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.
1. Inspector Gadget
I ended up with about 5 watches, a claw arm, and nothing else.
2. McDino Changeables
The sneakiest dinosaurs ever.
3. Tiny Toons Flip Cars
It was basically two toys in one.
4. Batman Car Figures
The trickiest part was finding that front piece after it inevitably shot off into oblivion.
5. Potato Head Kids
So many career choices to be had.
6. Yo Yogi
These things could FLY!
7. FUNdamentals Food Figures
Odd that McDonlads was promoting "healthy eating" but whatever.
8. Bobby's World
Where is his tricycle???
9. Amazing Wildlife
Clearly the tiger and the turtle were the best.
10. Spiderman Figures
So realistic, I feel like I'm IN the movie.
11. Disney Masterpiece Collection
The best toys and I'm willing to physically fight anyone who disagrees.
12. Muppet Treasure Island
Ideal for bath time and/or literally every other time of the day.
13. Babe Plushies
An iconic toy for an iconic movie.
14. Mighty Ducks Sliding Pucks
The only way to make hockey even better is adding ducks to it.
15. Sky Dancers
Hopefully you didn't shoot yours into the fire place.
16. Little Mermaid Floating Toys
The fanciest toy you'll ever receive next to french fries.
17. Hercules Action Figures
Hercules all day, every day.
18. Tamagotchi Keychains
I can't even begin to describe the nostalgia feels with this one.
19. McDonald's Animal Pals
Different than animal plushies and MUCH more coveted.
20. Tarzan Action Figures
Are you sensing the Disney theme?
21. Lion King II stuffed Toys
What happened to their faces?
22. Space Jam Plush Toys
I would still be thrilled to get one of these today.
23. Mini Furbies
Somehow creepier than the real thing.
24. 101 Dalmatians Figures
They had literally all the puppies but sweater puppy is obviously the cutest.
25. Halloween McNugget Buddies
Is that green one in the back Guy Fieri?
26. Teeny Beanie Babies
GIVE ME ALL OF THEM. NOW. FORGET THE BURGER AND FRIES (just kidding give me those, too.)
