McDonalds Avatar Happy Meal Toys

From 11 December 2009 until December 31 2009 McDonalds is giving away Avatar happy meal toys in McDonalds restaurants across USA. There are 6 McDonalds Avatar character toys (3 creatures and 3 characters) to collect during the course of the promotion. McDonalds have launched this global campaign to coincide with the hit movie Avatar which is currently taking the world by storm. Rather a surprise from McDonalds given that it has not since 1992 with Batman Returns promoted tie-in toys for a movie rated PG-13.
