In a deal with Nintendo, McDonald’s has announced that Mario Kart 8 themed toy’s will be coming to Happy Meal’s very soon. It’s next in line after the “How to Train Your Dragon 2” themed toys promotion is over. You’ll be able to get one of seven possibility’s: Mario, Luigi, Bowser, Toad, Peach, Donkey Kong, and Yoshi. Each toy comes with the little Mario hat shown to the right. What is interesting is that Mario, Luigi, Peach, DK all have the anti-gravity wheels while the rest don’t. Does this mean they will ride along walls through a small magnetic force. Who knows, as Happy Meal toys are usually not very complex.
Happy Meal toys usually change within 3-4 weeks, so expect a press release soon by Nintendo detailing more information. As of now, this promotion has only been announced for the U.S. We’ll let you know if these toys will be coming to other regions also. Are you planning to get these toys for your son/daughter? Or are you getting them for yourself? Sound off your voice in the comment section Either way, they look pretty darn sweet!
