Tips and warnings

  • One of the easiest ways to sell Happy Meal toys is to sell them as a lot. A lot is when you sell several items for one total price. This is a great way to sell those items that aren't in mint condition or do not have their original plastic wrapping.
  • The more rare the Happy Meal toy the more you will be able to get out of the sale. If it's a rare item remember to add that to your description.
  • Happy Meal Toys are not suitable for children under 3 years of age. Please see the product description included in the packaging for appropriate ages.
