Welcome to Gaia! ::

Did anyone collect the all 50 of the Pokemon toys Burger King sold? You know the ones that use to come in a Pokeball until some dumb kid ruined it for the rest of us.
I think my sister and I collected all but 5.

I only got to collect one. It was around the ripe age of seven or so and it was the only time I had ever eaten at a Burger King. My brother and I convinced my father to go to it for the sole reason of claiming the toys. I had obtained a meowth, but I can't remember what my brother got. A few years back I was trick or treating with some friends and this lady was giving out old fast food toys along with candy. I up and searched that bitchen box with the hopes of finding something related to some nerdy fandom I liked. To my joy I found an Oddish toy from the Burger King Selection from all those years way back. So yah, I have two. Or had two. I don't know where the meowth is, but I still have my oddish. Along with some other (none burger king) pokemon toys.

I remember those, I had like two of them. Sadly I never got all 50 of them and I thought it ended before I could . How did some kid ruin it for everyone? I never heard what happened.

I have a few, though I can't remember what or how many. It seems like I got one or two of the "rarer" toys but I can't swear to it now... I really need to find which box I put those in...

Sadly, I never collected all of them. That's a bit harsh to say the kid ruined it for everyone, though. It was actually a baby, and he (I think it was a boy) put half of the Poke Ball over his face while he was in his crib and suffocated. Obviously, the parents should never have given a toy for older children to a baby to begin with. But I still agree with Burger King's decision to pull the toys out of respect for the family.

I had two complete sets (I won one of them in a raffle) and a few extras. I kept them all this time, but I ended up giving the second set and a bunch of my other Pokemon toys to a friend last year.

I agree with you. I'd say the parents ruined it by giving a baby a toy so not meant for that age range. I babysit and I do not let my charges play with age inappropriate things, because they can die and that's sad. I also support BK's decision, because from a business standpoint, that's the best decision to make.

That said, I never got all the toys. I got a bunch, mostly tops, launchers, and water squirters. My sister lucked out and got the light up Mew that came in a psychic bubble instead of a Pokeball. We got the gold plated cards too.

I forgot about the gold plated cards! I know I had Pikachu and I think Togepi...I think that was it.
I have a gold plated Tokapi (or however that baby pokemon from the 1st season's name is spelled) and I think I got a pickachu keychain thing from those pokeballs... maybe i'm mixing it up with something else. Think I have a Mewtwo (or is it Mew?) one as well. They're lost somewhere in a toy box I haven't been in in years...

I lucked out and got them all. Off of the top of my head, I remember Pikachu, Togepi, and Poliwhirl.
