NEW YORK, Dec. 12, 2012 // PRNewswire // - Starting December 14, the monstrously popular kids hit, Moshi Monsters will invade McDonald's restaurants throughout North America for a Moshi Monsters Happy Meals promotion. The special program will give fans from coast-to-coast a chance to get their hands on exclusive Moshi Monsters toys for four weeks during the holiday season.
One of eight different colorful characters from the Moshi Monsters universe will be featured in every McDonald's Happy Meal, including an all-new, top-secret mystery Moshling to be unveiled as part of the month-long promotion. The collectible figures (exclusive to McDonald's) will include fan favorites Katsuma, Poppet and IGGY along with Furi, Jeepers, Shishi and Luvli, while supplies last.
