An ill-fated trip through the local Wendy’s drive through yesterday resulted in room temperature fries, the wrong size drink and confirmation of my children’s suspicions that not all chicken nuggets are created equal. But hey, check out this awesome little arcade building set that came in their kid’s meal.
Wendy’s is pretty good if you visit a good location on the right day. And while I missed both of those targets yesterday, I now have good reason to go back, at least to ask if I can purchase kid meal toys separately. While McDonald’s is busy going around the My Little Pony/Transformers merry-go-round again, Wendy’s is passing out these wonderful little building kits called “Design Your World.”
Featuring whimsically decorated cardboard buildings populated by sticker-laden plastic people, the sets encourage children to engage in some thoughtful, creative play. Failing that, it’s something fun for parents to do while their children are on their iPads.
