The Happy Meal toys that transform! Remember these??

Vintage McDonalds Fast Food Transformers Toys Lot Chicken McNuggets Big Mac Hotcakes Frenc fries these were my favorite happy meal toys ever!

Cap guns; remember the rolls of paper  caps you loaded into these things; sometimes we would take them out and strike the black dots to get the percussion sound....
