The FTC requires me to tell you that I am a brand ambassador for McDonald's of Central Arkansas. But mainly, I talk about McDonald's because I (and my kids) love the place.
Yesterday I went to the doctor (everything looked great!), and after that we took the girls to McDonald's because we had heard Happy Meals now have Shopkins! (You know what Shopkins are, right? If you have a girl ages 4-10, of course you do. If you don't, YouTube it.) Not that my girls actually *needed* any more Shopkins after getting stocked up for Christmas and their recent birthdays... but still, this was a Happy Meal toy we just couldn't resist.
On the way to McDonald's, the girls discussed which new Shopkins they were hoping for, and I told them I had a feeling the toys they would get would be exclusive, only-found-in-Happy-Meal Shopkins. I was definitely right.
The Happy Meal Shopkins are giant versions of the typically quarter-sized toys. But my girls didn't mind at all. They thought it was exciting. And of course they now have a whole new list of (giant) Shopkins they have to mark off and collect.
Each Happy Meal comes with one shopping basket and two Shopkins. Each of my girls got a "Tiara" and then Eden got a "Judy Jumper" and Selah got a "Teenie." They were very cute and the girls were proud.
Shopkins will only be available in Happy Meals until January 18. So hurry and collect yours before they're all gone!
And tell me -- do your kids love Shopkins as much as mine?
