Ewok Bobble Head

I think bobble heads are a little creepy, but I couldn't help but like this little guy:



When it looked like Monday was Fuzzy's last day on earth, her owners bought her a Happy Meal. That cat loves McDonald's French fries! Her Happy Meal came with an ewok, so when I brought dinner to them, they gave me Fuzzy's toy from her meal. It's not like the cat was going to do anything with it!

I have to say that I think McDonald's is either brilliant or evil with this latest marketing scheme. All the Star Wars-loving kids out there will have to eat eighteen Happy Meals in order to collect all the bobble heads. And there are some really creepy ones in the collection!

My little Star Wars guy is one that pestered us a few times about going to McD so he could get a Star Wars toy...we'll only been once or twice since...

You can actually purchase the toys without having to buy a meal. They aren't exactly cheap (somewhere around $1.50, I think) but it's better than having to eat tooo many french fries!

We have boxes full of the Star Wars happy meal toys already, but you know my kids are wanting these, too. And if my youngest can finagle some fries with them, well he is just in heaven. I say they are evil! So parents have to drive to 50 different McD's to try to find all 18!

Oh man you aren't kidding. I can't even count how many Happy Meals we got over vacation, four at a time, one for each of the three kids and then me too. And of course sometimes we ended up with four of the same bobble head. I love the Yoda one.
