McDonald's Happy Meals are turning 40 and as a birthday present for all of us, they're re-releasing some fan-favorite Happy Meal toys in special Surprise Meals starting November 7.

The fast-food giant is releasing 15 toys in the Happy Meals around the world, although U.S. eaters will have the chance to get an extra two Disney toys. We're loving the selection, which hits all the best 90s nostalgia notes—and yes, there's a Beanie Baby among the mix! The kiddos might not be the only ones craving a chicken nugget meal with one of these in the iconic red Happy Meal box.
