In 1982 Bally Midway released Baby Pac-Man. It was a very cool hybrid video game/pinball machine that was surprisingly unpopular at my local arcade. I enjoyed it though and that might have had to do with this Burger King Kid’s Meal tie-in they released that same year. You take a cheeseburger, fries and a soda, put it in a box and pop some other product on that box, you pretty much turned me into a fan of that product when I was a kid. It didn’t hurt that the arcade that had this machine was near a Burger King that I liked to go to.
Here is one side of the box as posted by the wafflewhiffer. Click on the image for a larger version and to also view the other side of the box.
