Ebay Tuesday

I honest to goodness have one of these. It's one of my very favorite things. If I were Julie Andrews singing in the Sound of Music, I would have worked him into the lyrics of that song.

This is an egg mcmuffin transformer that was a Happy Meal toy sometime in the 80's - because what is more fun than breakfast foods that transform into robots? Nothing, that's what. I am completely calling BS on its low market value btw, this guy is true treasure!

When Keely and I were younger (I'm guessing high school) a favorite trick when cleaning our rooms was to secretly unload all the random crap that had accumulated in our room and put it somewhere in the other's room. The egg mcmuffin made the rounds several hundred times. I can't for the life of me figure out why we didn't throw him in the trash, but I am sure glad we didn't!! We still hide him today. He was sitting on her chair at high school graduation, snuck inside a piece of banana cream pie, and he even travelled internationally to Ireland. You never know when he will appear but he will always make you happy when you randomly find him in a snow boot that you haven't worn for a few years.

Come to think of it, I have no idea WHERE he is right now. Keely please tell me you have him or he is hiding here in a most awesome spot? I don't want to live in a world without Egg McMuffin transformer! xo, Brie

I hate to say it but I have no idea where he is. Maybe I will find him when I move, but for some reason I think you have him. I remember he was on my wedding cake and then after that I hid him inside a bar a soap I made you but I am at a lost now. I hope he shows up!

Oh no! He's lost. This is terrible. My best friend and I have an old box of candy that we do the same thing with. It's just a dumb box of conversation hearts, but we have so much fun with that thing. I hope that you find the egg mcmuffin transformer. The fun can't die!

That is awesome. He'd better not be lost!

Have you bathed since the wedding?

I swear I used to have one of those and now I want to know where it went!
