SONIC golden tot: ACHIEVED!

lepers and hardcore readers know that i've been after the SONIC golden tot in the wacky pack drink buddies series.

this morning i came home to find a package from msdrpepper.  it looks like an old skool floppy disc mailer (in reality, it was probably a SONIC gift card mailer) and inside, the goldiest of the SONIC drink buddy grails.

that's right, a golden tot ... and to the best of my knowledge, this is the first time a picture of one has ever been displayed on the 'net.
golden tot (with quarter for scale)
thrilling, i know.

so these are all the critters available as drink buddies: a lizard, a dog, a cat, a monkey, a WTF and a golden tot.
who's your buddy?
there are a few anomalies worth noting:
  • the cat is the only buddy with clothing (it's wearing a bow in its hair -- the dog has a collar)
  • the dog, the lizard and the WTF are the only buddies have a SONIC logo on the reverse
  • the others (cat, tot and monkey) have the mywackypack.com URL on the reverse [a site that has been "under construction" for months]
according to the wacky pack insert card, buddies are available in metallic, see-through and glitter finishes.  they're also available in many (unknown number) colors.

  1. I'm sorry to say but that isn't the golden tot. Working at a Sonic, I love finding cool drink buddies and I've looked through about 4 boxes of drink buddies to find one. I found ones that looked like yours before and I thought that was it but an actual golden tot is a gold color and doesn't have any glitter. I found mine last night. This is the only image I can find online of an actual golden tot.

  3. I know this is like 5 years old, but Austin is correct, that is not the Golden Tot. I have a Golden Tot.
