We know that McDonalds is so NOT healthy. We don't eat at McDo everyday but we do go occasionally especially now that summer season is upon us here in Doha. There's really not much choice.

2. LOCATION. LOCATION. LOCATION. There are lots of McDonald's all over the city and it's accessible. The McDonalds in the Airport Road is just five minute drive away from us. It's easy to be spontaneous when it's that close. Kids want to watch TV all the time? Bribe them and take them to the nearest McDonalds.

3. HAPPY MEALS! The free toys are getting more educational lately. Maybe it's the lack of kids movie who will sponsor the happy meals toys but we are LOVIN' the science toys and characters the past month in McDonald's Doha. The kids are learning a lot and it even became their favorite toy.
|we simply love the Madame Alexander books - these characters are perfect for reading book|
|we loved this CRAZY SCIENCE TOYS; shame it ended last week but we were able to get three toys!|
|This cute contraption is our favorite. Hooray for free useful and education toy!|

|believe it or not - going to McDo is hard habit to break!|
