The Happiest Happy Meal


For the months of November and December, McDonald's celebrated Sanrio's 50th Anniversary with some of their most beloved characters: Chococat, My Melody, Badtz Maru, Sugarbunny, Keroppi, and of course, Hello Kitty. As fully functional watches, they became the surprise toy that came with each McDonald's Happy Meal. I knew I had to have one when I saw the advertisement hanging from a McDonald's window. It brought back childhood memories and I couldn't help but want them. An extremely long story short, I ended up spending an entire weekend searching for all seven watches. It's a long story because finding Hello Kitty turned into a huge ordeal since she's the most popular among children and adults. She was the first to sellout, but I finally managed to find one after ten phone calls and seven McDonald's visits. Thank you Julio! He was the only McDonald's worker kind enough to find and reserve one for me.

Yessssss, Sanrio! I'm going to have to go to McDonald's just for this now. Oh I just love asking the cashier a happy mean with a big smile on my face. It helps that I look like a 12 year old :D

I love My Melody!!!! I would have hunted that one down.It would have been amazing if there were 'Little Twin Stars' watches also...those two always get outshined by Hello Kitty in the Sanrio kingdom.
I really hope this promotion comes to France!

JD said...

So you had to buy seven happy meals to get all of them? That's ambitious...But cool!
Have a nice day!

@JD I ate as many Happy Meals as I could because I like the concept behind it. You can buy the watches individually for only $2.16 USD. I ate a total of 5 happy meals and just bought the rest!
