How to Download McDonald's Fairies and Dragons: A Retro PC Game
If you are feeling nostalgic for some old-school arcade games, you might want to check out McDonald's Fairies and Dragons, a series of games that were given away with Happy Meals in 2008. These games feature four fairies (Sunflower, Rose, Lily, and Violet) and four dragons (Ice, Earth, Wind, and Fire) that you can play with and customize. The games are compatible with Windows PCs and can be downloaded for free from various online sources.
In this article, we will show you how to download McDonald's Fairies and Dragons: Sunflower, the first game in the series. This game lets you explore a magical forest with Sunflower, the yellow fairy, and collect flowers, stars, and other items. You can also dress up Sunflower with different outfits and accessories, and interact with her dragon friend Ice.
Step 1: Find a reliable download source
There are several websites that offer McDonald's Fairies and Dragons: Sunflower as a free download. However, not all of them are safe or trustworthy. Some may contain viruses, malware, or unwanted software that can harm your computer. Therefore, you should always scan any file you download with an antivirus program before opening it.
One of the most reliable sources we found is My Abandonware[^1^], a website that hosts thousands of old games that are no longer sold or supported by their publishers. You can download McDonald's Fairies and Dragons: Sunflower from this link: https://www.myabandonware.com/game/mcdonald-s-fairies-and-dragons-sunflower-g3g. This is the full collection of the series of games given away with the Happy Meals in 2008.
Step 2: Extract the game files
Once you have downloaded the file from My Abandonware, you will need to extract it using a program like WinRAR or 7-Zip. The file is compressed in a ZIP format, which reduces its size and makes it easier to transfer. To extract it, right-click on the file and select \"Extract here\" or \"Extract to folder\". You will see a new folder named \"McDonalds Fairies And Dragons\" appear in the same location as the ZIP file.
Open the folder and you will see four subfolders named after each fairy: Sunflower, Rose, Lily, and Violet. Each subfolder contains the game files for that fairy. For this article, we will focus on Sunflower. Open the Sunflower folder and you will see two files: \"autorun.exe\" and \"setup.exe\".
Step 3: Install the game
To install the game, double-click on \"setup.exe\" and follow the instructions on the screen. You will need to agree to the terms and conditions, choose a destination folder for the game files, and create a shortcut on your desktop if you want. The installation process should take only a few minutes.
After the installation is complete, you can launch the game by double-clicking on the shortcut on your desktop or by going to the destination folder and double-clicking on \"autorun.exe\". You will see a splash screen with the McDonald's logo and then a menu with four options: Play Game, Options, Credits, and Exit.
Step 4: Enjoy the game
To start playing the game, click on Play Game. You will see a brief introduction video that shows Sunflower flying in the forest with Ice. Then you will enter the main screen of the game, where you can control Sunflower with your mouse or keyboard. You can move her around by moving your mouse or using the arrow keys. You can also make her fly faster by holding down the left mouse button or the spacebar.
Your goal is to collect as many items as possible in each level. There are flowers, stars, coins, gems, hearts, and other objects scattered around the forest. Some of them 061ffe29dd
