If you like Disney collectibles, then you likely have noticed that McDonald’s offers quite the selection with their Happy Meals toys. Every once in a while, McDonald’s will release a new Disney toy collection with their Happy Meals — and they tend to become immensely popular among fans, often selling out.
Another reason the toys are so popular is that it is tough to collect all of the toys, as customers will never know if the McDonald’s they are going to has their desired toy available. It really is quite a challenge and can be disappointing to those who want to complete their sets, but are not able to.
This is not something new, as eBay sellers have been putting up Disney Happy Meal toys online for years, but clearly, customers keep wanting more!
It seems that the popularity of these toys and the desire to collect them has grown so big that people are now turning to eBay to purchase them! If we take a look, we can see that the current Disney Happy Meal collection, which offers both Star Wars and Disney Princesses, is already being sold, with some asking prices around $4.99 apiece — each item costs $1.88 in-store — or nearly $40.00 for the set.
The current Disney Princess set includes:
- Tiana from Princess and the Frog
- Cinderella from Cinderella
- Ariel from The Little Mermaid
- Jasmine from Aladdin
- Moana from Moana
- Belle from Beauty and the Beast
- Snow White from Snow White
- Mulan from Mulan
And, the Star Wars set features:
- Darth Vadar
- Boba Fett
- Kylo Ren
- Poe Dameron
- Sith Trooper
Previously, McDonald’s was selling a Disney World inspired Happy Meal toy set which had various Disney World attractions that all connected together to form a train. The asking price for this full set is nearly $80.00!
That collection included:
- Goofy on a train from Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway
- Mickey and Minnie Mouse in the car from Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway
- Mickey Mouse on the Mission Space attraction at EPCOT
- Minnie Mouse riding the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction at Magic Kingdom
- Donald Duck in a teacup from Mad Tea Party
- Pluto in a boat from the Jungle Cruise
- Mickey Mouse at the Hollywood Tower Hotel from the Tower of Terror
- Daisy Duck riding Soarin’ Around the World (and Spaceship Earth) at EPCOT
- Goofy and the Yeti at Expedition Everest from Disney’s Animal Kingdom
- Minnie Mouse in a Time Rover from DINOSAUR
There are also a variety of older Disney Happy Meal toys available for Disney fans to purchase, so if you are someone who is missing a piece from a previous collection, you can search eBay to see if someone else is offering it.
Although the prices for each toy are not astronomical, they are certainly more than the standard retail price at McDonald’s. And, it is interesting to see how many sellers have the toys, and how many people are purchasing them!
Would you purchase a Happy Meal Disney toy off eBay if you were missing it in your collection?
