Does anyone remember....

... the plastic Burger King hand puppets that BK used to give away by the thousands back in the day?? I believe they used to keep whole piles of them on the counter, right next to the paper crowns; and they didn't care if you took 20 of them, they just wanted to unload them.

Remember them well! Always would get one, and my brother would, too. And they would end up lost in no time!

OMG! I totally forgot about these. I LOVED THEM!!!!

I'd grab one and it'd hold my interest for about 5 minutes. But still everytime I went to a BK I'd grab a new one. Never did get into the paper crowns, though

Yes, I probably still have one of those "puppets" up in my attic!

I had one of these as a kid...until I got "experimental" and melted it on the light bulb of one of our living room lamps. How I didn't sizzle my hands as well, I'll never know.

Ah, the '70s...

JA & FF: Sounds like you got more use out of them than I did

I had plastic Banana Splits puppets. I can't remember if they were a burger promotion or cereal.

Hmmm, I'm not sure either. I'm not certain if BK did promotions for other characters back in the day. I thought BK pretty much promoted themselves.
