McDonald's is celebrating the 30th anniversary of its Happy Meals with 30th Birthday Teenie Beanie Babies.

The Teenie Beanie Babies come in 30 varieties including McDonald's exclusive characters and include codes to play games in the online McWorld or Ty's Beanie Babies 2.0 site.

In addition, McDonald's is donating a portion of proceeds from every Happy Meal sold to Ronald McDonald House Charities of Hawaii, which provides a home away from home for families who have a seriously ill or injured child in the hospital.
