You won’t just be playing Mario Kart 8 on your Wii U. Soon, you’ll be enjoying it in real life too. That is, if you stop by McDonald’s in July 2014. Turns out, the next assortment of toys will contain our favorite, Nintendo racers. Rejoice!
There will be seven Mario Kart 8 toys at McDonald’s. You can get Mario, Luigi, Peach, Bowser, Toad, Yoshi, and Donkey Kong. That’s pretty much every major character in the game, though it would have been nice to have a Rosalina toy too. All the toys will have McPlay Power abilities, which means they’ll work with the McDonald’s Happy Meal Android and iOS apps.
To get one, you’ll have to either buy a Happy Meal or ask for the toy alone. If you’re lucky and at the right store, you might even only pay $1.50 per toy. it varies from store to store. I’d check maybe next week or the week after, just in case they show up early.
Make sure you ask for the Mario Kart 8, or boy’s toy, though. Ty Teenie Beanie Boo’s toys will also be available during the time period, and you’ll want to be sure you get a racer and not a plushie. Not that they aren’t charming, but the Mario Kart 8 toys are just so much better!
