The lights are on
Skylanders fans should be really happy next time they order a Happy Meal at McDonald's. For the second year in a row, the fast food giant will be stocking figures based on Activision's epic game that brings toys to life.
From March 28 through April 24, Happy Meal purchasers at participating McDonald's restaurants in the United States and Puerto Rico will get a one of eight unique toys inspired by Skylanders Swap Force as well as coupons for $10 off the Skylanders Swap Force Starter Pack and $1 off a Skylanders character. The figures are based on characters such as Chompy, Eruptor, Free Ranger, Freeze Blade, Magna Charge, Prism Break, Rattle Shake and Wash Buckler. Get a look at the toys in the gallery below.
Our TakeI don't play Skylanders and I rarely eat at McDonald's, but this still seems like a cool little promotion. Gamers finally have an excuse to order a Happy Meal...not that we needed excuses before.
