We don't eat fast food very often, but in the past few months we have been to fast food places a couple of times. My boys are old enough now that it is actually worth it to buy a kid's meal for them, although if I could buy the meal cheaper without the toy I would totally do it.
Here are some of the "wonderful" toys that we have ended up with:
Next we got two of these lovely Bob balls at Carl's Jr.
Not too bad, right? We haven't seen the movie that goes with the toy, but what little boy doesn't enjoy playing with a ball that looks like a monster?
Last month when we had a busy Saturday we ended up at Arby's. I could not believe the "toy" that came in that kid's meal!
Wow! Justice League Bobbing-Head Heroes! Cool, huh?!
Did I mention that they are made of cardboard?
And guess who gets to assemble this little beauty? That's right... Mommy. I hope your good at origami! Check out these instructions:
Yadda, yadda, yadda... Blobby-blah. Tab A into slot A, Tab B into slot B. Repeat 12 times...
Who thought this would make a good kid's meal toy? It took me 20 minutes to get this sucker put together.
Neat-o, huh? And the head kinda bobbles... ooooh, aaaaaahh!
When I got it together my son said, "Put it here on the table so I can get a good look at it."
"Sure." I replied, "Because that's about all you can do with it."
The darn thing nearly fell apart before I got a picture taken!
Today the boys and I went out for fast food again. I had some free meal coupons from the summer reading program at the library. The toy we ended up with was some kind of magnifying glass with a lovely cardboard scene to look at. I wasn't sure that would be very exciting for my three year old and 1 1/2 year old. So I went to exchange it for another toy.
This time we ended up with a Bob robot that is a voice changer:
So you talk really loud into the slots in the back of the robot and your voice comes out the front... just as loud and somewhat hollow sounding. Looks like another winner, huh?
