“The McDonald’s ‘Kung Fu Panda’ Happy Meal is all about having fun and we are excited to give kids the opportunity to recreate the adventures of Po and the Furious Five not only with this unique collection of Happy Meal toys, but by providing kids with an awesome online and offline experience that is both entertaining and energizing.

It starts from the Jade Palace – the land of Kung Fu in Po’s world – showcasing his Dragon Warrior skills to prepare the Schezwan burgers with much gusto.
