Grab a free Happy Meal with the McDonald’s Rewards program.

With the McDonald’s Rewards program, you will earn 100 points for every $1 spent. Once you earn 6,000 points (or $60 spent), you can exchange your points for a free Happy Meal (up to $4.59 value). Of course, that means you’ll get two Disney 100 Years of Wonder toys with your free Happy Meal.

RELATED: This is just one of the many restaurant rewards programs that you should join.


You can purchase McDonald’s Happy Meal toys for $1.59 – $1.69.

McDonald’s Happy Meal toys come with the purchase of a Happy Meal (duh). Each Happy Meal costs $3.69 – $4.59 and, in addition to the toy, comes with an entree, kid-size fries, apple slices, and a drink.

But did you know you can get the toy without buying a Happy Meal? That’s right, you can usually purchase the toys separately for $1.59 – $1.69 each, depending on your McDonald’s location. Essentially you can get at least two for the price of a Happy Meal.

TIP: If you’re a member of the McDonald’s Rewards program, you can get a free Happy Meal for 6,000 points ($60 spent).


You can always opt for ice cream instead of a Happy Meal toy.

If you don’t want a toy with your Happy Meal, you can ask for an ice cream cone instead (valued at $1.69). This is an easy way to get a dessert if you aren’t so ay-yi-yi about whatever the toy happens to be that cycle. This option is not available through the McDonald’s Rewards app, so you’ll have to be in store or in the drive-thru to ask an employee directly.


Not all McDonald’s toys are going to be valuable, but certain characteristics improve the likelihood.

Typically, there are two different criteria that can make a McDonald’s toy an expensive collectible: 1) they use the original McDonald’s characters or designs, or 2) they are a riff on an item that’s already a popular collectible (such as Beanie Babies in the early 2000s).

It’s not always easy to know in advance which toys will be sought-after collectibles in the future, but those criteria point you in the right direction. Don’t expect your Sing 2 toys from late 2021 to fetch a pretty penny; not all toys are created (and collected) equally.


The next Happy Meal Toys are going to be the Crash Bandicoot Toys from Dec. 5 to Dec. 25.

According to rumors online, the next set of Happy Meal Toys are going to be the Crash Bandicoot toys. We’ll be updating you with more information once the toys are leaked online.

Here are the Happy Meal Toys you can expect to see in 2023:

According to the kids’ meal wiki on Fandom, here’s what Happy Meal toys are coming in 2023:

  • Crash Bandicoot: Dec. 5 – 25
  • Squishmallows: Dec. 26 – Jan. 22



Cactus Plant toys are the most valuable in recent history.

Many of us can remember the hysteria that surrounded the Teenie Beanie Babies in the early 2000s, some of which are still being sold for $8,000 each on eBay. That being said, here are the most expensive McDonald’s Happy Meal toys. Keep in mind that these are estimations based on the resale market, so prices can change:

  • NeoPets (2004): A set of 16 NeoPet plushes sold for $59.99 on eBay.
  • Lego Bionicle (2001): A collection of six McDonald’s Bionicle sets sold for $100.99 on eBay.
  • Halloween McNuggets (1992): All six McNugget characters sold for $110.50 on eBay.
  • Pokemon Battle Match Cards (2021): A set of unopened Pokemon Battle Match Cards from 2021 specifically can sell for $202.50 or more on eBay.
  • Cactus Plant (Adult Happy Meal) figures (2022): Just one of these figures can sell for up to $2,000 on eBay, but the average we’ve seen is around $159.


Kids can find free games and activities at the Happy Meal website.
