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.
