McDonald’s Halloween buckets, but make it fashion

While we’re all crossing our fingers and praying to the Halloween Powers-That-Be that the McDonald’s Halloween buckets return for 2023 isn’t just a rumor (as TikTok user @snacklocator announced last month), we’re making heart (pumpkin?) eyes at the Boo Bucket crossbody bags from Loungefly.


I’m excited that Boo Buckets are returning in 2023 and hoping McDonald’s brings some new designs this Halloween and the Loungefly bags are even cooler than I previously thought! #mcdonalds #boobuckets #loungefly #loungeflycollector #mcdonaldshalloweenbuckets #mcdonaldslife #fastfood #mcdonaldshappymeal #happymeal #happymealtoy

Every 80’s and 90’s kid’s favorite McGoblin and McPunk’n Happy Meal buckets are now available in exclusive crossbody bags from Loungefly! Perfect for holding all your most important treats, these vegan leather bags feature antique gold-colored hardware, festive interior lining, and the iconic witch and punk’n faces us millennials can remember as major parts of our childhood Halloweens.


Not only can you wear them year-round (plus they’re way more durable than our beloved old school plastic buckets), but both the McGoblin and McPunk’n glow in the dark. Clearly this collab is serious business. So, when you’re shuffling your little ghouls from block to block trick-or-treating this year, your bag can be seen by the whole neighborhood. As handbag enthusiasts, we think that’s a solid reason to get our hands on one.


If the Halloween buckets aren’t your speed, Loungefly has a whole McDonald’s collection for you to pick from: a Hamburglar mini backpack, a McDonald’s french fry card holder, a Ronald McDonald & Friends wallet, and more. There’s something for every McFan here, but the Halloween bags really are iconic.

Or, hey, maybe grab both. In our opinion, it’s Spooky Season from now until November 1st, so we’ll be rocking these for a while.
