Madden Gets Happy At McDonald’s This Month
McDonald’s famous kid’s meals are about to get a taste of the gridiron, as McDonald’s has announced a line of Madden NFL 15-themed toys coming next month.
The 32 toys represent all 32 teams in the National Football League, with each player striking a different football-related pose. The players are not actual players on any NFL team, merely generic-looking players, which means that McDonald’s may not have gotten the full NFL license. Still, the kids who will be receiving these toys could care less about if they’re actually holding Peyton Manning or a guy in a Broncos uniform, so it’s not a big loss.
This comes two months after a Mario Kart line of toys came with the meal, making two video game-themed meals in the last three months. We’re loving the fact that games are getting the spotlight in the Happy Meals, and we hope that games continue to show up in the future. They’d have to remain kid-friendly, but a line of Super Smash Bros mini action figures or Zelda collectibles would make some adults run to the restaurant for a Happy Meal.
The full set of the Madden Happy Meal toys is pictured below, and Madden NFL 15 launches Aug. 26 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3.
