1. Partnering with Reading is Fundamental, McDonald's in the U.S. began giving out books instead of toys Tuesday, February 2. The books will be served along side their Happy Meals instead of the usual toys until February 15, in an effort to promote literacy. Giveaways include Michael Bond's "Paddington" and "Valentine's Day, Mouse". This is not the first time McDonald's has given away books. Do you think this is a good initiative on McDonald's part?

Love it! Anything to promote literacy

3. In 1979 McDonald's rolled out the U.S.'s first Happy Meal. It was circus-wagon-themed and came with the standard hamburger or cheeseburger option, as well as French fries, cookies, a soft drink and — of course — a toy. Upon opening their meal, kids got either a "McDoodler" stencil, a "McWrist" wallet, an ID bracelet, a puzzle lock, a spinning top or a McDonaldland-character eraser. Do you remember wanting to go to McDonald's BECAUSE of the toy?

Yes, and it was by far the best part of the meal

Some toy give-a-ways with fast foods are actually worth lots of money. In 2009, 11 year old Luke Underwood from the U.K. sold his 7,000 McDonald's toy collection for over $10,000. Are you in possession of any of these valuable kids' meal toys, or know someone who perhaps is?
