When you were a kid and your parents said that you were going out to eat, most kids probably really hoped that meant McDonald's. I mean what kid didn't want a Happy meal and especially the toy that came with (let's be honest, that's the only real reason we wanted those). Well, what if I told you that it's the Happy Meal's birthday this year?

Yes, even a kid's favorite meal gets a birthday. The McDonald's Happy Meal will turns 40 this year and they are doing something kind of cool to celebrate. McDonald's will be bringing back the retro toys from their Happy Meals. That means they are bringing back 17 classic McDonald's Happy Meal toys including the cowboy, fireman, and mailman McNuggets, the hamburger that turns into a robot, Grimace, Hamburglar, a Power Ranger, "Space Jam" Bugs Bunny and even Patti the Platypus Beanie Baby.

Of course there are a few more but get ready to be nostalgic when you see these toys. The catch? They will only be available from November 7th through the 10th. After that you have to go pay a lot more money to buy them off Ebay.

Happy 40th McDonald's Happy Meal!
