    Ok, so I'm not really a Happy Meal toy collector, but I do have a few I'm proud to have in my collection. Mainly Scrooge McDuck and Lunchpad from Ducktales, Baby Fozzie of Muppet Babies, the whole Fraggle Rock set (including under three toys), and the whole Dinosaurs set (again including under three). But I went to a McDonalds yesterday cause I honestly want that Beanie Baby of Grimace, I don't collect Beanie Babies, but I just love Grimace, sadly they didn't have him, just some purple monkey, and probably thought it was odd this grown man was willing to buy a happy meal so he can get his hands on the toy.

    Plus not too long ago, I saw at my local Goodwill these Disney Sleeping Beauty figures, and one was of Maleficent, so I just had to have her. So that's in my collection as well.

    Geez, maybe I am a Happy Meal toy collector, .

    Anyway, has anyone ever thought "I really want that Happy meal toy" , I'm really hoping it's not just me.

      Ever since outgrowing them, I've gotten them on three occasions. I got a ton of Star Wars toys during the Revenge of the Sith promotion at Burger King (most of which are right here on my computer desk), and about three Nintendo ones at Burger King not too long ago. I also got one Star Wars toy from a McDonald's promotion for the Clone Wars about a year ago, which is a giant Chewbacca bobblehead in an AT-ST.

      Yeah, the first two aren't Happy Meal toys, but who cares?

        I have all the Batman The Animated Series figures/cars, as well as all of the Batman Returns promotional toys/cars from when that movie came out. I even have the Batman The Animated Series happy meal boxes that the toys came in. The toys that I've always wished I had were the Fraggle Rock toys and, though they aren't McDonald's, the Jetsons toys (including the under 3 ones) from Wendy's. But a full set of toys from anywhere can be pretty expensive. I was lucky to find a set of the Batman Animated toys on ebay for 9 dollars. I had all but one of the figures and bought the set just to get the missing Batgirl figure that I needed. All my toys are still in their original bags. Another set I would like to have would be the transformer-like food toys that McDonald's had. For instance, a shake that would transform into a robot.

          All my Happy Meal toys are still ming in their bags as well.

          For anyone that's interested by the way, I have a ton of extra Jim Henson's Disosaurs toys from McDonalds. I would be very willing to trade them to anyone, whoms interested. PM if you happen to be interested.

          Anyhow, yeah, I sometimes find myself very interested in buying more Happy Meal (mostly Happy Meal, but sometimes other places, like I want those Muppets From Space toys from Wendys and Toy Story and TMNT from Burger King). Right now though, I'm going to be bugging McDonalds to get that Grimace.

              I'm a Custer buff and wanted to get his Happy Meal toy from the movie Night at the Museum II(or whatever the hell it's called). Unfortunately, I was piss broke at the time, and didn't have the means to buy it.

                I actually bought the Ronald McDonald and Grimace Beanie Babies the day before yesterday.

                I buy Happy Meal toys all the time. Last time I got all the Hello Kitty watches. They are all over my steering wheel in my car. lol

                  Thanks, I'll keep that in mind, it's not really that I'm trying to unload them on anyone or anything, just thought I'd throw that out there.

                  Anyhow, I'm happy cause today I finally got my Grimace Beanie Baby toy,

                    I buy them whenever I see them at thrift stores/flea markets/yard sales. Happy meal toys are the toys I mostly played with as a kid

                          Well I got two more of these McDonalds Beanie Babies, Skunkers the Skunk and Fluffball the Guinea pig. Some of these some to be going for pretty good money on ebay, so I figure why not get a few more, .

                          I'll never give up my Grimace though,

                                Well yesterday, I was a pretty happy little Happy Meal Collector, .

                                My mother got me four Happy Meal toys still in their package. They are the Genie and Iago from Disney's Aladdin and the King of the Thieves, Tasmanian Devil (Taz) from Space Jam and a house for Hermit Crab finger puppet Eric Carne marked 1987, . I loved them and was happy to add those four to my some but growing collection.

                                I also really want those Pokemon toys from Burger King that was made for the first movie. I remember trying to get a whole set back in the day, but I wasn't even close. I only ones I remember having were Sandshew, Nidorino, and Hitmonlee, all keychains. I would of been happy if I got my Squritle, who has always been my favorite Pokemon.

                                    I remember those transformers they had. I think they had a hamburger, fries, and a small milkshake. Wendy's had GoBots too back in 1987 I think. My favorite McDonald's happy meal toys were Hotwheels cars and Legos.

                                      Happy Meals and everything about them sucked. More like Crappy Meals.
                                      I can't think of anything worth putting as a signature.

                                          Just an FYI you can save a dollar or so by buying the toy only. I haven't collected McDonalds toys since the 90's but at least back then you could request the toy only and forget the nasty meal. Though the cookies that come with the meal were good.

                                          I still have some oddball McDonald's toys like the Disney story book characters that come inside little plastic cases that are shaped like books. I have a fox dressed like Robin Hood; I can't remember the others though. I also have white Power Ranger and vehicle mint still in bag, plus the Bambi figures, Meeko and the Talking Tree from Pocohantas movie, 2 of Bobby's World plus I have some of the California Raisins from Hardees. I wish they were worth something. I actually started collecting thinking some things were cool and would be valuable to resell later. I always wanted the baby Muppets but could never find them.
