Venus and Serena--McDonald's Toy!

I had to work tonight. On my way home, I stopped at McDonald's. I have an eight year old sister, who I spoil too much. Anyhoo, I asked which toy they had. The guy said a "tennis toy". Being the junkie that I am, I bought one. Then I looked at the package...it's Venus and Serena!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I flipped out. I bought one for myself (yes, I now own a children's toy from McDonald's). It's a neat little video game.

Luckily I didn't have to buy it. My neice saw it and said isn't this who we saw in Charleston (she came the first year) so she got her mother to buy me one.

McDonald's Press Release 04/27/2004
The Happy Meal® Celebrates 25 Years of Happiness With Sports Stars: Vince Carter, Venus and Serena Williams, Tony Hawk, Michael Vick, Mia Hamm, Tony Stewart

McDonald’s® Happy Birthday Happy Meal® to Feature Six ESPN25 Mini-Handheld Games, Sporting The Best in Sports
Oak Brook, Ill. – April 27, 2004 – McDonald's® cheers on the Happy Birthday Happy Meal® celebration with a collection of six ESPN25 inspired mini-handheld sports action video games at participating McDonald’s, while supplies last. As part of the McDonald’s 25 Years of Happiness celebration, each Happy Meal and Mighty Kids Meal® will include one of six ESPN25 sports action, mini-video games featuring the Best in Sports. In celebration of ESPN’s 25th Anniversary, McDonald’s will offer a one-of-a-kind collection of games featuring basketball great Vince Carter, world-class tennis champions Serena and Venus Williams, skateboarding legend Tony Hawk, football star Michael Vick, Olympic soccer star Mia Hamm, and car racing champion Tony Stewart. The action-packed fun begins April 30, 2004, and continues through May 27, 2004.

"In celebration of ESPN's 25th Anniversary we’ve created an event that brings to life six of the world’s top athletes all in one sports-action video game collection," said Kent Voetberg, director of family marketing at McDonald's. "This unique line-up of electronic mini-sports action games from ESPN brings our customers into the virtual game to take on or become their favorite sports heroes. It’s a great way to play when you’re on the go and can’t be on the field."

McDonald’s® Happy Birthday Happy Meal® to Feature Six ESPN25 Mini-Handheld Games, Sporting The Best in Sports
ESPN electronic mini-handheld games feature a picture of the star athlete and a printed signature replica. Customers will receive one of the following ESPN games with each Happy Meal or Mighty Kids Meal purchase:

Basketball – This ESPN mini-handheld game features professional basketball player Vince Carter. The game challenges players to move Vince Carter and shoot over defenders. Players make nine baskets and advance to new, faster, exciting rounds.

TennisVenus and Serena Williams, stars of the tennis court, serve up hours of fun on the ESPN tennis mini-handheld game. Players move back and forth to return the tennis ball to
Venus and Serena. To win, players must return the ball more times than the Williams sisters.

Skateboarding – The player maneuvers across the pavement and collect trophies just like skateboarding legend Tony Hawk. One advances to new levels by avoiding breaks in the pavement and sweeping up as many trophies as possible.

Football – Professional football star Michael Vick is showcased in the mini-handheld football game. As clutch receivers, players move up and down the end zone to catch touchdown passes from Michael Vick. One advances through all three levels to win the game!

Soccer – Mia Hamm, soccer player extraordinaire, will attempt to shoot and score against players. As goalies, players are challenged to block 10 attempts on goal by Mia Hamm.

Racing – Just like racing champion, Tony Stewart, players are challenged to speed up their racecar by passing other cars. They avoid collisions and cross the finish line first to win.

Pick up you games today, Williams fans!
