If you are a family who never eats out and isn't plagued by the plastic menace of the toy-with-food idea, kudos to you! This article is not for you.
If, however, you occasionally (or frequently) find yourself in the drive-thru, Read On!
We have a rule in our home about toys that come with food in kids meals, and my mom said I should share it.
Toys-from-food are affectionately known as 24 Hour Toys in our house, because, unless they are truly spectacular, like the magnetic gears set we got from Sonic a few years ago that still grace the refrigerator door, or the DK Books from Chick-fil-a about all manner of things, they go in the garbage after 24 hours.
Another thing to do with these is to donate them to your church or school Prize Boxes, but I find the Round File or the Recycle Bin to be the very best place for that junk ;)
