Burger King Kids Meals Are Burger King’s Version of the Happy Meal

The Happy Meal is so iconic that the term is often used to refer to just about any kid’s menu at a fast-food restaurant. However, each fast-food chain offers its own signature kid’s meal specials, including Burger King.

Burger King has a menu of kid’s meals called King Jr. Meals. There are 4 meals to choose from, modeled after the Happy Meal. The Burger King kid’s meals include a Hamburger and Cheeseburger Jr. King Meal and a 4-piece and 6-piece Chicken Nuggets Jr. King Meal. Each kid’s meal at Burger King comes with a side, drink, and toy.

In this article, we’re breaking down the Burger King kid’s menu options and everything you need to know about King Jr. Meals.

There are four different Burger King Kids Meals. You can choose from a Hamburger Jr. King Meal, a Cheeseburger Jr. King Meal, a 4-piece Chicken Nuggets Jr. King Meal, or a 6-piece Chicken Nuggets Jr. King Meal.  Each Jr. King Meal comes with your choice of a kid’s size side and drink option, as well as a toy.

The featured toys are available while supplies last and at participating locations, and each new promotion lasts about a month. You can purchase the toy separately at most Burger King restaurants without ordering a Jr. King Meal.

We all know that the toy in a fast-food kid’s meal is probably the most exciting part for any child.

The Happy Meal cemented the popularity of collectible toys served with kid’s menu items, and it’s no surprise that Burger King quickly followed their lead.

Each month, Burger King releases a new promotional toy collection included in every purchase of a kid’s meal.

At some participating Burger King restaurants, the toy can be purchased without a meal.

Burger King has featured toys inspired by Nintendo, Star Wars, the Simpsons, Scooby-Do, and SpongeBob, just to name a few.

The King Jr. Meal toys from Burger King are as collectible as the Happy Meal toys.

To date, the most valuable toys from Burger King are their Pokemon Balls with Gold Plated Pokemon cards issued in 1999. One sealed Pokemon Ball today can sell for $39.99.

Can You Order a Burger King Kids Meal During Breakfast?

Burger King’s kid’s meals are not available during breakfast hours. Burger King offers their breakfast menu from 6:30 am until 10:30 am, and you can order a King Jr. Meal at participating locations after 10:30 am until close. You can still purchase a kid’s meal toy separately during breakfast hours.

Burger King’s breakfast menu features its own combo meals and sides, including their popular Croissan’wich, Egg-Normous Burrito, and Impossible Breakfast Sandwich.

While there are no kid’s menu items offered during breakfast hours at Burger King, you can still find kid-friendly breakfast items like pancakes and French toast sticks.

The breakfast menu at Burger King has plenty of ways to mix and match menu items and create the perfect breakfast for any adult or child.

At most locations, you can even purchase the King Jr. Meal toy separately to add to your breakfast meal.


The Burger King kid’s menu offers everything you would expect from a fast-food chain. The King Jr. Meals offer a variety of meal options, with both classic sides and healthier choices.

In addition, with collectible toys based on popular children’s movies and games, the kid’s meals at Burger King check all the boxes for a fun, fast meal on the go!
