The most valuable McDonald’s toys of all time are part of the Tarzan 1999 McDonalds Happy Meal Complete Set.

Tarzan was an incredible Disney movie. All of the characters appeared as part of a McDonald’s Happy Meal toy campaign, and now they’re worth some serious dough.

If you have the complete set in great condition, then you could be looking at a price tag of around $450!

That’s crazy considering the price of a Happy Meal back in the late ’90s was just a couple of dollars!

2. Vintage 1986 McDonald’s Halloween Buckets – $210

I don’t think I’d want to leave these on my doorstep in case somebody stole them!

Each bearing a different spooky face in traditional Halloween ghostly white, witchy green and pumpkin orange, they help to bring ghoulish fun to every Halloween party.

Just don’t let someone walk off with one; they can have the chocolate, but the buckets stay with you!

Next up in our most valuable McDonald’s toys list is the super-popular McDonalds 2001 Lego Bionicle Set.

Complete with their own individual disc and bringing a toned-down likeness of the original Bionicle characters, these little figurines are super exciting.

They make me feel like a kid again, although that’s not a hard job considering I spend every day writing about toys and games from my childhood.

If you have a cool $200 burning a hole in your pocket, then why not spend it on this 101 Dalmatians 1996 Official Happy Meal Collector Set.

Complete with a box that’s lined with a kind of velvet material (let’s face it, it’s not real), this collectors box is a lovely keepsake.

With a little box for each Dalmatian character, you can keep your four-legged friends safe and sound no matter where you go.

5. One Piece McDonald’s Happy Meal Toys – $149

Gaming fans will have already perked up at this one. If you’re a lover of the best WonderSwan games, then these One Piece McDonald’s Happy Meal Toys will be right up your street!

One Piece characters have since spread from the WonderSwan, but I never guessed that they would end up in McDonald’s stores.

Though, I guess the most valuable McDonald’s Pokémon cards should have told me otherwise!

All the gang are here so grab your favourite fighter or collect the whole team!

6. Astrosniks Happy Meal Toys – $149

There’s something about these Astrosniks Happy Meal Toys that makes me smile every single time.

Looking a little like a cross between the Clangers and the crocodiles from the Nutella jars, these characters are so unique and interesting.

And, more importantly, they all have their own funny little personalities.

7. 1982 McDonald’s Dukes Of Hazzard General Lee – $175

One of the most iconic cars of all time also made it’s way into the McDonald’s toy form in the early 80s. This 1982 McDonald’s Dukes of Hazzard General Lee was a huge win for the company and still fetches a pretty penny today.

Seriously, imagine pulling this out of your Happy Meal box! And then imagine selling it on again for $175 in 2024!

This would make a great piece for your desk or workspace, a reminder of one of the greatest TV shows of all time as well as being one of the best cars in the business!

Sitting in the tenth spot on our list of the most valuable McDonald’s toys of all time are these dino-licious McDonald’s Changeables Transformers toys!

Ok, so they’re not as cool as Optimus Prime and the gang, but they’re still a bit of fun and a cool piece of McDonalds memorabilia!
