In 1979, McDonald's launched its Happy Meal to the delight of children across the world.  Besides a child's size meal, it contained a small toy. McDonald's estimates 1 billion Happy Meals are sold globally each year and for a few days this month, you can re-live those days when a Happy Meal brought you happiness.  The fast food chain announced that in honor of the 40th anniversary of the first-ever Happy Meal, McDonald's is launching a special-edition line of retro Happy Meal toys. Miniature Hot Wheels cars, Beanie Babies, and Power Ranger action figures, all of which were real Happy Meal toys in the 1990s, have been revived for a limited time. The collectibles also include toys dating back to the earlier years of the Happy Meal's history. The McNugget gang—plastic chicken nuggets dressed as a cowboy, fireman, and mail carrier—originally debuted in the 1980s, and are part of the new promotion. But the retro Happy Meal toys are for a very limited time as teh promotion runs November 7th (tomorrow) through Veteran's Day (November 11).
