Mario is marching into McDonalds


Nintendo UK has teamed up with McDonald’s to encourage children to get active with a Happy Meal promotion featuring some of its most famous characters. Launching in store on the 19th March, the toy inside every Happy Meal will be one of eight Super Mario-themed toys.



The toys will feature characters from the Mario series including Mario, Luigi, Toad, Donkey Kong and the classic Super Mushroom power-up. Four of the toys will be interactive including Mario’s Hovering Coin, Donkey Kong Barrel Projector, a Super Sound Mushroom and Mario’s Warp Pipe Embosser.

The Run, Jump and Power-Up with Super Mario promotion also aims to inspire children to get active using some of Super Mario’s moves. They will be encouraged to run, jump and complete active tasks set out by Mario and friends.

Will you be getting a Mario with your Happy Meal?

@Harley Most people are complaining that Nintendo aren't doing enough advertising. This is one way to get both kids and parents attention.

Sooooo...any idea of the start date for this promo? I think you can just request the counter staff at Maccy D's to sell you a whole set of the the toys in one go. Probably at the cost of 8 happy meals !
