McDonald's Lego Happy Meals

In 1984, McDonald's introduced its first Lego Happy Meal promotion. Through this promotion, kids were given a small Lego set to keep them busy while they choked down their cheesburger and fries.

What surprises me most is not that I still have all 15+ pieces from the one Lego set I got from McDonald's. More amazing to me is that I still have the instructions that came with it.

As you can see from the instruction, if I got bored building the truck, I could also build a duck/dog on wheels. Fun.

You'll also find a mail-in coupon for a free Lego set. All you have to do is buy three Happy Meals and $10 worth of Lego products. Sorry, McDonald's. That's not free.
