McDonald’s Japan Will Offer Super Mario Toys In Happy Meals, We’re Not Jealous At All

Seriously though, can someone please mail us Penguin Mario? Please.

Mario Happy Meal

Getting a toy from a McDonald’s Happy Meal was one life’s awesomest moments as a kid. Face it, the “Chicken” McNuggets were secondary compared to the unbridled joy you felt when tearing open the plastic packaging on whatever Hot Wheel they were giving away that month. Starting November 22, lucky customers of McDonald’s Japan can re-live that joy, when they start giving away these super-rad Super Mario toys!

McDonald’s Japan will be offering eight different mega-kawaii Super Mario toys with their Happy Meals, and each one comes with an individual sound effect; these include the Mario-hitting-a-block noise, the getting-sucked-into-a-pipe noise, and the jumping-onto-the-flag noise. You can also pick up Peach, Yoshi, and other Mario iterations (including my personal favorite: Penguin-suit Mario!)

If you happen to be in Japan and can pick these up, we’re totally not jealous of you. That’s cool. You have fun with those, and we’ll just be over here, playing with our stupid NFL Happy Meal toys.
