Fortune? Most are $80.

I remember getting a kid's meal at Burger Chef around 1971. It came with a little red plastic car that was weighted with a single ball bearing. Wonder if those are a thing.

I don't have any of those, but I do have a (nearly) complete set of McDonald's glassware.

/With the requisite lead paint that made everything taste tangier.

That's a fortune for people who eat at McDonalds.

I remember getting the change-ables, but every damn time it would be the hamburger one.  They were no match for a bb gun or a quarter stick.

In his defence Subby did quit his job once when he won a free Big Mac.

A literal laugh out loud.

Reminded me of one night in college - a buddy was convinced.....absolutely convinced he was winning the lottery that night and threw down his credit card for an epic night of drinking. We tried to talk him out of it but he insisted.

He did not win.

Ninety bucks for a complete set of 40 plushies.

Look at me rollin' in the dough.

Well la-di-da, we got ourselves a Rockefeller here.

I have one of the McNugget Buddies. Also have a bunch of Flintstone glasses/mugs

I actually have half the power ranger toys.  Right now they are bath toys for my kids, so the value has probably plummeted from $5 a piece to $1.

 Had 1,8,13. With 1 they had two versions. First where robots later came the dinosaurs

Really? Crap, I guess I shouldn't have strapped an Estes rocket engine to the Mac Tonight guy. He was never seen again.

I had a complete set of the '87 food transformers.  I'm pretty sure I gave them to my niece.  If she even had a little fun playing with them, I'm not going to regret the $140 that they'd be worth now.
2017-11-06 01:01:34 PM  
I MAY have one of the changables.  Wasn't mine to begin with, but still got it not long after release. Need to check the box.
2017-11-06 01:58:43 PM  
I was in the service with a guy that collected every single McDonalds happy meal toy.  I'm sure he has all of these.
2017-11-06 02:49:20 PM  
I remember in the mid 80's the happy meal toy was a set of legos. Every week they would release a new set and once you had all 8 sets you could build something epic using all 8. I got 7 and then week 8 repeated week 7's toy and then they moved on to another campaign. I gave up collecting that day.

I have a Slappy Squirrel riding a motorcycle with Skippy in the side car.

I have no idea how I got it. I don't have kids and never knowingly bought a happy meal.
2017-11-06 03:40:17 PM  
I'll check the girl friends car, it's never been cleaned
2017-11-06 03:41:29 PM  
I have a couple of those mini-beanie-babies.  A few still in the plastic.  But definitely not a full set.
2017-11-06 03:55:12 PM  
How much for the Animaniacs Sodomy Wolf toy?

I have a cousin who thought he was going to get rich off Beanie Babies. He didn't.

My dad worked in the health department and one day (mid 1970s) brought home a McDonald's "deal with boredom while in the car" packet.  It was wildly bigger (ok, less than 1" thick, but that's a lot of paper and thin cardboard) than anything I saw during that time (like the combined "bored in the car" inventory at Toy's R us), and I've never heard of anything like it again.
/long before happy meal
//or mcplay place
///actually I think a *few* existed.  But I don't think I was ever there.
2017-11-06 04:17:21 PM  
"A fortune" being, apparently, $80 with no bids.

In that case, I'm rich as fark.
2017-11-06 06:00:26 PM  
I remember on the news years ago a young lady buying happy meals with the beanies in them so she could get as many as she could. She would give the meals to the homeless and keep the beanies. Seemed like she was spending a lot on them. Bet she lost a lot in her "investments".

Like everything else, they are only worth what someone else will pay for them.

I don't recognize the one that looks like Pumba from the Lion King.

Not a prize but, the coolest thing to ever come out of McDonald's were the happy meal boxes shaped like Dukes of Hazzard cars. They weren't around very long, but i made my parents take me there nearly every night to get a new one.  I'd say circa 1983? Anyone else remember those?
