It's Throwback Thursday with these rad Nintendo kids' meal toys

I was always a McDonald's eater as a kid, so I had no exposure to Burger King and the Happy Meal-style toys they packed in their kid's meals. Years later, I still rank Burger King far below Wendy's and above Carl's Jr.--but I can definitely appreciate this Nintendo Superstars line from BK circa 2002. I'm always partial to toys that are also games (go figure), and most of these fit that bill nicely; the Kirby Hungry-Hungry-Hippo game is my personal favorite. You won't find these in BKs nowadays--but a quick trip to eBay should do the trick if they appeal to your Nintendo-loving inner child.
