McDonald's Toys...

Typically when you think of McDonald's toys, you think of the little junky things that eventually are tossed or hopefully not even found by your kiddo. However, once in a blue moon McDonald's has a nice line of toys - durable ones too! For instance, Holly has a whole line of the cutest My Little Pony dolls. They not much smaller than the new My Little Pony that is out in stores, which by the way have really shrunk in size. We have a couple of Strawberry Shortcake dolls that are cute, some Littlest Pet Shop critters and a line of the Madame Alexander Wizard of Oz dolls that are adorable.

However, her favorites by far is the line of Madagascar and Ice Age characters. These are played with a ton. These are two of her favorite movies too. I love to watch her play with them as she combines them into one big ol' play scene... nothing like a mammoth, dinosaur, zebra, sabertooth and giraffe all heading to the local zoo together or Africa. The imagination in her play is wonderful and if it can be occupied by the cheap McDonald's toys.... than I am all for it!
Disclaimer: We do not eat at McDonald's that much!!!! I drive through and purchase the toys separately as they are around a dollar a piece. I could NOT eat that much McDonald's - ever!

$1 is a great deal. They're $2 here.
I didn't know they ever had Madagascar toys.. my kids LOVE that movie and would love the toys!
I love that they're making toys that are more durable, like you said. The Little Pony toys are actually really cute. My girls have a couple and used to play with them all the time.

I used to think I was a nut for thinking that sometimes McD toys are cool. When my son really likes a collection I am excited for him because he also spends lots of time playing with them.

But...I'm not going to admit that I didn't know you could purchase them!
