Happy Meals are a convenient lunch option for kids, whether it's grabbing a quick bite while running errands, stopping off on a long car journey or just as a treat. But before you buy you might want to know which toys are at McDonald's right now.

Many of us have fond memories of trips to McDonald's as a child, and over the years the fast food giant has introduced some of the best toys for keeping kids entertained while they're eating, from Minions and Furbys to Disney characters and Frozen toys too. Available for a limited time and often collectable, some Happy Meal toys even go on to become worth a lot of money.

Available for just a fraction of the price of adult meals, Happy Meals contain a choice of fish fingers, chicken McNuggets or veggie dippers with an apple & grapefruit bag, or carrot bag side, and drink options include water, milk, or a Fruit Shoot - plus, the all important toy. Whether McDonald's is your Friday evening ritual or reserved for special occasions, if you've got kids you probably want to know what toys are at McDonald's before you order.
