Thanksgiving 2012 Wrap Up

Thanksgiving has come and gone once again and we got a visit from the usual suspects.  Not family or friends of course, but the typical gang of product mobiles that roll through our lives at this time of year.  Starting with the Houston Holiday Parade we have the Houston Chronicle Star Car:

Along with the "high top" version of the Ronald McDonald Big Red Shoe:

And a bit of a surprise in that the HEB Shoppibg Cart Car is now joined by the BasketMobile.  While the Shopping Cart is an old favorite, this is the first time I've seen the Basket.

Moving on to the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, the product mobiles got short shrift from NBC and were barely featured for more than a few seconds (Boo!).  Here's the "low top" version of Ronald McDonald's Big Red Shoe:

And Planter's Nutmobile:

Another year, another visit from old friends.  As always, I'm holding out hope that new product mobiles will show up next year but, if not, we still have plenty to be thankful for.
