The Simpsons Hungry Jack's couch toyThis four-piece snap-together couch set came in Hungry Jack’s in 2009, to celebrate The Simpsons 20th anniversary. One piece was available in Kids Meals each week for four weeks, and all together it looks pretty damn nice.

Since Hungry Jacks is the Australian equivalent of Burger King (the different name is due to a trademark issue back in the 1970s, apparently), this set might have been released in Burger Kings in other countries, but I can’t find any record of it.

Burger King Camping Set

Line: Burger King kid’s meal toys
Year: 1989/1990
Set: 5 – Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa, Maggie

These rubber figures were released in the kids meals at Burger King  in the USA in 1989, and at Hungry Jack’s in Australia in 1990, which makes them one of the first (if not the very first) Simpsons fast food sets.

They have a camping theme, after the first season episode, “The Call Of The Simpsons”, in which the family loses their RV, stranding them in the woods.

They originally came with cardboard “diarama” backgrounds. I’ve seen pictures of them, but I’ve never seen them for sale or on display anywhere. The figures are fairly common in my experience, but if you have or find any of the backgrounds, don’t let them go!

Unless you want to give them to me, that is…

The Simpsons beach scene set came with the kid’s meals in Australian Burger King and Hungry Jack’s stores in 2001. One piece was released a week, over four weeks, fitting together to create the whole scene. As far as I know, this set was only released in Australia.
