HOLY POO THAT'S ONLY A MILE FROM MY OLD HOUSE!

If I'm right anyway, it could be another branch. I used to live in Nottingham. Still live in the surrounding area :D

Lucky kid though, especially because it's so close to home :)

"i thought they would be rare or something. but he ate at mcdonalds seven thousand dratting times! think of the fries, he probably ate an acre of potatoes."

Thats not alot for someone like him. People unkowingly eat MickyDz way more than 20 times a month you can average that up to 7000 or more in around 4-6 years. When you think about it 7000 trips in that year span isn't that much compared to most people who constantly go to mcdonalds.

true it worked out by the time he was 11 but who listens to a 7 year old and buys $350 worth of happy meal toys? and what kid doesn't play with the toys? i'm 21 and i at least unwrap the stupid things. weird kid...

Right, ok. I did actually read the article but apparently not thoroughly enough. Well I was more interested in seeing what the collection looked like :D

How did he get all those boxes and stuff? I'm assuming they knew someone who worked there. I'm regretting all the random crap I've ever thrown away. Also, I was wondering how the kid could be so skinny eating that much McDonalds, but I guess the dad its most of it.

I was thinkin "he's surprisingly slim considering he's got all those McD's toys"
Then I saw the photo with (who I presume is) his dad in it......that explains that then

When I was a kid we used to go to boot sales (apparantly a fun family activity), and Id always buy happy meal etc toys; sold them a while later and made a really nice profit. Nearly 11k less than that boy though!!!

I still have all of mine! My dad was friends with a McDonald's manager and she used to give me free toys all the time! I've got all of the food transformers, the tiny toon cars, captain planet cars, and stuff like that. I have some of the 101 dalmations, but not all of them. I played with them, though.

But yeah, anyone willing to pay 11K for happy meal toys is out of their drating mind

"I love how no one read the article."

What article?

I remember hearing somewhere or from someone that once new toys come in, McDonalds will give the old in-store displays away for free to the employees or whoever wants them.
Dunno if that's true, but it would explain why the kid/original collector had the full displays. :/

I kept most if not all the toys from when I was a kid. I got them all... even the old Super Mario Brothers Happy Meal toys.

The sweatshop workers who produce millions of those things a year would not have seen 1% of that in their lives.
That makes me kind of sad.

over 7,000 toys....unless those happy meals cost $1 each, he lost quite a bit, granted he got the happy meal too, but he didn't make that much in my mind.
