For forty years McDonald’s Happy Meals have made kids… well… happy!
Here’s a history of the fast food favorite.
The Happy Meal was first launched in 1979.
At that time it was known as the “The Circus Wagon Happy Meal” and included a hamburger or cheeseburger, fries, cookie and a toy.
In 1984, McNuggets were added as an option.
By 2012, Happy Meal fries came in smaller portions and fruit and milk were added as an option as more customers asked for healthier options.
Now McDonald’s is celebrating the Happy Meal’s 40th anniversary by bringing back some old school toys.
Beanie Babies, the Hamburglar and Power Rangers are just some of the retro toys that will be making a comeback.
Many of these toys have become collector’s items.
However if you want to grab one, you better act fast.
The retro toy lineup will only be available November 7 through November 11.
