McDonald's Fifteenth Anniversary Happy Meal Toys, 1994

Summary

In 1994, McDonald’s celebrated the 15th anniversary of its Happy Meals with fifteen new premiums, each reflecting a different promotion from the previous years. The premiums interlocked to create a circus train -- harkening back to the first Happy Meal promotion (called Circus Train) in 1979. When the train moved each premium would spin, jump, or rotate on its own little train car.
