Chicken McNugget Tetris
McDonald's (2023)
This summer, McDonald's restaurants in China introduced a Chicken McNugget shaped handheld Tetris game to celebrate the 40th birthday of their iconic bite-sized chicken.

Even though they're not available from restaurants outside of China, there are quite a few of them that can be purchased for a fairly reasonable price on eBay... at least for now.  I figured that this was going to be similar to a Tiger LCD game, and I suppose that it is, but it's a surprisingly decent version of the game.  The familiar song plays over the title screen and while there's no music during the game itself, there are sound effects.  It's not like this is going to become anybody's go-to for playing the game, but kudos to McDonald's for hiring someone who put in the effort to make this a legitimate game, and not just a piece of plastic that is sort of like Tetris.

This is the box that it came in
