Cabbage Patch Monster Jam Burger King

Burger King have two great Kids Meal promotions going in New Zealand this month: Cabbage Patch Kids and Monster Jam trucks. These collectable toys are identical to the current promotion in the USA, Europe and more than 30 countries around the world.

Cabbage Patch Kids
This release follows on from the successful 2008 promotion by Burger King of Cabbage Patch Kids Minis commemorating 25 years of Cabbage Patch Kids

The current promotional set includes 6 different Cabbage Patch dolls each nicely styled and comes with its own sticker accessory for dressing up the mini. Included in this Burger King set are the following figures:

Natalie Maria

Isabella Anna
Kayla Elizabeth
Madison Brianna
Alyssa Tamara

Monster Jam Trucks
The latest 2009 Monster Jam truck premiums from Burger King are similar to the popular 2008 promotion in that they have the oversized tyres and their tops pop off. This time round, however, there are only six trucks instead of the eight that were in the earlier promotion. For some reason which I can’t fathom Burger King have chosen to repeat Grave Digger. Go figure???

The Monster Jam trucks in the 2009 promotion, which target boys in the 6 to 12 age group, come with every BK Kids Meal sold. They are rugged, have all-wheel pivot steering and interchangeable tops. The six piece Monster Jam set includes:

Grave Digger (black, green body)
Maximum Destruction (red)
Scarlet Bandit (pink)
Avenger (orange)
Captain Curse (red pickup)
BK Monster Truck (black, sponsored)
