Collect, touch, and explore the outdoors with the new Pokémon Outdoors Happy Meals from McDonalds Japan
From now until the middle of July, McDonald's restaurants across Japan will be running a "Pokémon Outdoors" promotion, selling a range of new "Pokémon Outdoors Happy Meals", with a total of eight collectable toys featuring Pikachu and other Pokémon. These Happy Meals range in price from 470~500 Yen ($3.48~$3.71 USD) each.
McDonald's Japan says the toys from these Happy Meals are "engineered to allow children to play and live in a unique, individualistic way," and can be played with indoors and outdoors.
Each Happy Meal purchased over the week of June 17th-23rd will come with a random toy from an initial set of four. During the week of June 24th-30th, a separate set of four toys will be in circulation. After these initial two weeks, while the promotion is still ongoing in July, all toys from both sets will be available, while stock lasts. A "Pokémon Glittery Sticker Sheet" will also be included with purchase of the Pokémon Outdoors Happy Meal over the first weekend of the promotion, June 18th and 19th.
