Happy Goggles’ Bring Virtual Reality to Swedish McDonald’s

Swedish McDonald's fans have a new way to play with their food when they go to their local burger joint — or at least the box their food comes in.

On Monday, McDonald's announced the creation of their new "Happy Goggles," a virtual reality headset similar to Google Cardboard that is made from a folded-up Happy Meal box.

"To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Happy Meal in Sweden, McDonald's Sweden has developed Happy Goggles. By re-folding the Happy Meal box, customers can create a pair of virtual-reality glasses which makes it possible to experience virtual reality with a smartphone," McDonald's said in a press release.

"The Happy Meal simply must move with the times. But evolution doesn't always mean radical change. For us it meant a bit of ripping, folding and sliding," the company said.

The box will not be the only feature of the Happy Goggles. McDonald's is also launching a VR skiing game called "Slope Stars."

"The game is endorsed by the Swedish National Ski Team and will be available from Friday, March 4th, and can be found on," the company said in the same press release.
