Do you remember those carefree days of childhood when birthdays meant a trip to McDonald’s? Well, get ready to relive those cherished memories because McDonald’s is throwing a nostalgic celebration for none other than our beloved purple pal, Grimace!
With a limited-time Game Boy Color game, a special meal, exclusive merchandise, and a charitable initiative, McDonald’s is bringing back the ’80s and ’90s in full swing. Let’s dive into the details and explore this exciting blast from the past!
Grimace: A Fuzzy Purple Icon
Grimace, that fuzzy purple character from Grimace Island, became an instant favorite during McDonald’s marketing campaigns in the ’80s and ’90s. Known for his playful personality and love for shakes, Grimace quickly won the hearts of McDonald’s fans worldwide. And now, after all these years, Grimace is taking center stage once again as McDonald’s celebrates his birthday in style.
The Grimace Birthday Meal
Starting June 12, McDonald’s fans can indulge in the Grimace Birthday Meal, a special treat designed to honor our purple pal. The meal includes the choice of a Big Mac or 10-piece Chicken McNuggets, served alongside the fries. But the star of the show is the limited-edition purple shake, inspired by Grimace’s iconic color and sweetness. It’s a perfect way to savor the nostalgia and enjoy a unique culinary experience.
Grimace’s Birthday Game: A Retro Gaming Experience
As part of the celebration, McDonald’s has collaborated with Krool Toys® to create an exclusive Game Boy Color game called Grimace’s Birthday. This game takes players on a journey through classic McDonald’s birthday scenes as Grimace races to find his pals, including Birdie and Hamburglar, all in pursuit of cutting his birthday cake. The game is available to play for free on desktop and mobile.
