Why? He just likes to hump peoples hands. And use his mouth as a ball holder.

Actually, I see your point.

I really want the Mario ball after thinking about it. I have a Sonic ball just like it that was my favorite toy since I was a kid, and it would go great with it.

Lucky! That's the only one I want but so far I got the hammer, both different Yoshis, and a DOUBLE of one of the Yoshis. I just want that Mario ball!

If I don't get it by the end of the promotion, will you trade???????

Took my boys a couple of days ago. I'd like to have a "chat" with the marketing geniuses who thought an inflatable hammer would be a good idea.

Just let me say that a 20 kids with inflatable hammers crammed into a play structure doesn't end well.

"Wahhhhh - he HIT me!"

Got the hammer and balls for my kids at lunch today. I fully expect to come home to find my wife bludgeoned into unconsciousness.

Nevermind mel0 I got lucky and found a Mario ball today. That's it for me and McD's for about a year.

I got my hammer. Boy McDonald's sure has changed since I last went there, this one was completely renovated, the seat layout was very untraditional, the lights were dimmer, there was a waterfall inside, the tiles weren't cheap, they were stone colored, and it was very clean. And since when do they sell brownie sundae's there?! Crazy!

for those of you going 50 times to get a certain toy and buy a million happy meals and gettting doubles, you know you can just buy the toy for $1.50 (and choose it), right?

Not all McDonalds will have all 6 available though. 4 times me and my girlfriend have gone, and we've been lucky to get 4 different toys. When we went last night and got the mario ball, we asked which toys they had and that was the only one.

Yeah I made sure I asked, but each time they said "No mario ball, just yoshi" I couldn't refuse.
