So after stoping at McDonald's yesterday and picking up one of the mario toys i couldnt help myself, so i went to others and got some more.

There are 8 in total and i have gotten 4 so far. You dont need to buy a happy meal you can just ask for the toy. Im not sure yet if im gonna open them or not either.

Now price is a little strang. In my area they seem to either be $1.81 or $2 for each toy. Although ive seen people on facebook say they have gotten for as low as 94 cents each.

What have i learned from all of this? Well there are waaay too many McDonald's in a 2 mile radius of my house. I didnt really seem to notice before this.

So are yall gonna go out and get these toys?

Do you just ask for a toy, or do you ask for a specific toy?  Like "I want the Mario toy"?

My Daughter picked one up over the weekend and kinda rubbed it in my face.  I said I thought it would look good in my video game room, she disagreed......(sad trombone)

They no longer sell the Mac Jr.!!!!!  I may never go back.  That was pretty much the ideal McD burger right there.

I got four of the eight, all of which my daughter promptly took and placed in her room  :lol:

 

I'm probably going to go there for lunch today and see if I can snag others. I think the Big Mac is perfect just the way it is; I tried both the Mac Jr and the Grand Mac and I felt like Goldilocks.

I caved and got the Princess and Invincible Mario off eBay. I got the Princess and Bowser for 4 bucks shipped, which wasn't too bad actually, even though we already had a Bowser. Invincible Mario on the other hand seems to be more popular; the best I could get was 4.50 shipped, and that was after I worked the seller down with Make An Offer (he wanted 6 shipped initially).

 

How much is everyone's local McD's charging for the toys? The ones in my area only charge a buck a toy, but I've heard of some areas charging 2 dollars a toy. It would certainly explain some of the eBay pricing I've seen as well.

I haven't ordered a happy meal in years but if there was ever a reason to get one this would be it. These toys might make fun junk box items one day too.

My family ended up with 5 of the 8 (with a lot of Princess Peaches), so I used ebay for the rest.

 

And, you know me, I made a video reviewing them!
