Nov 15 2011The Support Group for McDonalds Toys
Scientists have proven that only two things will remain recognisable after a nuclear holocaust: cockroaches, and Happy Meal Toys.
As you know, our family motto is “If It Ain’t Broke, It Ain”t Ours”. Even in our family, there are complete sets of intact McDonald’s toys whose ancestry goes back generations. These are the only things you cab find when looking for something that you really want (like when you look under the couch for the remote control)
It must be very hard for these toys – so forcefully demanded by their child owners, ignored after 10 minutes, but doomed to live on for such a long period after they are no lopnger wanted. Luckilly there are support groups for discarded McDonald’sToys.
Pixar will release the Short Film ‘Small Fry” to accompany the upcoming muppets movie (which also looks a treat).
In the latest Toy Story Toon, Buzz Lightyear is left behind at a fast food restaurant when a kids’ meal toy version of Buzz takes his place. While Bonnie’s toys are stuck with the annoying 3-inch-tall Buzz impersonator, the real Buzz is trapped in the restaurant at a support group for discarded toys. As Woody and the gang devise a way to rescue their friend, Buzz tries to escape the toy psychotherapy meeting.
Here’s a short preview of the short film
I wonder if McDonalds will release a set of discarded McDonald’s toys to tie in with the movie. (pre-discarded toys?)
