Tell McDonald's: No Clobberin' Time for Preschoolers
It’s hard to believe, but McDonald’s Happy Meal toys have hit a new low.
The fast food giant’s latest giveaway for preschool boys features eight Marvel comic action figures, including The Human Torch, a man engulfed in flames, and The Thing, which menacingly roars “IT’S CLOBBERIN’ TIME!” at the press of a button.
It’s bad enough to use junk toys to sell children on junk food. But now, for preschool boys, a so-called happy meal at McDonald’s features the horrifying spectacle of a man on fire and a menacing figure that explicitly spurs them to violence.
Please take a moment to tell McDonald’s CEO Jim Skinner to immediately end this Happy Meal promotion.
