As kids, some of us used to beg our parents to buy a Happy Meal for us just to get the toys.
Now that the 90â€™s kids are adults and financially independent, thereâ€™s really nothing stopping us from buying as many Happy Meals as we want.
Why would we want to do that? Simply because McDonaldâ€™s are hitting us right in the nostalgia with their 40th Anniversary toys from the 90’s.
Theyâ€™re bringing back the likes of Ronald McDonaldâ€™s best buddies Grimace and Hamburglar, Bugs Bunny from Space Jam and Furby, just to name a few.
The most interesting part is that you donâ€™t know what youâ€™d get!
So, naturally, I’m now going to ruin that for you…
The reason why you see so many cars lining up at your local McDonaldâ€™s drive-thru is that they’re either trying their luck for the limited edition Hello Kitty carrier (sold out everywhere at the time of writing), or trying to complete their collection of these nostalgic toys.
I simply couldnâ€™t miss the fun myself and my little misadventure started with dragging my colleagues to lunch in McDonaldâ€™s.
I bought two Happy Meals and got two Grimaces on my first try.
It was then I realised, the toys werenâ€™t random at all!
Every â€˜random toyâ€™ is associated with a number. In this case, Grimace is Toy 6.
I decided to try out this hack at a different McDonaldâ€™s. I asked for toys with different numbers, and it worked!
By now Iâ€™ve gotten
a belly from eating 4 Happy Meals 1 Tamagotchi replica, 2 Grimaces, and 1 Cowboy McNugget, each from different years within the 90â€™s.
5 hours and close to RM26 worth of Happy Meals later, my sister sent me a cheat code she found online for free.
Here it is for your convenience:
Be quick because these toys will only be available for a limited time!
