Special Happy Meal Notes

McDonalds sometimes sells boy toys and girl toys in their Happy Meals. The Wizard of Oz promotion is for the girls while the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are the suggested boy toys. Be sure to specify when you order.

For restaurants that aren't stocked with the entire set the release schedule may be like this:

Week 1 March 23 1 Dorothy 2 Glinda
Week 2 March 30 3 Wicked Witch of the West 4 Cowardly Lion
Week 3 April 6 5 Wicked Witch of the East 6 Tin Man
Week 4 April 13 7 Daisy Munchkin 8 Scarecrow

The promotion runs from March 23 until April 19th or while supplies last. Due to the popularity of these toys, I suggest checking in with your local McDonalds often.

Be sure to click photos to enlarge.

Dorothy, the Scarecrow, the Tin Man, and the Cowardly Lion stand at 8" and were introduced late 2006 for the 2007 line. The Scarecrow, Tin Man, and Lion have changed appearance this year to more resemble the lovable characters from the 1939 classic.

The Wicked Witch of the West, Glinda, the Wicked Witch of the East are all 10" and were released in 2006 and are all current styles. The Wicked Witch and Glinda are based on the characters from the MGM film while the Wicked Witch of the East sprang from the fertile minds at the Alexander Doll Company.
The Daisy Munchkin in the 8" size was available for 2 years retired after 2002. A doll in a 5" size was part of the Petite Munchkin Set produced from Fall 2003 until 2005.

Anyone interested in purchasing any of the larger dolls please contact Karen Owens
