The Justice League Action and SuperHero Girls are now in Happy Meals! The Happy meal.com has not been updated yet but the store near me had the DC toys tonight.
Update: The McDonalds near me did not have any signage about special Happy Meal prices on Tuesdays. They may have discontinued the program or just not advertising it like they used too. Or it could be done at selected locations.
According to Happy meal.com the next happy meal toys feature DC comics. The Justice League Action set features male superheroes and some of their masks. The girls toys are mini dolls and a Wonder Woman tiara, a Super girl hair band, or a Batgirl mask. Unconfirmed reports say these toys will be in the meals beginning September 20. Watch for advertising or in store posters to see when they officially are released.
The McDonald’s in my area used to have a happy meal special on Tuesday nights. Tuesday from 4pm till 9pm Happy Meals are $1.99. I haven’t been there in a while so check your location to see if they still offer this deal.
I’ll update when I see them in store. Usaully HappyMeal.com has some online activity to match the toys theme so there could be coloring page or crossword puzzles when the toys come out.
Mega Blok cars in General Mills Cereals
I had a nice surprise at the grocery store today. Actual toys in the cereals boxes. Specifically selected General Mills brands have a Mega Bloks car inside. There are four different vehicles; a pick-up truck, a SUV, and two cars. Each set has a set of Hello Kitty and Power Rangers stickers. I like that both themes are in each set. IT prevents a Hello Kitty fan being upsets if the got the Power Ranger set or vice versa. Or you don’t even have too add the stickers. That way you can use the blocks with your others sets. You can choose which set to decorate your car. Once the box is empty, you can cut out sections and make a ramp to drive the cars over.
I spotted them in Lucky Charms, Reese’s Puffs, and Honey Nut Cheerios. According to the General Mills blog the toys can also be found in Golden Grahams, Coco Puffs and Cinnamon Toast Crunch.

The LEGO Action cups are now in happy meals. It’s just a cup but if you scan the code there’s mini games in the Mcplay app.
I have had a number of hit from people searching “How are long minions at McDonald’s?” I don’t know but can guess. Happy meal.com lists say the next Happy meal theme will feature Smurf 2. The movie is will be released late July or early August. I the Happy will change when the movie hit, just as it changed to minions when Despicable Me 2 opened. So you probably have a week to a week and a half to get your minions.
For all those that just found my blog, please leave a comment or question.
Do you have a favorite minion?
Have you watched the animated Minion shorts? Wal-mart has a dvd with three Minion shorts, three Lorax shorts and a Hop short.
Do you play Minion Rush?
I’m also getting searches for “where to buy despicable me 2 minion surprise blind bag” so far I’ve only seen them at Toys r Us and K-mart. Have you found them anywhere else?
McDonald’s has the Despicable Me 2 Minion toys in their Happy meals. All toys have some kind of action feature. There are eight to collect. This is Phil he has a whistle. Visit Happy Meal.com to see animations of the toys.
The toys are a nice size but are not poseable.
The McDonald’s in my area have a happy meal special on Tuesday nights. Tues from 4pm till 9pm Happy Meals are $1.99. Check your location to see if they offer this deal.
Screen grabs from the happy meal site. So you can see all the toys. Visit the site to see how to use the toy features, see some clips, and download some coloring pages.

Despicable Me 2 opens in theaters today. McDonald’s will have Minion toys in Happy Meals sometime in July. Happy Meal.com still has Hot wheels and Twinkle toes listed as current toy. Despicable Me toys are coming soon. So maybe this week. When I see them I’ll let you know.
Previous Minion Posts
Despicable Me 2 opens in theaters on July 3. But Despicable Me 2 toys are now in stores. Today I spotted Minion Surprise Blind Bags. The bags are silver and slightly larger than most blind bags. Since they are called Minion Surprise You might think that only minions would be in the bags, the variety of minions in Despicable Me would make a great basis for their own collection. But there are other characters in the bags. Gru, Dr Nefario, Agnes, Margo, Edith, the unicorn plus a few others are also available.
I bought a couple of bags, There are numbers stamped on the bag but they were the same so no help in guessing what’s in the bag. There’s also a card surrounding the figures making it hard to guess by touch. You can see the card here. It’s the same image as on the bag.
See Here’s the card. Like I was saying the card image is similar to the bag itself. A list a characters in on the other side. The card opens and the figure rests inside. You might be able to feel through the card and tell if the figure is short and bulky or thinner. That won’t tell you which mini is in the bag. But may help narrow it down. Many of the figs have the same general shape. Gru and Antono are narrow and the bottom and wider at top. Minions and unicorn are short and squat.
Hi Carl. Just a minute. He’s ready for his close up. The figures come with a small display base.
The Blind bags are $2.99 each and are pretty cool. They are made by think way toys. They were larger Despicable Me figures for $9.99(at Kmart and TRU). Later found at Target for 7.99
I saw the Despica blimp a few weeks ago. Sadly I didn’t have my camera with me.
There are also minion toys in some cereal and at McDonald’s. I forgot what brand of cereal I saw them but they had rings on their heads so they might be zipper pulls for backpacks or key /phone fobs. The surprise bag fig look better than the cereal toys. I need to see the happy meal toys before I make a judgment on those.
psst that was post #400! plus closing in on 20,000 views.
UPDATE: Toys r Us has a 10 pieces set of these for $20. There are 14 shown on the bag so you don’t get them all. Carl is not included in the set. Niether are 3 new characters from the sequel.
