I was prime happy meal age when the toothpaste came out, but I don’t recall getting it. Seems like the kind of traumatic experience that would stick with you.

The minions were a bit of a stretch. I remember those being pretty decent (as happy meal toys go). I don’t think a few hard-of-hearing pearl clutchers is enough to qualify the toy a “top 5 worst”. Especially considering the complete junk McD puts out most of the time.

Favourite happy meal toy - a plastic “iPod” that played a 10-second sample of the chorus of Aqua’s Barbie girl


I’m not sure if it was in the same line or a later one, but they also had pedometers at one point. I ran a few McDonald’s restaurants and we used to try to wear them and sometimes after 8-12 hour shifts we’d still be at only like 100 steps.

If you ask people who worked there, I think we’d call different ones worse. I hated the Ty ones the most. People would lose their minds about which one they were getting.

The linked article is really shabby. Seems to mostly draw content from this list of 15 from The Recipe, which also includes pictures.
