    I haven't bought a Happy Meal in years but a colleague told me that Wendy's is giving away CD's of Magic Tree House in the kid's meals.

    Well, DH and I ordered a meal, and I asked about the CD's. I was referred to the manager, told them I was a teacher, asked if they had extra. They GAVE me 25 extra CD's!!!!

    Man, when I went they gave me one CD. I even asked if they had others. The person working there doesn't speak much English and just kept smiling at me. Darn. I just want all 4! There is probably no chance of getting them at this point.

    I stopped the other day and asked. The first lady said no that I could only get the one when I bought the happy meal. I asked if they would do like they did with the Arthur CD's, I buy one happy meal and then buy the rest of the CD's for $.99 each. She said we couldn't do that but when I got to the window she said she was mistaken and since she had not known she gave me the other 3 CD's for free. My kids were so excited when I told them as soon as I could figure out where to fit them in we would listen to them. Maybe inside recess time.....

    I got 2 of the CDs for a dollar. He couldn't find any of the other two. Oh well! He was very nice about it.

    I am going to have to call up an old friend to see about getting these!! I want them all! I saw on Wendy's website that the next thing to be in the kids meals are games like Chutes and Ladders. You should check them out-might be good for indoor recess games!

    I just went to my Wendy's and they didn't speak English, either (I had a feeling because very few of them do).
    I was able to get 1 from them but it took several minutes for them to figure it out- so I wasn't about to negotiate buying 4 or picking a title.
    Worst part is is that I have 2 of the 4 books at school- and the 1 they gave me is not one of them!
    Maybe I will try at another Wendy's tomorrow....


    Oh, and off topic, but MY how the Jr Cheeseburger has shrunk!!!!!!

    Have you been to McDonalds lately? Off-topic! Their fish and big macs are smaller too. And ice cream in the store is smaller for same price.

    I know they are saying the Double Cheeseburger will no longer be on the $1 menu and it will be instead a "Double Hamburger with Cheese"- which means they will be putting less cheese on it.

    Lot's of things in the store are smaller- ice cream, Doritos (maybe other chips, too), cereal, orange juice, etc...

    I called my mom to see if she could get more. She lives close to a Wendy's and there isn't one in my neck of the woods. The one I went to is near my school... I hope she scores and gets the three I don't have already!

    Well, I think it's a good thing. Americans are TOO FAT (myself included) and we could stand to have smaller portions of things like ice cream, Doritos and hamburgers. When I went to Wendy's the other day I got a $1 hamburger and ate it with the lettuce and meat only, no bun... I'm trying!! I was surprised at how small the meat was, but in the end, I think that's fine as long as it's still cheap and they don't give us less and raise the cost even more.

    Cool! Our school (all 640 1st and 2nd graders) is going to see The Magic Tree House Musical this year. We won't tell our kids until closer to time, but all the teachers are very excited.

    I saw the musical when it first came out in CT- Mary Pope Osborn was there! It was wonderful! You will enjoy it.

    Yes, American's are too fat :) Myself included as well!

    Things like ice cream and Doritos being smaller is fine with me. I never buy it (OK- maybe once every 6 months and usually for a reason!). But, thinks like OJ and cereal being down-sized, well :down:. Those are things I use and by regularly (and are fairly healthy) that costs me more because I have to buy it more often...
