Burger King Toys Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs

Burger King in conjunction with Sony Pictures Animation's new movie Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs has started its promotion of 8 kids meal toys based on the movie. The Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs toys will be available from Burger King restaurants throughout North America over 4 weeks. The promotion of the Burger King kids meal toys which lasts until October 11 is timed to coincide with the opening of the movie in theaters in the USA on September 18.

The Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs movie based on the book tells the story of young inventor Flint Lockwood who wants to create something to improve life for all. Burger King, along with the toy release, is supporting this theme by promoting the Feeding America campaign, an initiative to raise awareness of childhood hunger. Kids can become "Hunger Helpers" and earn virtual rewards for Crown donations by playing an online game at ClubBK.

What does Steve say? We haven't seen the film and it's getting on our nerves.

Steve has 3 phrases. Hard to tell what he is actually saying though. I think its "food", "Steve" and something else I can't be sure of

What specific toy is the Monkey Thought Translator? Is it a real toy? or mix of some?

I think the monkey toy from BK is saying "Steve....Hungry....Food".
Just my opinion.

The Wizz said...

Thanks for that. Press the button to hear the monkey talk is pretty much all he does.
