Like pretty much all ‘80s babies, my first clothes and toys were of Snoopy: The first sleeveless top I remember owning is a white one with Snoopy on one side. One of the first toys my uncle gave me when he came home after a long time in the US was a Peanuts book with a matching cassette tape of songs and the characters talking.
Fast-forward to 2016, and today’s kids are getting acquainted with the well-loved comic strip characters created by Charles M. Schulz in 1950, not just in the Snoopy and Charlie Brown: The Peanuts Movie (now showing in cinemas), but also in McDonald’s Happy Meal toys. Collect all ten cute toy designs, each with a unique feature:
Charlie Brown: Push the signature zigzag design on his back to hear sound chips from Snoopy and Charlie Brown: The Peanuts Movie.
Lucy: Press her bow to activate sound chips from the movie.
Flying Ace Snoopy: Move along Snoopy in his classic red doghouse.
Peppermint Patty: Pull her back and her sled zooms forward.
Ice Cleaning Woodstock: Push him along and he spins in his driver’s seat.
Schroeder and Snoopy: A red button on the side activates Snoopy to spin on top of Schroeder’s piano.
Spinning Snoopy: He spins magnetically under Woodstock’s nest.
Charlie Brown and Snoopy Bobble: Tap Charlie Brown’s head and they bobble and wiggle as they hug.
Linus: Pull his blanket away and he shakes.
Sally and Snoopy: As the sled is pushed forward, Snoopy rocks from side to side.
Peanuts fans, kids and adults alike, can complete the Snoopy and Charlie Brown Happy Meal toys from all McDonald’s stores nationwide now until February 14, 2016.
