10 McDonald's Toys That Are Now Worth A LOT

We all remember our childhoods fondly for the memories that made us happy and some that shaped the adults we would become. Toys are the most fun part of any child’s life. Between starting to understand the world and getting used to the process of school, getting a new toy every now and then is the perfect necessity to make life less confusing. The fun items used to provide entertainment and amusement are sometimes too expensive for parents to afford. McDonald’s understood this and created the concept of a Happy Meal. It became a game changer in the fast food industry and appealed to children all over the world.

The Happy Meal consisted of a burger or chicken nuggets along with French fries, a drink and the most important aspect of the box – a toy. The idea of getting a toy along with a lunch made the idea become an instant success and it has lasted decades. Most of the toys weren’t overly complicated or pricy but that was the point. A small and fun toy would be guaranteed with every Happy Meal box. Many of the toys were in association with movies, television shows, video games and other popular brands among kids to make it even more appealing.

Through the years or even as long as decades, many of these toys have grown in value. McDonald’s wisely would have various sets of multiple toys to make their limited edition toys more important. The mysterious toy in each box meant it was difficult to get all of the toys in the set unless you kept purchasing more meals. The collectors to get all of the toys in a set or find a rare toy have saved them and are making good profits off of it today. We’ll look at the history of the free and cheap toys distributed by McDonald’s that are worth a lot more money today.

The world of Beanie Babies is a mixed bag. The adorable toys were hoped to be a great investment but the problem is not all of the toys have created great value. Most of them are worthless at this point going for a few bucks online but a few became hot commodities commanding a lot of money. The TY Beanie Babies collection of four bears with different designs is currently going for $439 on eBay. The very rare Roary the Lion is currently listed at $750. Most of the toys on this list are sets that require many items but one stuffed lion going for 750 bucks is hitting the lottery when it comes to McDonald’s toys.
