Rejoice Mario Kart fans: the newest McDonald’s Happy Meal toys just might be cool enough to outweigh the creepy new mascot.
About a month after the May 30 release of Mario Kart 8, McDonald’s will be rolling out a line of fancy new Mario figures riding bikes, go-karts, and hovercrafts (ooh. . . .). The whole gang is here, including Mario, Luigi, DK, Yoshi, Bowser, Toad, and even Princess Peach.
For girls (because Peach isn’t feminine enough apparently?), there are also Ty Teenie Beanie Boos, mini versions of Ty’s iconic Beanie Babies that, despite their giant anime eyes, will never be as precious as my Princess Diana bear.
Based on promotional images, it’s hard to tell if the go-karts actually go. but according to Nerdalicious, each toy does come with a kid-sized red Mario visor, which is almost as good.
