Rubbish Nintendo merchandise courtesy of McDonalds

McDonalds Yoshi toy Unfortunately no good for the non-US readers and myself, McDonalds is to unleash a bunch of Nintendo themed toys in America to complement their “Happy Meals”. As typically cheap as ever, the toys don’t really look that faithful to their subject matter and Yoshi looks downright freakish. Still, those of you in the US might want to order their ‘kids’ some Happy Meals regardless so you can add them to your collections.

There are six toys in total: a Mario ball, a Mario Tennis mallet (?), a Donkey Kong holding two wheels (??), a Donkey Kong inside a wheel (???), a Yoshi hugging thin air, and a Mario Golf Yoshi that spits a golf ball into the air. Nothing particularly exciting, then. Why not capitalise on something that’s actually widely associated with Nintendo, such as a Mario mushroom or some Yoshi eggs? Why a picture of Donkey Kong in the middle of a wheel? Meaningless is what it is.
