Nintendo and McDonalds have partnered up to provide Mario Kart 8 Deluxe themed Happy Meal Toys. Any Happy Meal purchased between today and May 22nd will come with a Super Mario Brothers themed toy in celebration of the launch of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.
“Nintendo is always looking for ways to expand its brand, and a partnership with the family-friendly McDonald’s restaurants felt like a great fit,” said Doug Bowser, Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “Like Mario, Happy Meals are something both kids and parents grew up with.”
The eight themed toys include Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, Bowser, Yoshi, Invincible Mario, a Red Koopa Shell and 1-Up Mushroom. Each toy has a separate function, such as Invincible Mario’s ability to light up in different colors.
Not only are the toys going to be available between now and May 22nd, but Nintendo will be giving 100 lucky winners a Nintendo Switch prize pack which includes a brand new Nintendo Switch and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe!
Eligible customers that scan and purchase a meal at McDonald’s using the McDonald’s mobile app between now and May 22 will be entered. Customers get one entry for redeeming any deal in the app and two entries when they purchase a Happy Meal. No purchase is necessary to enter. The sweepstakes is open only to residents of the United States who are 13 and older. Official rules for the sweepstakes, including details about how to enter without making a purchase, can be found at online and http://www.PlayatMcD.com and at participating McDonald’s restaurants.
Looks like my meals will be getting a little bit happier for the next few weeks.
