Loungefly has teamed up with McDonald’s on a new merch line of bags and wallets inspired by the Happy Meal.

McDonald’s is kicking off the new year right, what with a collaboration in the works with Super Mario ahead of the new movie as well as Edgar Wright, of Baby Driver fame, directing the fast food chain’s new commerical.

But McDonald’s latest collaboration with Loungefly has the internet abuzz. Let’s take a look at how to get some of the new merch which is available to purchase this month.

Loungefly x McDonald’s launch new merch line

There are seven exclusive designs inspired by McDonald’s launching on Loungefly soon. This includes a range of stylish items from backpacks and crossbody bags to wallets and card holders. For any fashion-loving foodie, these are must-have accessories of the new year.

The merch collection includes three backpacks, one featuring Hamburglar, another in the shape of a Happy Meal box, and the final backpack as the Ronald McDonald costume.

There are two additional crossbody bags, one in as a Grimace cosplay and the other in the shape of French Fries. French Fries also feature as the card holder design, with the standard wallet shape featuring Ronald McDonald and friends.

Where to buy the Loungefly x McDonald’s collection

The full collection can be viewed on the Loungefly website where you have the option to be notified when it releases. Simply select ‘Notify Me’ on whichever item from the McDonald’s merch line takes your fancy.

Loungefly have priced the new collection similarly to their previous collaborations with the likes of Disney and Dragon Ball Z. Backpacks retail between $80-90, with crossbody bags coming in around $60. Wallets are priced between $25-40.

This is not McDonald’s first collaboration with a fashion brand

While McDonald’s might be best known for its fast food offerings, the chain is also known for its killer collaborations over the decades. Time and again we’ve seen fashion brans utilize the McDonald’s branding in their designs.

In September 2022, McDonald’s collaborated with designer Cactus Plant Flea Market to launch an Adult Happy Meal. A range of hoodies and tees in CPFM’s signature style also came with the collaboration.

Two years ago, McDonald’s worked with rapper Travis Scott releasing a ‘Cactus Jack’ t-shirt as well as a limited-edition Happy Meal.

And who could forget Moschino’s iconic 2014 Fall Ready-To-Wear show which featured the Golden Arches design all over the collection.
