Free Despicable Me 2 Minion Toys With McDonald's Happy Meal

McDonald's Singapore will be launching a set of 9 Minion collectible toys from the animation, Despicable Me 2 this coming Thursday, 11 July 2013 at 11am.

The Minions are:
1. Tim Giggling
2. Tom Googly Eyes Grabber
3. Dave Gadget Grabber
4. Evil Minion Chomper
5. Stuart Light Up Grabber
6. Evil Minion Noisemaker
7. Tim Giggle Grabber
8. Stuart Babbler Grabber
9. Jerry Breakdancing

The toys will come free with every purchase of a kid's Happy Meal.

Due to the experience from the previous badly-managed Hello Kitty promotion, McDonald's has implemented some guidelines to ensure that everyone would be able to get their Minions this time.


It seems that McDonald's has taken customers' feedback into consideration and created a "deferred fulfilment" website. This site is to allow fans who failed to get the toys during the promotional period to place an order with McDonald's for collection at a later date. 

Do take note that the website will only come into effect from 25 July 2013 till 07 August 2013 and that the redemption will only be fulfilled in December.

Hopefully, this shall deter opportunists from buying the toys in bulk and causing insufficient stocks for genuine collectors. 

From McDonald's Facebook page, there are many fans asking repetitive questions so I thought I might as well consolidate the most frequently asked questions here.

A: The promotion is only for in-store orders (dine-in/takeaway) and will not be available via Drive-Thru, McDelivery and Institutional stores

Q: How many Happy Meals do I have to purchase in order to redeem the three Minions?
A: Each Happy Meal is entitled to ONE Minion therefore, it's three Happy Meals for three Minions

Q: When will the new Minions be launched?
A: Every Thursday at 11am

Q: Will McDonald's restock the out-of-stock Minions from previous weeks?
A: McDonald's have created a "deferred fulfilment" website for this purpose

Q: How does the "deferred fulfilment" website works?
A: According to McDonald's, customers will need to purchase a Happy Meal which will entitle them to select an accompanying Despicable Me 2 toy. Customers can purchase multiple Happy Meals to get several different toys, up to a limit of 1 piece per toy design, and a maximum of 9 designs per customer. Please note that only payment by VISA or Mastercard is accepted. At the end of the ordering process, we print out the confirmation form and present it during redemption. Redemptions for the Happy Meal and toy voucher will be held in the month of December, and more details will be disclosed at a later date. Please note there will be no refunds or cancellations. 

I hope that answer all queries! 

Happy collecting!
