Fairy Tale Madame Alexander Dolls at McDonalds

Pambelina mentioned that McDonalds has fairy tale themed Madame Alexander dolls in their Happy Meals right now.  I was unaware since I mostly only eat McDonald's while traveling.  (I love Apple Dippers when I am on the road, I admit, and wish they also had cherry tomatoes like they do in France.)

Anyway, that's the pic and I admit I rather want the Hansel and Gretel dolls.  Which I think have already come and gone so I am probably out of luck except for some crazy eBay pricing. 

The sets, if you couldn't figure them out, are Little Red Riding Hood and the Wolf, Cinderella and Prince Charming, Alice and the Mad Hatter (fairy tale? not really!) and the aforementioned Hansel and Gretel.  I have never been much of a doll person, but I do have an old Heidi doll by Madame Alexander given to me by my grandmother--the same one who nurtured my love of Beauty and the Beast--which she chose for me for obvious reasons. 

And, come to think of it, the Hansel and Gretel resemble my Heidi doll which is why they must appeal to me.  Besides, it's just rare to see Hansel and Gretel themed toys.

I believe these launched last week so there is probably still time to collect these if you want them.  Perhaps I will go get me some Apple Dippers tomorrow and try my luck with Hansel and Gretel.  I haven't hunted fast food toys since Burger King did Teletubbies over ten years ago and Po was a rare commodity... (Long, long story on that one...)


  1. I just got Hansel! If you have no luck, I'll send you mine. And I'll try to get Gretel for you too!

  2. I got Cinderella!
    I got Gretel too!
    Both shall join the ranks of the Oz dolls.
    Love Madame Alexader!
    Love those french fries too!

  3. Love your pretty, pretty blog too!

  4. The things they come up with!!!!

    I wonder if these are possible to get here in Norway. I have a thing for dolls, I must admit.

    Oh I'm so glad you posted this. I love these dolls and got them the last time McDonalds did a promo like this. I like Hansel and Gretel too...and the Mad Hatter. Thanks!
