Happy Meal toys

What's your favorite happy meal toy of all time?

Mine is the muppet baby kermit the frog on his skateboard. So cool! I didn't get happy meals very much when I was a kid - if ever - and that is one that I remember.
I love England, what can I say?

a lobster mini beanie baby. I think his name was Klaus.
In Barrie's play and novel, the roles of fairies are brief: they are allies to the Lost Boys, the source of fairy dust and ...They are portrayed as dangerous, whimsical and extremely clever but quite hedonistic.

"Shall I give you a kiss?" Peter asked and, jerking an acorn button off his coat, solemnly presented it to her.

Dragons. I didn't get the Happy meals -I just bought the toys. I was 19.

The one that immediately comes to mind is a top with a rubber band-powered launcher. But I'm fairly sure that was from Burger Chef and not McDonald's.

There were these Star Trek Cartoon Viewers, back around when ST:TMP came out.

I liked those a lot.

Also the Jungle Book wind up toys. I still have my Kaa.

I loved the ones that came with Legos. I remember going to 3 different McDonald's just to get one of the sets.

I have twin boys, so we get a lot of happy meal toys (twice a month we go). One of my favorites is from this past month: a cat from "Catscratch" that makes farting sounds- totally rude. I keep it on my lab bench at work.

I loved the mini McD's transformers ... you know the big mac, the large fries, the pancakes carton that all turned into little robots.

My mom was smart and saved those toys from my grubby little fingers. They're still in pretty good condition, and have become a centerpiece in her display case of fancy stuff.

I would have to say my favorite were the beanie babies. They were great bartering tools to use with adults who wanted to collect them. Are they even worth anything? I still have a few...
