McDonalds Super Mario Happy Meal Toys are Insanely Collectible
It's not often that a fast food toy will catch my attention. However, when it relates to video games in some way, I often will gravitate towards things like these. I got caught up collecting the Mario Kart 8 toys a few years ago, especially since they were cool looking cars and a neat Super Mario visor that fit my son perfectly. This time around, these toys feel like a higher quality, and each one is special in some way. All use different molds and have different features. It honestly reminds me of the Super Mario Bros. 3 line of Happy Meal toys that I used to collect as a kid.
In Japan they received a similar set earlier this year, but their line of toys included 12 toys instead of the 8 we received here in the USA. The Mario figure was switched out as well. It makes sense, the other four toys were definitely the least fun of the bunch, but still I would have loved to have Goomba climbing down the stairs, piranha plant, and the posable bricks and question block. Take a look below for a review of what each figure does. Oh, and did you know that you don't need to buy food to get these? They cost $1.70 each at my local McDonalds, and usually if they are slow, management will be willing to track down the figures you need. Just be patient and polite! Good luck and happy hunting!
