Trivial Pursuit: The Meme

Following on from his success on his Object Meme (Here's mine!) , Tim over at Bringing Up Charlie has created yet another cool Meme.

The Trivial Pursuit Meme

The Mission - Tell us something not a lot of people know.

Who would you say is the largest toy distributer in the world?

Would you say Toys R Us was?

Or Even?

What About?


Well surprisingly the largest toy distributer in the world is none of those but it is

Which is down the toys that come with the happy meals , I was surprised at first but then thinking back to when I was a little girl . My Mother must of took us to Mcds at least once a week for a Happy Meal and I remember using my pocket money to buy extra toys if I wanted to complete the collection.

So there' s my little piece of Trivial Pursuit.

    Oddly enough that is one bit of trivia I already knew. Very interesting and unexpected when you first discover it though!

    Great bit of trivia! Whenever we go to McD, me and my elder brother just expect a burger, but our two younger siblings would rather have the toys!
