: It's unfair to start selling them at 10:30 a.m. I have to be at work. Now I have to wait until after work when the lines will be long. If they are available why not sell them when they open?

Like all McHappy Meal Toys, they are meant to be received as a little fun treat for kids with their meal.

Like Elmo dolls, Beanie Baby Mania is a disgusting aspect of parenting in the 90'. If you want the toys as a frenzied parent trying to please your kids' every whim, you should be ashamed to contribute to this disgraceful social hysteria. If you want them for yourself as a collectors item, it's rather pathetic to consider them more important than going to work, and if you are buying them for your kids, wait. Go to McDonald's for supper, and let them pick one out with their meal.

By the way, I've heard Canadian McDonald's Beanie Babies are different. Our restaurants have sold them before, and we are selling them again in 2 weeks.
