South Korea Mario Happy Meals

16 Jun, 2014

Following the release of Mario Kart 8 for Wii U, Nintendo and McDonalds partner to distribute Mario toys in Happy Meals. The Happy Meals are set to include one of the eight different toys. The toys run out in less than a day: Locations have lines stretching outside or in upstairs areas, and sell out quilckly. Signs offer to buy customers burgers if they purchase the Happy Meals only for the Nintendo toys. Some individuals, however, are buying the toys to re-sell them online. To discourage this behavior, various Korean websites will place members on a 30-day ban if they attempt to resell the toys.
