Collect Hamburglar, Grimace, Birdie, and Cactus Buddy toys from the CPFM x McDonalds collaboration
Get ready, a brand new menu item will be coming to McDonald’s through the CPFM x McDonalds collaboration next month. From Monday, October 3 to Sunday, October 30, customers at McDonald’s will be able to order the Cactus Plant Flea Market Box that comes with one of four unique toys.
The CPFM x McDonalds collaboration’s Cactus Plant Flea Market Meal isn’t just a nicer way to say “adult Happy Meal”, these toys mark the first time in about 20 years where we get to revisit the iconic characters from McDonaldland. The Hamburglar, Grimace, and Birdie are all back along with a newcomer named Cactus Buddy, a character that was designed specifically for the CPFM x McDonalds mashup.
CNN reported that McDonald’s is aiming to appeal to older customers with the new Cactus Plant Flea Market Box. “We’re taking one of the most nostalgic McDonald’s experiences and literally repackaging it in a new way that’s hyper-relevant for our adult fans,” said Tariq Hassan, McDonald’s USA chief marketing and customer experience.
As for the food options available in this adult Happy Meal, there’s no need to worry about a new McCactus or even the grudging McPlant that’s somehow still in existence. The Cactus Plant Flea Market Box comes with the choice of either a Big Mac or a 10-piece Chicken McNuggets. Also included are fries and a drink.
Customers who purchase the Cactus Plant Flea Market Box on the McDonald’s App will instantly be entered for a chance to win free, exclusive merchandise every week that features custom made tees and hoodies, a Grimace Chair, and more from the CPFM x McDonalds collaboration. Once these adult Happy Meals are available to purchase across the nation on October 3, McDonald’s will start to offer more goodies on their website.
