Vintage Mcdonalds Happy Meal Toys in Singapore

15 October 2009

Today I have the honor to have BeachSky to share with us some of his personal collection of Singapore Mcdonalds Happy Meal Toys from 1980s to 1990s. This would be a walk down the memory lane for some of us.

In the late 1980s, Mcdonalds had some brilliant marketing to have some Lunar new year Happy meal toys and here are some of them.

Ronald McDonald Lunar New Year greetings.


In the Chinese Zodiac year of the Dragon (1988), Mcdonalds offer four Dragons with an auspicious names for the Chinese collectors. If my memory served me well, the four dragons names were 富贵吉祥 (Wealth, Prosperity, Lucky and Auspicious). Don't asked me which is which in the picture tho...

Update: Thanks to Juliana, The 4 dragons are 富 (yellow), 贵(blue), 吉 (green) & 祥 (purple).


Remember the Muppet Babies? They have their own cartoons in the late 80s. I remember everyone of these in the series had a vehicle. Some of them missing in photo was Kermit the frog which is my favorite.


Chip Chip Chip & Dale! Rescue rangers was a spinoff cartoons that made it in McDonald Happy meal toys. Vehicles seems popular to kids.


Here's Garfield on vehicles too!


And Fraggle Rock by Jim Henson on vehicles.... I will always remember about "Dear nephew Gobo...." where the uncle went outerspace which is our world amusing.


As for these below was the only one that BeachSky and I are unsure of. They look like the singing potatos of Mcdonalds before they become fries kids to me. BeachSky think there were the Nuggets... maybe they got over cooked or season with BBQ sauces? LOL


Updates: Here's is the answer to my question.


If you know anymore information on them, do comment so that we will all know the truth. Feel free to comment if you have more vintage Mcdonalds toys to share.

Once again thanks to BeachSky for sharing his collection with us here on Openthetoy. :D

Hi LEon,

The last photo shows the "singing McNuggets". They came with hats and belts and if I recall correctly, their overall dressing were like cowboys and cowgirls.

The 4 dragons are indeed called 富贵吉祥 - 富 (yellow), 贵(blue), 吉 (green) & 祥 (purple) :)

Does BeachSky want some more of these 80's McDs toys? I've got a set to donate. They are the Ronald McDonalds friends and their playground set. Sorry no photo yet though...
