SINGAPORE — Long queues were spotted outside McDonald’s outlets today (July 25), just a month after the Hello Kitty craze died down.

McDonald’s began offering free figurines of the minion characters from the Despicable Me movies with each Happy Meal purchased, on each Thursday starting three weeks ago.

The fast-food chain started giving out the last in the series of the yellow capsule-like figurines of Gru’s minions at 11am today.

Queues started forming outside the McDonald’s at Toa Payoh Central “nearly two hours before” 11am, said trainee manager Yazz Tawel.

“Customers usually ordered 11 to 12 boxes at one go,” he said, adding that the toys were sold out by 12.30pm.

While the queues were long, they still paled in comparison to the queues seen for the Hello Kitty series of toys McDonald’s handed out last month, ending with the Singing Bone Kitty on June 26.

Ms Shirley Ramos, an Assistant Marketing Director with PropNex, admitted she doesn’t like Despicable Me “but I’m queueing anyway for my kids”.

McDonald’s have specially created a “deferred fulfilment” online for fans to place their orders for those who missed the opportunity to get the toy.
