  • Morning Coffee: Get Mr. Potato Head Halloween Pails at McDonald’s

    For the first time in almost ten years, McDonald’s has brought back Happy Meal Halloween Pails, featuring Mr. Potato Head. They sent me a couple of pails, and I like that they’ll be great for trick-or-treating. Plus, after Halloween, they’ll be great for keeping toys off the floor. There are buckets full of miniatures and action figures all over my house!
