Stuffed Burger Kings

No, not stuffed at Burger King — stuffed Burger Kings!

I picked these royal fellows up along the way during my travels and recently passed them on to a friend. Stuffed animals, plush dolls, and pillows are both a blessing and a curse; there are a lot of retro-themed ones out there, but they take up a lot of space and they’re hard to display and keep clean. From time to time I’ll pick up a few, hang on to them for a bit and then pass them along to someone else.

Growing up in the 70s and 80s I think McDonald’s won the marketing war (plus we had to drive past five sets of golden arches before reaching the nearest Burger King), but I still enjoyed having these around.

    I had the stuffed one on the right. I liked the Magical Burger King incarnation.
