What is it
Say hello to Happy Studio from McDonald’s! It’s full of fun games and creative activities to help kids develop useful skills while they play at being an artist, inventor, entertainer, hero or musician. Create a masterpiece, move to the music, or launch a rocket – anything is possible in Happy Studio.
“We’ve loved watching children enjoy playing Happy Studio and having the opportunity to develop across so many areas while they play.” Lucy Gill, Apps, Technology and UX Expert
The app is constantly updated with characters that are visiting the Happy Meal, so there’s always something new to make and do. The games are always changing too – so not all of the games below are available all of the time.
Be an Inventor: This game encourages kids to experiment and watch their creations go off with a surprise. Children can build all sorts of machines, then test their inventions to find out if they work!
Be an Artist: Kids learn the techniques they need to feel like a real artist – with some surprising results. Explore tools and resources to create drawings, or follow the instructions to learn how to draw a character.
Be an Entertainer: Kids take centre stage to learn the art of performance. Playing as a team or solo, they’ll create and star in their own music video or film trailer.
Be a Musician: Challenging kids to match musical patterns helps them learn different sounds and rhythms. Kids can get moving to the music and compose their own songs.
Be a Hero: Solve three multi-level motion-controlled puzzles. Challenge yourself or play with up to three friends – who is the real Hero?
Note: Some features are only available in selected countries and restaurants.
Play with Happy: Choose outfits and backgrounds for Happy, and unlock new ones with each visiting character. Children can see how many keepy-uppies he can do, or get him to copy them with the camera feature.
Scan with Happy Studio: Kids can scan their Happy Meal toy or promotional Happy Meal food items with scannable icons for new surprising ways to play with their favourite characters visiting the Happy Meal.
Digital masks: The new magical mask experience allows children to transform themselves into visiting characters or play with masks inspired by fruits and veggies.
Digital books: In this new digital reading experience, sounds and animations bring the story to life. As children follow the words with their finger the text is highlighted, helping children keep track of their reading.
