“Since the Happy Meal was introduced on the menu, it quickly became synonymous with our brand,” said Steve Easterbrook, McDonald’s CEO. “Today, this iconic red box creates delicious, lasting memories for billions of families annually across the world.”
The Happy Meal was first introduced as a Circus Wagon Happy Meal in June of 1979. The early versions of the Happy Meal featured a decorative box including various toys, such as a spinning top and McDonaldland character erasers. Through the last 40 years, the Happy Meal  has expanded to more than 38,000 restaurants in more than 100 countries around the globe —with the iconic toy still a beloved staple—serving as a symbol of surprise, playfulness and fun.
“Parents tell us how fondly they recall their favorite toys,” said Colin Mitchell, McDonald’s Senior Vice President, Global Marketing. “So, unboxing the Surprise Happy Meal together creates a real moment of bonding with their children. We hope these toys are something that they will treasure and remember.”

Families worldwide can collect one of the 15 iconic toys in the Surprise Happy Meal:
