26 Best Happy Meal Toys From The 90s

There is no way to describe the excitement that came as a kid when your parents took you to McDonalds.

It was pure adrenaline. Do I get the nuggets or the burger this time? Cheeseburger? Milkshake? The options were endless.

But perhaps the best part was the uncertainty about which toy you'd be getting. Was it part of a movie franchise? Or was it a generic McDonalds toy? DOESN'T MATTER, I WANT THEM ALL!

We put together a list of the best Happy Meal toys from the 90s and it hit us with a giant wave of nostalgia.
