Penguins of Madagascar Toys at McDonalds

The current Happy Meal toys feature characters from Nickelodeon's Penguins of Madagscar. I do not eat meat and even McDonalds fries are not vegetarian, so I am not trying to collect the set, but my mom got one for me and my dad got me two when he took my brother to McDonalds last week. So I have ended up with three of the toys.

I am kind of iffy on whether I think they are cool or not. They definitely look cool and they are great Adelie penguins for my penguin display in my Antarctic bathroom. However, as toys they fail quality wise.

First off the Private Penguin Toy (#7 in the series) is supposed to shoot out water, but it barely gets on little stream out per refill.

Secondly, the Kowalski Flips toy (#5 in the series) does not fit on the thing to flip it and even once you finally get it balanced it does not really flip up much at all.

On the other hand the Rico Disc Launcher (#2 in the series) works great, as it does suction on very well and launches the discs surprisingly far across the room.

Hello and salam to you from Malaysia.

I enjoy reading and looking at photos on your blog. Just wondering if you in any way can help my daughter Alia for our project.

We are postcards collector and it would be lovely if we could add postcards from Antartica in our collections. Do you know someone from there who can do us a favor?

We can be contacted at nuraliakarim@yahoo.com

We will send one in return if there is a mailing address of the sender and also to you.

Hope to hear from you soon.
