I don’t have fast food often, but when I do McDonald’s isn’t a top choice. I’ll admit with geeky pride that the second I found out that McDonald’s had a set of Mario toys in their happy meals, though, I excitedly told everyone I knew and looked up everything I could about them. I recently purchased a few and tried them out, they rock!
 
These three toys are numbered 1-3 on their bags and given the names Jumping Mario Toy, Yoshi Toy and Luigi Launcher Toy respectively. Jumping Mario is definitely the coolest: after flipping a switch on the bottom there’s a button that plays the jumping sound effect! The sound activates on release, so that if you set it on a table or the floor or your hand and then lift him up it’ll play. Yoshi’s tongue sticks out when pressing his “saddle”, and Luigi has wheels under him so that when the lever is pressed behind the pipe he shoots out and rolls a good distance. If you had some small bowling pins or something similar you could bowl with him! They’re all pretty awesome toys for a Happy Meal, or you can buy em for only $1.79+tax each like I did.

The McDonald’s I checked only had these 3 available out of all 8, and for those outside of the US you may have some different options. There’s an incredibly in-depth and fun review video below (not mine) that shows 12(!) toys in the UK/Japan (VERIFY THIS), and while the set of blocks look AMAZING my jealousy quickly vanished when I realized Jumping Mario isn’t available there.
