Think back to your childhood days and you'll possibly recall that going to McDonald's was a rare treat (in more ways than one).

In addition the mouthwateringly unhealthy junk food we got in our Happy Meals, the fast food restaurant had a entire host of pleasing things to not only keep our tiny selves busy, but to help us live our best lives during our short visits there.


The McDonald's we knew and love in the '90s isn't very similar nowadays, unfortunately, many of us will always reminisce how much fun it was back when we were kids. Let's take a walk down memory lane by revisiting 10 of the greatest parts of our childhood tours to McDonald's.

Reminiscence just hit me like lots of bricks. If only there was a way to go back and try all those things one more time.
