We all know that if you were a kid getting treated to McDonald’s you were already pretty happy, but then you got a toy with your meal and things couldn’t get any better. Mickey D’s officially implemented the Happy Meal in 1979 and although they had given away toys before, this now meant there would be new toys in constant rotation and different ones for each theme, so you just had to keep coming back for more. Admittedly the ’80s saw some wicked Happy Meal toys but the ’90s definitely had the best. This list won’t only take you on a trip down memory lane but you won’t believe how many of these were some of your favorite toys even though they came as a side-piece to your hamburger meal. We’re definitely lovin’ it.
12. Berenstain Bears Books (1990)
If you grew up in the ’90s and didn’t learn at least some of life lessons from a Berenstain Bears book, then you didn’t learn life lessons properly. Definitely not the most exciting toy but Happy Meals were awesome and so were the Berenstain Bears so win-win.
