I've thought of this a few times. I go to McDonalds A LOT (they're the ones who sign my paycheque - and pay for my Webkinz addiction ) and I get upset when the happy meal toys are lame. I'm cleaning tables and I throw out heaps of lame happy meal toys, because they're just bad. Like cardboard cutouts of Ronald McDonald? Seriously? Remember when happy meal toys used to be fun?
I just don't know how this would work specifically. They obviously wouldn't give out pet adoption toys, so okay, a code for an exclusive prize. That means that a child would either A: already have a Webkinz account, or B: have to go out and buy a Webkinz to get an account. This could work in Ganz's favour - more kids buying webkinz so they can use their small fry toys. But my heart always goes to the less fortunate kids. It's busiest on the night the welfare cheques go out at my store - I suppose that means that all those kids is a cute plushie? I guess there really is no loss here.
It's a good idea, but I doubt it'll happen. Ganz and Webkinz toys are in general kept to smaller, fair-trade shops (the little gift store at the hospital, the privately-owned toystore on Main Street - at least in my experience). McDonalds partners with the likes of Disney and Wal-Mart...
GANZ partnered with Disney for the snowwhite thing, don't forget.
Oh, when the toys used to be fun...*sigh* I remember the neopets. I used to squeal if I got a Shadow or a Starry pet. They were my favorites.
I think it's a great idea! Our local McDonald's had the beanie babies a few months back and my kids loved them. I know my kids wouldn't let me pass a McDonald's without stopping if they had webkinz. It would also bring in a lot of new members ($).
I would so be there once a week for a Small FRy WebKinz!
We eat at McDonald's once a month and have never had a bad meal. We only eat certain foods though, like the healthy ones. The salads and mandarin oranges and chicken. I hope Ganz listens to your great idea!
Wonderful idea, but if they offered that, I either:
1- wouldn't be able to get very many since my parents seem to dislike fast food for some reason
2- would have to buy XXXXXXXXL clothing because I ate too much fast food (I'm already kinda chubby, I don't want to gain more weight )
Now, though, if they had those at Subway (because, as Katie said, Ganz does encourage healthy eating) then... *shoves sub sandwich into mouth and plays with smallfry kinz *
Ohh, I love subway! I'm not sure if people think that GANZ is above that, but I don't think so, I love subway!
I chose the gourmet route for dinner tonight. So while my family and I were sitting in McDonald’s, I could not help but notice the Toy display, and how lifeless it appeared. As stars swirled above my head and cherubs sang in soprano, I had this beautiful revelation of a HUGE opportunity for you Ganz $$$ - a Limited Edition SmallFry Kinz included in each Happy Meal.
The 4 different miniature plushies could be the size of a Kinz Clip (minus the clip) and offered once each week for one month. Instead of the paper hang tag in plastic, the code these SmallFry Kinz plushies have, would be stamped on their Made In China tag and the plushie heat sealed in a plastic bag, therefore eliminating extra overhead (cost.) When the code is entered from each SmallFry Kinz, the customer would receive a special prize in WW.
How would you react to a SmallFry Kinz in a Happy Meal?
OMG my kids would freak - we never eat at McD's other than fries... but i think i could make an exception for that!
