    Can't help. They have the mouse, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, goat, monkey, hen, dog, and then cupid. It's not a Chinese zodiac then what?

    Yeah...just can't imagine why there are still so many people queuing up for such junk food, which has long been abandoned by people from the West.

    it boils down to how sensitive the religion is... i see some religion tend to be extremely sensitive as compared to others... especially across the causeway. or probably these people don't give a hoot about the actual teachings of their religion but blow their trumpets just to be heard/seen.

    Is the soft toy meant for consumption?

    Even if customers want to eat the soft toy.

    I am very sure the Doremon is halal

    Actually the dolls don't even represent the zodiac well, except for rabbit and tiger because of the distinct pattern, the rest are juggled. So even if you put up a pig, it won't look like one to begin with. Thus is can be deduced that pig is the last icon regardless zodiac or not.

    They could have easily package the pig doll as lucky 12 instead of omit it.

    Also, I'm also shocked that the new Mc'Value' meal that they've just introduced caused $7-$9! It's some beef patty with black peper with twisted fries or something.
    With any purchase... does not need to be Mcvalue meal.. jus any purchase

    Thanks for the clarification, but no thanks. Although I'm a Doraemon fan, a Chinese zodiac will not be complete without the boar. Don't like it to be replaced by the cupid.

    Why are full grown adults getting so worked up over some god darm toys? Racial and religious sensitivity over some retarded fairy tale and I clearly know which of it has a higher priority.

    "As a halal restaurant, McDonald's could not display or sell Pig soft toys."

    Have checked the MUIS site leh... Never state cannot display the soft toy. Or mayby i can't seems to find the statement.

    http://www.muis.gov.sg/cms/uploadedF...Dec%202009.pdf

    Anyway, i think Singaporeans have somehow except and respect each other's religion.
    Hence, it doesn't seems to create any issue among us. I think even if they were to sell the Pig softtoy, my muslim friends will still walk into the outlet.

    McDonald's main aim at the end of the day is to make as much $$$ as possible... so, if everyone decides not to patronize them, or decides not to buy their toys, then it will send a message to them... a message where it affects their bottom line... $$$

    I know this is only MD's problem with the audience but I take this issue with high interest because Zodiac is extremely significant to Chinese birth, CNY and feng shui. My Zodiac is pig or boar, thus this is very insensitive.
    Eastern have zodiac (even Vietnam has it), Western has horoscope.

    I'm pissed that the people at McDonald have such small brains. Do they consider changing a chinese culture and risk offending all chinese to be less of a risk than to offend another race?

    Or do they think they can just step all over one race and not another?

    Must be a stupid pig brain who decide this

    Even my Malay friends feel offended that McDonalds think so little of them. The Malays in SG are better that that!!!

    I have registered my unhappiness with McDonald, talking here is not use, take action!!! Below is the link:

    Let's see how they reply to my email to them.

    I hope that more will spread this to other website and encourage them to contact McDonalds. There is strength in numbers.
