New Skylanders Toys Coming Soon to a McDonald’s Happy Meal Near You


Skylanders is taking over the world, one junk food brand at a time.

Having already inked deals with General Mills for a new line of fruit snacks and Frito-Lay for a promotional contest this year, Activision is now teaming up with McDonald’s for the second year in a row to feature new collectible Skylanders toys as coveted Happy Meal prizes.

At McDonald’s fast food stops across the United States and Puerto Rico, a collection of eight different Skylanders toys will begin appearing in Happy Meals between March 28th and April 24th. Hungry, hungry Happy Mealers will also receive coupons for $10 off the Skylanders SWAP Force Starter Pack and $1 off a Skylanders game character.

The toy collection includes figures for Chompy, Eruptor, Free Ranger, Freeze Blade, Magna Charge, Prism Break, Rattle Shake and Wash Buckler. Browse the gallery underneath this sentence to see what they all look like.
