Having grown up on the classic “Peanuts” comic strip and the assorted wonderful animated specials over the years I was happy to see the fast food chain McDonald’s offering up a collection of figures based on the new “The Peanuts Movie”. Based on the poster below you can see that there are twelve of these figures in all and with my recently submitting the paperwork for the 2016 Toy Fair I have nothing but fun on my mind at the time. For those keeping a healthy mind and diet, they should know that the Happy Meal is not all that compromising to the diet every once in awhile and they now let you swap apple slices and a yogurt for a dessert and a juice instead of soda. As long as you keep a solid regimen of activity the little burger and fries you get with this package will not ruin your waistline. Just keep moving and I’m saying it like this since I see no less than five of these figurines that I want to have as decoration on my media command station. Charlie Brown is nothing less than classic to me and these are gender crossing items as well which means both boys and girls can enjoy them. Given the nature of the collecting public and this sort of thing being offered you readers might very well find me discussing future promotions like this to offer up in our Toy related topics. Which ones are striking your fancy from the poster below?
As I grew up on all of these classic shorts starring Charlie Brown and his friends, I just had to do a broadcast that announced how “The Peanuts Movie” is opening up in theaters near you.
Premise: Snoopy goes up against his nemesis, the Red Baron, while Charlie Brown tries to win the affection of the Little Red-Haired Girl, who has just moved to the neighborhood. It is set to be the fifth full-length feature film to be based on the comic, and the first feature film based on the characters in 35 years. The film will commemorate the 65th anniversary of the comic strip, and is scheduled to be released on November 6, 2015. The film sees Charlie Brown go on a life-changing quest
