Few things really capture the essence of our childhood: autograph books, Saturday morning cartoons, a lomo selfie of ourselves in braces, and, of course, the McDonald’s Happy Meal! It was pure happiness in a box—the perfect surprise after acing a Math exam, the best pasalubong from lolo and lola, the favorite merienda with the family during an afternoon at McDonald’s, and the first choice for many kids and kids-at-heart.
Remember when we used to collect the popular Happy Meal toys, like Snoopy and the 101 Dalmatians, and compare our (ahem) acquisitions with our friends? Or how we proudly traded some of our limited edition treasures with each other? Well, now might be a good time to call the gang back up for a reunion because the iconic Happy Meal Red Box is back!
After making the Happy Meal available for breakfast, with favorites such as the 4pc Mini Hotcakes (a spin off the 2pc Hotcakes—perfect for kids!) and Hamdesal, and offering the Happy Meal with a serving of regular fries, the Red Box definitely completes the entire Happy Meal experience! For only Php85, you can already enjoy the Burger McDo, regular fries, regular juice drink and a new toy all with the iconic Happy Meal Red Box! You can also choose from other McDonald's favorites—4pc McNuggets, 1pc Chicken McDo with rice, or McSpaghetti for your Happy Meal. As if its return isn’t amazing enough, the Red Box has playability features! Kids can fold the box into surprise figures they can play with and enjoy with their friends or siblings.
And to complete your ultimate throwback, why not bring out the kid in you for a weekend, and visit the Red Box Project installations. Watch out for the Big Bouncy Happy Meal Box at Market! Market! until October 20, and the Big Splashin’ Happy Meal Box in Eastwood and the Big Colorful Happy Meal Box at the SM Mall of Asia until October 27.
