Buger King Informative - No Spider Man Toys - Kids Meal Toy

Review by ZachsMom on 2004-08-02
GARDENDALE, ALABAMA -- I took my children to Burger King drive thru. They were so excited about the Spider Man toys in the kids meals that has been advertised on television.. I ordered the kids chicken tenders meal for them both. When we got home they was not a Spider Man toy in the bag. But they was a small toy of something else...My children were very disapointed and my youngest cried..I think if a Burger King runs out of the toy they advertise that they should tell them before they order a Kids Meal...But the food was fresh and hot. And the service was good.

Well, at least you have two less pieces of crap laying around the house or car.

So take the kid to Toys R Us, and buy them a real toy. Geez!

ZachsMom, are you for real. You waste peoples time by reading this. It was probably listed as "limited time offer", which means, for you to get a life.

"my youngest cried" don't make me vomit. Like the punk kid is going to be scarred for life.

Hey siffer. When you get out of diapers stop back and let us know. Until then, go spread your garbage somewhere else crybaby.

I can not beleive we are discussing a toy that comes with a meal.

Unfortunetly due to Spidermans popularity the toys are gone! Fast food places are given certain amounts of toys in a series (that is why you see a number issued on some of them) and when they run out-they are gone. Unfortunetly that is how it works~the fast food place has no responsibility to you to tell you anything but maybe replace the toy with a prior issued one from something that wasnt as popular~~

If they run out then they should hang a sign on the door & at the drive thru stating so. What's wrong with being straight forward? They keep the signs up that advertise something they don't have. It's false advertising! If it's no longer available, & never will be, quit promoting it at the store.

Burger King always runs out of toys early. Every time I order a happy meal for my daughter, there is always something else...but she doesn't seem to care

It appears that you lost out. Had they posted a sign indicating they were out of toys, would you have moved on? My guess is, no. That one of your children was reduced to tears is semi-understandable. That his parent has been reduced to airing that to the world is simply sad. Life is full of those big disappointments.

geez, you guys really are ***hole huh?! that poor kid was happy about getting a toy he wanted and didnt get it, and you make fun of him, you need to be totured. and if a restaraunt of ANY kind guarantees or says they have something, they should keep to their word and deliver it or get more of it!! or make a new commercial that doesnt advertise toys with the meal! get the dildos out of your a**es

We need to be what: "totured"???? First, learn to spell....then learn to insult common sense. You'll find that life treats you better if you'll follow that simple bit of advice.

zakk, you need to learn that people, as well as you, do make typos in their lives, get a clue. and then you need to learn to stay out of my business or stop reading what i write and shut up. i dont care what you think or say, so give it up. insulting is easy in this place, look you've proven that so well.

Death, I'll stay out of your business when you stop airing it on a public board--you moron. If you want your business to be private, then I suggest that you keep it private. Until then, go find a cause other than McDonalds to take upon yourself...please.

anyone who advertisizes a certain item, is always at the mercy of the manufacturer. unlimited supplies simply do not exist. when did fast food establishments become retailers. go to a store that ran an ad and ran out of the advertised item Can you say "rain-check"
