Yup, you read that right! McDonald’s just recently re-launched the iconic red box of Happy Meal and this mum was invited to be part of the momentous occasion, along with a host of mum bloggers and people from trad media. Dubbed as Happiness In A Box event, it was graced by no less than McDonald’s Chief Happiness Officer Ronald McDonald himself, and Senior Vice President for Marketing, Margot Torres. Celebrity mums Cheska Garcia-Kramer, who tagged his little man Gavin along, and Dimples Romana also joined in.

McDonald’s Happy Meal was launched in the US in 1979 and was also the first meal designed especially for kids. It has become, not just an icon, but a beloved menu item in McDonald’s all over the world by generations of kids and kids-at-heart, as well. Happy Meal is something kids look forward to every time they vist a McDonald’s store, more than just the food and the toy. I am a witness to this as my little man actually look forward to our McDonald’s visit because of the surprise that comes along with each of his Happy Meal. The wonderful experience my child gets and the wide smile it brings on his face is simply priceless!

So, in line with bringing more smiles to more kids, McDonald’s recently made the Happy Meal available for breakfast, too, with favorites such as the 4-piece Mini Hotcakes and Hamdesal, both served with a regular drink and a featured toy. After all, a delicious first meal of the day is a must to start every kids day, may they be getting ready for school or gearing up for one special weekend with the family.

And did you notice that each of your Happy Meal can now come with McDonald’s World Famous Fries, which serve as a perfect addition whether you are ordering Burger McDo, McNuggets, Chicken McDo with rice or McSpaghetti?

Each box, apart from adding the element of surprise, can also be folded into different surprise figures, giving a more exciting meal experience!

we got first dibs on the new Downtown TVC

Apart from being the first to know about the Red Box’s return, we also got first dibs on the new McDo Downtown TVC, that features a child and her grandmother enjoying a visit to McDonald’s together. The good old Downtown song made the TV ad all the more special and heart-warming.

The little man was a bit not-in-the-mood that day, I am just glad we tagged along someone to look after him while mum busied herself. The joy on his face was priceless when I handed him his very first McDonald’s Red Box. He immediately set out to play with his new toy, Optimus Prime! 🙂

To know more about the return of the Happy Meal Red Box, like the McDonald’s Official Facebook Fan Page and follow @McDo-PH on Twitter. Don’t forget to use the hashtag #McDoHappyMeal when sharing your little one’s Happy Meal moments 🙂

There is no better way to spend time with your kids than doing activities they love together with them.

Mom and Me Fun Circuit will happen every Saturday and Sunday of October with each event day featuring three different activities. Hop on a super cool bus and take the weekend off with your little ones, sharing bonding moments as you do sports, cooking and baking, swimming, arts and crafts classes, and more in the stops. Through the variety of activities, get to know more about your kids and maybe even discover what their passions are.
