    I love them but in all honesty I wish we could get the Halloween McNugget buddies back. They were my favorite 😍

    • MrsBK

      Yes! I loved those too.

    • Princess'Mom


    • Caroline Gangl

      I just read that if you order from the app you can substitute chicken McNuggets.

  2. IrishND98

    They had purple in the 80s

  3. cblazejak

    mcboo is out there but an exclusive at box lunch!

  4. TC007

    So just to clarify, the boo bucket, is the prize, correct? Or is there also a prize in the bucket? Just so my kids aren’t looking forward to both 😂!

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      Hey there! It looks like the bucket will be the prize, though there’s not any additional details released on this yet. During last years’ release, this was the case, so it’s likely to be the same this year. 🤗

    • Amy

      Ours had them today and the bucket was the prize 😊

      • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

        Sweet! Thanks so much for sharing this update, Amy! 💓 How awesome that your location had them available earlier than anticipated! 🎉🎃

      • TC007

        Awesome! I figured, but wanted to be sure! Thanks Amy and Jessica!

        • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

          You’re so welcome! Hoping you score a Boo Bucket with your kiddos soon! 🥰

      • Ann

        Ours didn’t have them! My kids were so disappointed. They got Mario Bros toys today!

        • Amy

          Oh no! That’s disappointing. Our stores had signs out about it so I asked and they told me that they were using them.

  5. Ms. Frizzle

    I was disappointed we couldn’t stack them to store them unless you remove the handles

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      Oh no! Thanks for the heads up on this, Ms. Frizzle. That is a bummer for storing. Hoping this years might be a bit different! 🤞

    • Jodi P

      The handles are easy to remove. Just push down on each side, it’s only held on by a slot-and-button thing.

  6. Tina

    Is it known what weeks get which colors?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hey Tina! That may vary by location. I’ve seen many saying they were able to grab them yesterday and it seemed the various colors were given out. You could always check with your location to be sure on how they may be giving them out. ❤️🤗

  7. Renee

    Three (3) McDonald’s close to where I live. Two (2) of them are starting with the orange (pumpkin) and one is giving out the purple (vampire). Best to call and see which one your location has available. Was told that they open one box at a time with all the same buckets before going on to a different color.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks so much for the heads up on how it has been working at your locations! 💞🙌

  8. Renee

    No worries! Happy Halloween!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Happy Halloween, Renee! 🎃🎉❤️

  9. It’s me

    Where I live it’s the green one

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks for the update on what’s available near you! ❤️ I scored the orange one earlier today, so it does seem to vary by location. Hoping you might be able to collect them all soon! 🤞🥰

  10. Amy

    This was so fun to take my teenage son to get this hapoy mela today. Couple things to note if you’re purchasing these to relive the 1987 vibe..

    1. The new buckets are smaller… like 2/3 the size of the buckets from the 80s

    2. The new buckets do not have the plastic lids… like the black plastic which. Hat for the which or the orange pumpkin stem for the jack o lantern… instead the handle has like a little built in hat shape and they come with a paper lid and stickers.

    All in all, still a fun time. We NEVER eat McDonald’s, but I took my 15 year old son to get one and regaled him of my stories from the 1900s and my mom bringing me the boo bucket to school one day for lunch.

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks for sharing all these helpful details about the comparison between the original and the newer ones, Amy. 🥰 Glad to hear you and your son had a memorable time snagging these Happy Meals today! ❤️

  11. Linda

    Thanks for the heads up. This was a fun one. I got the purple today. They’re cute but as someone else said they’re much smaller. Also the handle design is bad. At least for the purple bucket. It gets in the way. I had a hard time getting my food out of it without dumping stuff. I had to maneuver around the handle. All in all, it’s fun for the nostalgia. Kids will enjoy the cuteness, but it’s not really usable as a trick or treating pail if that’s the goal for getting one. 🙂

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Aww, You’re so welcome, Linda. Thanks a bunch for the heads up on how small they are. Happy you could snag the purple! 🙌🥰

  12. Rose

    Always check your mobile app deal offers! BOGO Happy Meals were an option, and I could see that the buckets were the toy selection available during my mobile order

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      Yes! Thank you so much for this helpful reminder about checking offers in the app, Rose! 🙌 I’ve added a Hip Tip to the post on this. ❤️

  13. Jennifer

    When did they get rid of the lids? A lady at my church got them for her kids, and the handle just has a “fake” lid on it, which I didnt notice in the picture here. Kind of misleading that all their other merch continues showing a lid.

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi Jennifer! 🤗 When these made a comeback at McDonald’s last year, they no longer had lids on them, only the handles like you mentioned and shown above with Melinda. Bummer! ❤️ Hoping they hear customer feedback about wanting the return of the lids, if they release them again next year! 🤞
