McDonald’s cell-phone straps

5 Sep

In America, key chains are popular (at least they were when I lived there. Are they still popular there?).

Key chains aren’t popular at all in Japan. Here, 携帯電話ストラプ (cell-phone straps) are very popular.

I wrote a post about “Samurai cell-phone straps” and another post about “Snoopy cell-phone straps”.

I had meant to write about the cell-phone straps that McDonalds in Japan began offering last July but I didn’t get around to it until now.

Unfortunately, if you want one of these straps it’s too late now. The campaign has recently ended.
I thought the straps were a good idea and they were fairly popular. They looked just like McDonalds burgers, fries, coffee and apple pie…but they’re too big, in my opinion.
I wouldn’t put one on my phone. I have a strap on my phone but it’s nothing like these.

To get one of these “McDonalds Food Straps“, you had to order a large size value meal set and a strap would be included with the set…during the campaign period.

Would you put one of these on your cell-phone? Do you already have one? Which one do you like best? Does McDonalds offer things like this in your country?

      Since 1997 Hong Kong has been a part of China. So I guess “made in Hong Kong” is the same as “made in China”.

      Aren’t there Japanese phone straps available in Australia? And do people in Australia put straps on their cell-phones?

    Key Chains are fairly popular, but I see so manuy asians at my school with these straps on their phones, but they all are Winnie the Pooh, and for future reference, I live in an area with around 75% of tyhe ppopulation as soem sort of asian, and more than half of that is Korean. But all I have to go under the freeway (you may call it something else, it is basically a highway) to get to a population of a lot of Hispanic people. Anyways, these cell phone straps are popular with ym asian friends and asian people who aren’t my friends.

      Disney cell-phone straps are popular with girls in Japan also. But there are many, many other types too. Mine, for example, is a skull.

      Do you have a strap on your cell-phone? (Do you use a cell-phone?)

      At what age does the average child in America get their first cell-phone?
      In Japan, I’d say it’s junior high age…but I didn’t let my kids have a phone until they started high school.

        I have a strap, but it isn’t on my phone, it is on my DS, it is a mushroom from Super Mario Bros. I don’t really use my cell phone, I don’t have a texting plan and I really just use it to call my parents to pick me up from football (soccer is what Americans call it but I think football is better) practices and stuff. I got my first cell phone last year (beginning of high school) but I remember some kids having them in elementary school and I really never wanted one, I got it because borrowing other people’s phones was annoying.

        Yeah, but mainly in asian stores that have a lot of imports, I have been in some of those, and sometimes fast-ffod restaurants in heavily populated “asian” areas like where I live may have them. the only one that seems to aimed towards the general public is the New Super Mario Bros. screem cloth.

        If they only cost US$1 or less, then they’re probably not Japanese phone straps.

        Japanese phones straps are quality made…and priced accordingly.
        They cost about ¥600 – ¥1,000 (US$7-$11) in Japan…outside of Japan, they’d be priced even higher due to import costs, I’d imagine.

        most likely, but they are mostly in Korean stores I think so I don’t know, all I know is that nothing on the boxes or anyting has English. Except maybe the brand like Winnie the Pooh or something
