A three-year-old from Belfast who’s wanted a McDonald’s Happy Meal since his family went into self-isolation in March got a homemade version on May 4 thanks to his mother and grandfather.
Tony Maguire surprised his grandson Rowan with a box marked with the familiar McDonald’s logo, and the youngster couldn’t contain his excitement.
The child’s initial joy was only topped by the delight he showed when the box was opened to reveal fries, a fried fish treat, sauce, and even a toy, thanks to the inclusion of a Kinder Surprise.
Rowan’s mother, Maria Woodside, caught the moment on camera and told Storyful that ever since COVID-19 measures took hold, “Rowan had been asking for a McDonald’s Happy Meal.”
She and her father prepared the home-cooked version for Rowan’s lunch “and his reaction tells the story,” she said. Credit: Maria Woodside via Storyful
