Go on, admit it. You're with friends here. When fast food chains run video game promotions, including game-related toys with their child-sized value meals, you order an extra meal for yourself just to get the toy. Or perhaps you're more brazen, buying the toy outright to add to your collection
. It's perfectly fine to admit you have a problem. We won't judge.
If so, you'll be happy to know that Wendy's is hitching its Kids' Meals onto the coattails of Krome Studios and Amaze Entertainment's The Legend of Spyro: The Eternal Night
, offering a set of five toys based on the latest in the miniature dragon's trilogy of games. The trinkets run the usual gamut of weirdness, including a Spyro
-themed game of checkers and a Spyro
keychain, which simply pushes the notion of "toy" beyond all measure of credulity.
As pack-in freebies go, these fall well below that of the competition
, however random seems to be a running theme
with Wendy's these days. To sweeten the deal, each Kids' Meal also includes a $5 off GameStop coupon for any version of The Legend of Spyro: The Eternal Night
, though given the painful experience it was to play the last game this is simply not enough to make us go through the drive thru.
