Barbie never seems to go out of fashion. Barbie Happy Meals were first offered in 1991 and have reappeared regularly since then, including this year.
1991: McDino Changeables
This Happy Meal featured a set of eight transforming dinosaur-like toys with names like McDino Cone, Big Mac-O-Saurus Rex, and Quarter Pounder with Cheese-O-Saur. There were also toys that didn’t transform for children under three.
1992: Batman Car Figures
This Happy Meal was somewhat controversial as it was a tie-in with the Tim Burton film “Batman Returns,” which was rated PG-13.
1992: Potato Head Kids
The Potato Head Kids featured quite a lineup: Big Chip, Dimples, Lolly, Lumpy, Potato Dumpling, Potato Puff, Slick, Slugger, Smarty Pants, Spike, Spud, and Tulip. Perhaps it won’t come as a surprise to learn that McDonald’s is the world’s biggest purchaser of potatoes.
McDonald’s released a set of six Dinosaurs toys, as well as one for children under 3, in 1993. The toys were hinged and had a button that made them move.
