McDonald’s toys can be valued either by an antique toy appraiser or by checking eBay for identical toys and comparing average prices over a few weeks. McDonald’s toy values are also dependent upon the condition, rarity of the toy, and its authenticity.
Genuine McDonald’s toys are typically stamped with the trademark M on the bottom. Older toys are generally worth more, but exceptionally rare toys can also be valuable, even if they are not old. Toys that are still in their original packaging are typically worth more, while chipped paint, missing parts or stains can all reduce the value of a toy.
