    Happy Meal DeLorean

    I was over at a friend's place yesterday, and our kids were all playing together with a giant bin of random toys they've got. My son found this one and thought it was kinda cool. I had no idea that McDonalds had done a "Back to the Future" Happy Meal toy in 1991. 20160618_155055.jpg20160618_155106.jpg

    Close. It was actually during the animated series, which came out after Part III. They also had Marty on a hoverboard, and a couple others. Just google happy meal back to the future.

    For years BTTF.com was selling these toys NOS, still in the shrink wrap. They may still have some.

    Didn't those toys get recalled for being dangerous because they shot sparks out of the back?

    I remember reading somewhere that it was just the DeLorean was recalled...Kids were pulling the tires off the car and eating them. EDIT: Found a link

    The train, hoverboard, etc were apparently OK.

    I actually had the display from the store when I was a kid. You can see it on my dresser, with each of the four toys you would get with the Happy Meals.
