If you buy your kid a happy meal. Do you give the toy before or after they are finish eating?

I gave mine before. They would eat and play.

  • We wait until after the meal for the toy and I agree with Zoeyis about genderizing the toys, we started going through the drive through so we could get the toy my daughter wanted without having to ask for a "boy toy" for her and still getting a girl toy when they saw her.

  • Usually after. It is too distracting otherwise.

  • I always try to hide it out of sight until they are done eating otherwise they just want to play with the toy and not eat,lol

  • they get the toy at the same time. It's not an issue with my kids to have it then. Totally agree with the gender thing!! I just get my kids the toy then want... and ALWAYS look in the bag/box before I drive away to make sure they get it right!!

  • When they were really young it had to be after or they woudn't eat. Now they are older and would be fine to have it with but we still do after.

  • my kid will get it when they're done eating so their food won't get cold and they'll actually eat. in my opinion that's how it should be.
