Default The Coolest Happy-Meal tie in of all time?!

Check out this article about the Mario Brothers 3 promotion, super entertaining!

http://dinosaurdracula.com/blog/supe...-3-happy-meal/


Come on, who remembers having a bunch of these toys? These things were the bomb!







That's some epic Nintendo nostalgia in those promos. So rad.



I personally have the Goomba and the Luigi in my collection. Ladies, line up!

he already gave us these fantastic threads:

"5 dopes things from your room" (spoiler, toys)
"Toys R Us bankrupt"
"Anyone remember these toys"

and my personal favorite:

"Check out this guys collection of rare packets of sealed Kool-Aid"


how hard do you expect him to try?? pressuring kids can have horrible outcomes. don't pressure our resident forever-kid, please, think of his parents and what they will have to deal with.

They released several Mario lines over the years. The most recent ones are much better made than what fuzz posted.

Mario looks incredibly uncomfortable with his predicament.

We had a mega drive so we were a Sonic household, don’t know if they ever had Sonic happy meals but I think probably not.

I was a Sega/Sonic kid too. We even had a Sega Saturn when everyone else on the planet had PS1/N64.

Kind of explains why I turned out the way I did.

While you're right, and those are cool toys, they didn't have nearly as much of an impact as this promo did.

In 1990, Mario Brothers toys were surprisingly far and few between. Nintendo for some reason didn't really capitalize on that market. Before the happy meal, Nintendo released toys like this



So for Nintendo obsessed kids to get cool Mario toys like those was a big deal!

Ahhh, a simpler time indeed!
