Nintendo has again partnered with McDonald’s to offer toys based on its franchises with Happy Meals.

From now until May 22, Happy Meal purchases will come with one of eight different toys. They may lack the same level of appeal or functionality of Amiibo figures, but they do each have a “special function.” The translucent Mario, for instance, can light up different colors.

This isn’t the first time Nintendo toys have been offered with Happy Meals. Previous partnerships brought us toys based on Mario Kart 8, Mario, Pokemon, and more.

McDonald’s is also offering the chance to win a Nintendo Switch and a copy of the upcoming Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Making a purchase at McDonald’s and registering it in the restaurant chain’s mobile app will provide you with one entry in the sweepstakes, while Happy Meal purchases will net you two entries. Alternatively, you can simply send an email once per day between now and May 22 to receive free entries. There are 100 bundles in all up for grabs, and the full rules (and instructions for obtaining those free entries) can be seen here.

If you’re in more of a hurry to get your hands on a Switch, GameStop has a limited number in stock today. Both Best Buy and Toys R Us will have the system available in limited quantities this Friday to coincide with the launch of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.
