When you think about how many millions of Happy Meals have been sold since their beginning in 1979, there are a lot of worthless little plastic figurines out there- not to mention the ones that people have bought their children from toy stores and dollar stores. But why should these colored plastic characters be forgotten? Enter KARATOYS- the Tumblr that resurrects old toys and brings them to life by illustrating them into new poses. From Ronald McDonald appearing to be resurrected with a bird costume to an angry donut in army gear, the gallery will not fail to amuse you.[see_also]
Started a little over a month ago, KARATOYS adds a new drawing beside the toy that inspired it every few days. My personal favorite is a toss-up between the super buff order of french fries with Arnold Schwarzenegger arms and the hideous little red baby wearing a scarf. Follow KARATOYS on Tumblr and Twitter to see what’s next as soon as it’s posted.
