Beanie Babies Coming Back To Happy Meals

Looking Back

by Edgar A. Guest

I might have been rich if I'd wanted the gold
instead of the friendships I've made.
I might have had fame if I'd sought for renown
in the hours when I purposely played.
Now I'm standing to-day on the far edge of life,
and I'm just looking backward to see
What I've done with the years and the days that were mine,
and all that has happened to me.

I haven't built much of a fortune to leave
to those who shall carry my name,
And nothing I've done shall entitle me now
to a place on the tablets of fame.
But I've loved the great sky and its spaces of blue;
I've lived with the birds and the trees;
I've turned from the splendor of silver and gold
to share in such pleasures as these.

I've given my time to the children who came;
together we've romped and we've played,
And I wouldn't exchange the glad hours spent
with them for the money that I might have made.
I chose to be known and be loved by the few,
and was deaf to the plaudits of men;
And I'd make the same choice should the chance
come to me to live my life over again.

I've lived with my friends and I've shared in their joys,
known sorrow with all of its tears;
I have harvested much from my acres of life,
though some say I've squandered my years.
For much that is fine has been mine to enjoy,
and I think I have lived to my best,
And I have no regret, as I'm nearing the end,
for the gold that I might have possessed.

If you’re looking for something to clog your arteries, yet fill your heart with nostalgia, we have exactly what you need right now…


Our beloved McDs is bringing back beanie babies in their iconic happy meals in honor of the 40th anniversary of the happy meal, and we couldn’t be more excited and ready right now to relive our glory days.

Not only will these throwback anniversary happy meals be providing beanie babies for a limited time,  but also My Little Pony, Hello Kitty and Tamagotchi toys.


If you can’t make it to McD’s in time for some reason – well then you’re not completely out of luck as these toys can be ordered on Amazon or Ebay. But trust us – it’s worth making the time for, and you also won’t want to miss out on those crispy chicken nuggets.
