McDonald’s Happy Meal Toys You Threw Away That Are Worth An Insane Amount Of Money Today

Growing up, a well-placed McDonald’s happy meal toy could make an otherwise mundane meal feel considerably more memorable. A good happy meal toy was all that any kid could ask for, even if the novelty often wore off within a few hours. However, when viewed with more mature eyes,¬†the toys quickly lose their magic; what was once essential is now just worthless¬†plastic meant to bait children into eating the unhealthiest food imaginable. Well, perhaps worthless isn’t the right word, as there are some happy meal toys that are worth a lot of money.¬†

Ebay¬†users have gone mad bidding on the most¬†valuable¬†McDonald’s happy¬†meal¬†toys. While it might seem absurd to drop over $50 on something that was once given out for free, this isn’t the first time¬†seemingly worthless¬†objects have garnered a high price on the website;¬†Pok√©mon cards¬†routinely sell for more money than any piece of cardboard ever should. The farther back one looks, the rarer the toys become, and happy meal prizes from the ’80s and¬†’90s¬†tend to fetch the highest prices.¬†

If you ever frequented the restaurant, you’ll probably remember a lot of these toys from your childhood. In that case, get ready to feel happy, then sad, because you’re about to be reminded of a lot of McDonald’s toys you’ll wish you still had.¬†
