I'm sure a lot of people remember as a kid going to a place like McDonalds or Burger King and begging their parents for a Kids Meal or Happy Meal. If you were like me it was mostly for the toy, especially if it was related to a video game (I still have a couple of the Super Mario Bros. 3 and Sonic the Hedgehog 3 toys from all those years ago). Video game toys still make their way to kids meals now and then, and starting December 1st through February 29th kids can enjoy Sonic the Hedgehog toys at Arby's.
As part of their Game On Kids Meals, kids can get one of eight disc toys featuring Sonic, Tails, Amy, Dr. Eggman, and more with their kids meal. To celebrate the partnership between Arby's and Sega, Sega will be offering an in-app promotion for Sonic Dash. Simply download or update the app during the promotional window to receive fifty red star rings to unlock characters, items, and more.
