Toys in Burger King kids' meals alternate on a regular basis. Toys and other promotional items are only available at participating locations, and locations can run out of a toy without notice. Some past Burger King toys include Superman, SpongeBob SquarePants, Thundercats and Batman figurines.
Burger King toys often tie in with current media with films in particular. Some of these films include "Rio," "Marmaduke," and "The Jungle Book." In 1999, a Burger King toy was recalled when a child suffocated by attaching the toy, a plastic Pokemon ball, over her nose and mouth. More than 25 million of that toy were recalled.
