  • Giveaway: McDonald’s Happy Meal 30th Birthday Ty Teenie Beanie Babies Set

    Did you know the McDonald’s Happy Meal is celebrating its 30th birthday? No wonder I feel like Happy Meals have always been a part of my life – it’s because they have!

    To celebrate this milestone, McDonald’s commissioned a survey to find the Top 10 “Happiest Cities for Families” in America, and recently announced the results at a birthday celebration last Friday in the “Happiest City” – Minneapolis – with Ronald McDonald, “Happiness Ambassador” (and Olympic Gold Medalist) Shawn Johnson, and a larger-than-life Happy Meal box-shaped cake. (To no one’s surprise, Los Angeles is not among the top 10 cities.) Visit the new Happy Meal Birthday website to test your Happy Meal trivia knowledge and download resources to create the ultimate birthday party.

    In honor of the 30th Birthday of the Happy Meal, McDonald’s has brought back one of its most popular Happy Meal toys ever – the Ty® Teenie Beanie Babies® plush toys. You can get one of the 30 different Teenie Beanie Babies with your Happy Meal purchase through August 13th.

    And best of all, one lucky CFO reader will win a complete set of the 30th Birthday Ty® Teenie Beanie Babies® plush toys, courtesy of McDonald’s!
