McDonald’s and Disney have teamed up for years to release collectible Happy Meal toys.

Now, it seems that we may no longer see plastic toys as the company has pledged to significantly reduce the use of plastics in its Happy Meal toys worldwide. Instead, McDonald’s will release items such as 3-D paper-based toys, such as Pokémon trading cards. These items are already beginning to roll out in the U.S. market.
This news comes two years after McDonald’s faced major backlash in the United Kingdom over “environmental concerns”.

Many were wondering if these changes were coming because of the backlash in the United Kingdom, to which Jenny McColloch, McDonald’s chief sustainability officer, noted during a press conference that some changes were made prior to 2019:
“We’ve had innovation in our toys for quite some time,” she said, adding that in some cases the company “started introducing some of these more sustainable materials” as early as 2018. “That said, we’re always listening to our customers and our families, and understanding where we can do better,” she added.

This out-of-state Annual Passholder visits the parks as often as she can. While at the Most Magical Place on Earth, she can typically be found people watching on the Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover, relaxing at Baseline Tap House, snacking on Mickey-shaped foods, or hanging out with her foolish mortals at the Haunted Mansion.
