Just last month Nintendo announced that Super Mario will be coming to McDonald’s Happy Meals in the UK.
There will be eight in total that will begin on 19th March, with a Super Mario-themed advertisement campaign joining the meals until 29th April. It’s a good way to get the moustachioed mascot additional exposure and promote the brand, while it’ll come with a message of activity and fun.
The toys will feature classic characters from the Mario series including Mario, Luigi, Toad, Donkey Kong and the classic Super Mushroom power-up. Four of the toys will be interactive including Mario’s Hovering Coin, Donkey Kong Barrel Projector, a Super Sound Mushroom and Mario’s Warp Pipe Embosser.
The Run, Jump and Power-Up with Super Mario promotion also aims to inspire children to get active using some of Super Mario’s moves. They will be encouraged to run, jump and complete active tasks set out by Mario and friends.
