15 Happy Meal Toys From The ’90s That Actually Blew

Let’s be honest, not all Happy Meal Toys were created equal.

The Lion King II: Simba’s Pride Plush Toys

The Lion King II: Simba's Pride Plush Toys

Year released: 1998

Appeal: Duh, they were Lion King toys! Plus you were probably watching The Lion King sequel on a constant repeat — even if deep down you knew it sucked.

Why it blew: Aside from the fact that they were plush and not actual figures, these toys looked NOTHING like the characters from the Lion King (looking at you, Timon) and more like something from a direct-to-video rip-off movie.

Year released: 1999

Appeal: They were cuter and cheaper Furbys.

Why it blew: They were cheap for a reason: ‘cause they did NOTHING.

Halloween Pails

Halloween Pails

Year released: 1991, 1992, 1994 (previously released in the mid-‘80s as well.)

Appeal: This ~unique~ pail was a way to set yourself apart from everyone else who was carrying the standard plastic pumpkin pail.

Why it blew: The pail’s smaller size only allowed you to collect about a quarter of the candy you would normally get. Also the cheap plastic handle could not support the weight of the bucket and would break mid-way through trick-or-treating.

101 Dalmatians Figures

101 Dalmatians Figures

Year released: 1996

Appeal: Aside from the Disney movie tie-in, there were 101 of them to collect!

Why it blew ‘Cause there was 101 of them!!! It was practically impossible to collect all of them.
