Mcdonald's is hitching its Christmas wagon to Moshi Monsters!
For those of us who are old enough to remember, McDonald’s use to have a special Happy Meal promotion around Christmas and it appears this year will be no different. Moshi Monsters, the online multiplayer hit will be part of the promotion at McDonald’s because McDonald’s has to have two sets of toys for every promotion. One for boys and one for girls. I remember when it would always be hot wheels and Barbie or the Toy parade at Christmas. Man, I just showed how old I am on that but whatever. I'm looking forward to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle toys that are the partner toy with Moshi, as the McDonald’s web site says. Hope they don't change it up, as they do sometimes.
Not only will each Happy Meal come with a collectible toy, it will come with a trial three-day membership to MoshiMonsters.com. There will be 7 known toys and an 8th mystery toy, which more and more fast food joints are doing lately. Burger King does that alot and anyone who went through the Pokemon toy craze at BK can attest to that. Getting a Happy Meal promotion usually shows how big or popular something has become and juding by the 70+ million users, Moshi Monsters has reached that level of popularity. What toy is in the happy meal attracts customers and one wrong move keeps potential customers from making several trips. Only time will tell if this Monster sized gamble pays off for Mickey-D's.
