As previously spotted on the McDonalds website, Nintendo UK has confirmed through a press release that Mario and his buddies will be paying a visit to every kid who likes to eat out at McDonalds. The promotion named The Run, Jump and Power-Up with Super Mario will bring different sets of toys along with every Happy Meal starting one week from today.
The official press release that has announced the partnership and the Super Mario toys license to McDonalds says that starting from March 19, 2014 the promotion will present the customers with a toy based on one of the eight characters of Super Mario:
The toys will feature classic characters from the Mario series including Mario, Luigi, Toad, Donkey Kong and the classic Super Mushroom power-up. Four of the toys will be interactive including Mario’s Hovering Coin, Donkey Kong Barrel Projector, a Super Sound Mushroom and Mario’s Warp Pipe Embosser. The Run, Jump and Power-Up with Super Mario promotion also aims to inspire children to get active using some of Super Mario’s moves. They will be encouraged to run, jump and complete active tasks set out by Mario and friends.
Other than the toys and the activities that McDonalds will offer, the food chain will also start an advertisement campaign across all the restaurants until April 29 2014.
How many of you, or the kids around you, are fans of the McDonalds Happy Meal? I am guessing some of you would want to get your hands on the toys and might just order the meal for the sake of it, right?
