Row over kids’ toy McD frier


HEALTH experts are furious after McDonald's launched a toy set for kids to pretend they are flipping burgers at a drive-through.
The £59.99 kit has Happy Meals with plastic patties, buns, cheese slices and pickles.

Chips are prepared in a toy deep-frier that makes a sizzling noise. There are also plastic chicken nuggets and desserts in the set sold by Toys R Us.

Tam Fry, of the National Obesity Forum, said: "It's yet another example of big business infiltrating the minds of children."

Toy expert David Smith said: "It's disturbing. It's better than free advertising - they're actually making us pay for it."

A McDonald's spokesman said: "It is meant as a fun role-play toy."

Plastic eh? Must taste just like the real thing then. gaah.gif Maybe its designed to make a minimum wage gig seem attractive to children, with the economy in the toilet for the next 20 years minimum wage is all they have to look forward too.

£59.99? blink.gif that's like $110 insane. For a cheap ugly lump of plastic. Sad thing is though people will buy it. They buy their food don't they?
