This list features some of the most valuable McDonald’s toys ever, ranging from burger transformers to Nintendo to the king of the jungle. Read on to see which McDonald's Happy Meals toys are worth way more than you might think.

1.TY Teenie Beanie Babies

In the 1990s, Collectors are paying big bucks for rare and unique Ty Beanie Babies. While some fetch a few hundred dollars, the most expensive unopened Beanie Babies have sold for more than a number of luxury watches combined. The frenzy over limited edition Beanie Babies drove collectors and parents to frantically bid for stuffed animals off toy store shelves. Seeing dollar signs in those tiny animals, McDonald wisely decided to release an extensive collection of Teenie Beanie Babies. Auctions on eBay show just how much collectors are willing to pay for rare and McDonald’s Ty Beanie Babies.

2.Mighty Morphin Power Rangers

Every child in the 1990s remembers the Power Rangers Mania. Throughout the last two decades, McDonald’s has released a variety of Power Rangers toys. Still, the toys they released in celebration of the 1995 Mighty Morphin Power Rangers movie are the most popular — and the most valuable.

Recently a loose set sold for $85.04 in May, while a brand new sealed set can demand at over $350.00. If you’ve got a dusty box of old Mighty Morphin Power Rangers sitting around somewhere, now might be a good time to check it for valuable prices.

3.Despicable Me 2 Minions

Since Despicable Me hit theaters hard, McDonald has hopped on the Minion bandwagon. The lumpy yellow henchmen are taking over McDonald’s restaurants nationwide at the same time as the movie release, and bringing fun to customers of all ages around the world. In fact, it’s probably the most popular McDonald’s Toy set to date.

A set of eight Minion toys was released by McDonald's in 2013, and while they haven't had much time to appreciate in value, a full set is valued between $80 and $120. Given how popular the movie franchise is, it’s no surprise to find out that Jerry the Minion is particularly popular.


Furby! These strange, tiny stuffed toys could speak, blink and, most importantly, learn from previous experiences. The Furby toys from the late 1990s were so popular that McDonald's caught on to the trend and created two separate toy lines to keep up with demand.

In 1998, a varied set of many colorful Furbies were debuted. Though the Happy Meal Furbies couldn’t speak, they were still fun to collect. If you have an unopened, full set of furbies figurine in your possession, then it could be worth a lot more money.

5.Fraggle Rock

Jim Henson’s Fraggle Rock was a massively successful children’s show in the late 1980s. A group of zany puppets with distinctive personalities sang and danced to a fun and easy-to-remember chorus. The show proved to be relatively popular with kids, and so, McDonald’s promptly deployed a set of Fraggle Rock toys to ride the Fraggle Rock hype.

A complete set of six toys can sell for $20 opened or $300 unopened. However, their sentimental value may outweigh their monetary value, especially for fans of the ’80s show.

6.Hot Wheels

Since Hot Wheels were introduced by American toy manufacturer Mattel in the 1960s, it has become one of the most popular toys of all time. McDonald’s has jump on that toy cars bandwagon. The fast-food chain has been gifting these miniature toy cars to children since 1979.

A full set of the 1983 Hot Wheels toys, which consists of 14 cars, quickly sells for hundreds of dollars. An avid collector might gladly pay up to $800 for these vintage McDonald’s toys. That’s a decent profit!

7.Transforming Food (Changeables)

Imagine if your hamburger turned into a robot. The popularity of transforming robots from 1987 film Changeables seems to have inspired the release of McDonald's Changeables. These toys were able to transform into robots and dinosaurs from food items on the companies menu, such as burgers, chips, sodas, and ice cream.

McDonald’s released three series of these toys. Recently, a sealed set of 8 Changeables from 1989 recently sold for $100.00.


How about a little Peanuts nostalgia? Everyone knows his beloved sidekick Snoopy is the best character. In 1998 and 1999, the lovable canine character Snoopy travelled the world as part of McDonald's Happy Meals. The result? Fifty-six unique Snoopy toys, 28 for each world tour. Each toy represented a different country.

In 2001, McDonald's collaborated with "Peanuts" to release 16 different Snoopy toys, aptly titled "The Many Lives of Snoopy." A single tour set is still valuable, often selling for about $150.
