McDonald's predicts fashionable futures with the "That's So Raven" McDonald's Happy Meal collection.
Sports fans and NBA enthusiasts alike will love the 30 mini-NBA jerseys available now at McDonald's. Perfect for any NBA fan, the six basketball action figures include one of 30 mini-NBA jerseys, representing each of the 30 NBA teams. Lay-up Luke, Slam Dunk Dan, and Bank Shot Bobby, characters featuring bendable arms, are ready to play!
