    If it's literally once a month, no, I don't.

    Who thinks of this crap? McDonald's does. And, why do they add the toy? 'Cause they know it gets kids to ask for Happy Meals which are not healthy choices.

    So? Why is it McDonalds fault that they know how to market for kids? Why aren't the parents of these kids held responsible for letting their kid get fat, and not instilling healthy eating habits? An unhealthy meal every now and then isn't a bad thing, it's not like McDonalds is giving these kids meth. Let the kids have their hamburger, and toy every so often, it won't hurt them.

    yeah, it'd be much better if the kids asked for big macs wouldn't it

    if the parents didn't take their kids to maccas so often, there wouldn't be a problem.

    It pretty much is... We take the girls to Subway far more often than McDonald's -- and yes, sometimes a whole month goes by without our girls going to McDonald's -- I guess that means they are deprived...

    Then again, my girls are already runners... Both won their school races this year...

    I don't really want to get into China politics in this thread, if you don't mind...
    not a comment on politics.. a comment on how easily that crap breaks when you get it home... those toys seldom last as long as the next trip to McDonald's...
