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?
Excellent Idea.I'm a junk-food junkie.And I LOVE McDonald's.
I don't eat the Kid's Meals anymore,but I'd eat them for the toys.
They should be regular pets you can adopt that come with a bonus gift box(Like POTM or Signature Pets).Then you'd have a new pet and bonus prizes.
And they'd get their own classification on Webkinz(Webkinz,Lil' Kinz,Small Fry)
They could bring back Like Cheeky Cat and Original Cheeky Dog,with new psi's.Or very few with the same.
Anyways,your idea is really cool and I love it!
Good Good Good Idea!
What would be REALLY nice is if they were mini e store pets! So kids could get a plush, a estore pet, and a webkinz account if they don't already have one! Cuz it would be useless if you didn't have one. Plus some kids can't afford webkinz, but man can their parents afford mcdonalds or something.

I have read a lot of complaints about the health factor of McDonald's food, but I want to let you all know, you can now order a Snack Wrap for your Happy Meal (instead of nuggets or burgers) and Apple Dippers (sliced apples). If you get the grilled chicken wrap, it is quite healthy and GOOD to boot. That is what my boys WANT, they don't care for fries (I certainly do, but that is another matter), and for those of you health-concious people that is a healthy option.
As for whether or not Ganz would make money off it, yes, they inevitably would. I know that since my first webkinz I have purchased MANY more, can't stop myself! And while the ideas for exclusive items are great, I still think a lil' kinz would be better, that would get the accounts started for lower income homes. If Ganz can sell lil'kinz for so cheap in some cases, why not do so for McDonald's? It is possible and would be a money machine for BOTH companies. As for it being McDonald's instead of Burger King or Hardee's, ew to both of those options, and Subway is already expensive, I don't EVER buy kid's meals there and probably still wouldn't if they got the webkinz. JMO.
I think you have a great idea, but a lot of things have to be considered with this. You got Mcdonalds and other fast food places being the blame for our world being obeese. Yes Mcdonalds now offers the snack wrap but its not any healthier than the rest of their food, come on people the chicken is deep FRIED, just like the french fries. As far as subway yes a much better and healthier way to go but yes they are more expensive and I have yet to see subway with such a toy most of the toys are very cheesy not worth paying for that kids meal. Just buy them a regular sandwich. Sorry I used to work for subway and i was never impressed with any of their toys for the kids meal.
Why don't they put them in a bag of apples or oranges or maybe in with a pack of wraps just something healthy from the grocery store that has to be taken home and made at home were families can be together and eat healthier. If they put them in a non see through heat sealed bag and then mark the bag that they will receive their webkinz at time of check out. I don't know I'm just thinking again sorry.....
Well, I personally think that having webkinz in their happy meals or whatever would not be a good idea because you would get a 10-15 dollar toy for the price of like 2.50-3 bucks and that wouldn't be very fair. But I think that it would be a good idea if they put like maybe kinzclips or maybe webkinz bookmarks. But a 10-15 dollar value for the price of 2.50 or so. I see what you want and are trying to say, but it wouldn't really work.
But this is my suggestion.
Ganz could make little plushes, smaller than most lil' kinz about the same size as a kinzclip. And they could be miniture webkinz but come with a code or something that you would take to the webkinzdemo site and then well yeah you would test webkinz out and then at the end or whenever your ''account'' expires then it would bring you to the retailer locater. And then along with having a try-out kinz then the meal should cost a bit more.
Those are just my opinions.
Nobody's ideas or opinions are bad or stupid- just unique.
I hope you like my idea
