McDonald's is launching a new line of Super Mario toys for Happy Meals in the United Kingdom to celebrate the launch of Super Mario Run. The first of these toys will become available in most McDonald's restaurants in the UK today, January 11th, and the different toys will be released gradually for a few weeks until the promotion ends on February 7th.
Nintendo Life, a popular Nintendo-themed news site, has given us an early look at this new line of toys. A McDonald's employee from the UK contacted the site a few days before they launched and sent Nintendo Life photos of the various toys, some marketing materials, and even the previously-unseen trailer for the upcoming Happy Meal promotion. In the gallery below, you can take a look at the poster for the promotion, the redesigned Happy Meal box, and the toys themselves. The very first image details the schedule for the release of these toys: Yoshi and Mario will become available in the first week of the promotion, Peach and the Red Shell in the second week, Bowser and the Blocks in the third week, and Luigi and the Piranha plant in the fourth week.
What do you guys think? Do you live in the UK, and will you be buying a Happy Meal this month to take advantage of the promotion? Which toy do you like best? Let us know in the comments below!
