Available for a limited time only from tomorrow, June 9, until July 20, McDonald’s is encouraging families to laugh until their face hurts, with the hilarious, mischievous fun of Minions.

Each Happy Meal will come in a limited-edition box, featuring mischievous Minions themed activities on the back, to give families a much-needed dose of funny business. McDonald’s will offer a range of paper construction toys and books featuring Gru, Kevin, Stuart, Bob and Otto, dressed up in their classic overalls, disco wear or kung fu get-up.

The Minions promotion will be available as part of McDonald’s ongoing Book or Toy initiative, which gives families the option to choose between a book or a toy with every Happy Meal. Both options are paper-based and 100 per cent sustainable following an announcement last year to remove all non-sustainable plastic from McDonald’s Happy Meals in 2021.
