Kids from all across the country will be able to expand their Crazy Bones collections when they discover that these Monster Crazy Bones come in a variety of colors with a range of color treatments—resulting in a total 800 different bones to collect. This makes Crazy Bones the Happy Meal with the biggest variety of collectible toys in McDonald's history.
"Our partnership with McDonald's will undoubtedly be an exciting opportunity for all of us here at Toy Craze. It will be a chance to heighten brand awareness and take Crazy Bones to the next level," says Stephanie Kovner-Bryant, Director of Licensing and Promotion for Toy Craze.
Toy Craze, Inc., a Cleveland based company formed in 1998, was formed from a group of toy industry experts "who are just kids at heart."
