes to fast food, McDonald's reigns supreme.

It was founded in 1940 in San Bernadino, California, and has really only gone from strength to strength since.

And there's a good reason for their success.

McDonald's has a menu absolutely filled with delicious items - truly, there's something for everyone at the golden arches.

But for many, there's one menu item that stands out.

The Happy Meal is small, but perfectly formed - designed for kids, they offer those in need of a smaller snack the perfect light bite.

But there's another big advantage to the Happy Meal.

Alongside a main menu item, side, and drink, they also come with an added bonus - a free toy!

Sure, they're not always the highest of quality.

But they do add a hint of much-needed fun to a meal. Over the years, certain limited edition toys have turned into coveted collectors items.

There's just one problem.

In recent years, it seems as though the quality of the toys has been on a steady decline. Maybe it's nostalgia, or maybe they really aren't as great as they used to be?

Remember these classics?

Collecting McDonald's toys was, for many of us, a cornerstone of childhood. And when the toys were this great, it was hard not to get obsessed.

But there has been some very exciting news.

McDonald's has finally listened to the concerns of customers - and come up with an incredible solution.

Yep, that's right.
