“The Super Mario Bros. Movie” is coming in 2023, and to celebrate, McDonald’s has a line of limited-time Happy Meal toys themed to the film. Mario, Luigi, Toad, Princess Peach, Donkey Kong, Bowser, and Lumalee are up for grabs when you next visit McDonald’s.
These toys are not all released at once. Here in Orlando, Fla, the toy available at time of writing is Toad in his blue racing kart. But, collectors can continue the hunt for all characters, as well as two versions of Mario, in Happy Meal purchases.
With info directly from the McDonald’s app, you can get three versions of Happy Meals, all each come with one toy. There is the Hamburger ($3.99 before tax), 4 Piece Chicken McNugget ($4.69 before tax) or the 6 Piece Chicken McNugget ($5.19 before tax) meal option.
We went out to our local McDonald’s to find out which ‘The Super Mario Bros. Movie’ Happy Meal toys we would get.
McDonald’s is also offering a free activity sheet based on “The Super Mario Bros. Movie.”
On the Happy Meal website, McDonald’s showcases all of the toys, and each of their simple, yet movable, functions.
