LOL. Then the government would go after frozen treats at fast food restaurants and put DQ out of business.

Lol i do not think they would do that. That is totally over the top, way beyond banning a silly toy.

It isn't going to work. All they are doing is, as said, making the kids not want to get the Happy Meal variant, so they will get something more adult orientated in terms of food.

Sorry Kinder Egg; you can't offer a toy inside either, so you will now simply be an empty shell of what you once were

I personally would like to see what the effect it has on the population in the coming years.

Another thought, ban drive thrus. Force people to walk inside

Not have read much of the thread.

When i was younger the only reason i got a Happy Meal was for the Toy. Food didn't fill me up. If the was toy banned I'd get a bigger more unhealthy meal that would fill me up!

LOL so now instead of paying 4 bucks or whatever for a happy meal the kids get 3 double cheesburgers and a drink

It will have zero effect. Parents will still buy their children kid's meals at fast food restaurants.

Hmm, does this mean restaurants can no longer entice children to eat there with placemats and crayons?
