McDonald’s 40th Anniversary Happy Meal Toys [Collector’s Box]

Sharing is caring!

Do you remember that feeling of opening a Happy Meal box to find out what toy you got?

To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the first-ever Happy Meal, McDonald’s launched launching the limited-edition Surprise Happy Meal with some of its most popular Happy Meal toys from the last four decades.

The Surprise Happy Meal was made available in more than 90 countries around the world and at participating McDonald’s restaurants in Canada.

McDonald’s Canada sent me a special Collector’s Box (not available for public) with 15 throwback iconic toys.

In Canada, the Happy Meal also holds a special place in the hearts of Canadian families, with a portion of the proceeds from every Happy Meal sold going to Ronald McDonald House Charities Canada.

The Happy Meal program has raised more than $70 million for the charity since 2004.

These funds help keep more than 25,000 families close together each year at Ronald McDonald Houses and Ronald McDonald Family Rooms across Canada, while their child is being treated at a nearby children’s hospital.

Which McDonalds Happy Meal toy do you remember the most?
