We started collecting McDonald’s Happy Meal toys since late 1980’s . Happy Meal Toys back then was single color and few items. Sometimes are are not part of the promotional items – They are bought separately . Unfortunately, All of our Mc Donald Happy Meal toys that we collected were lost over the years and the only ones left in good conditions were bought in the late 1980’s , we have the Garfield car set (4 pieces ) way back in 1988 . Mc Donald’s Happy Meal collectors would have an annual catalog where mint and rare toys are featured .
Collecting other fast food chain promotional toy items soon followed , among the popular ones are Jollibee , Burger King , Wendy’s , KFC and 7/11
This is a two piece set of Walky Talkies R2 D2 and C-3PO Figure complete with China -made batteries issued by Jollibee Food Corporation for the Philippine market in time for the release of Star Wars Episode 2 movie Attack of the Clones around May 2002 – This set was not a regular item and was bought separately upon purchase of Jollibee value meals . This was initially sold at Php 299 or around $8.00 at that time.
Now, the same items being sold at an Ebay site would cost around $39 Australian dollars. Unfortunately , We only bought 1 set of this item.
Jollibee is also synonymous to Kiddie Meals . Jollibee toys are sometimes more collectible compared to Mc Donalds and other international brands. One reason is that Jollibee Kiddie Meal toys are issued mostly in the Philippines and countries where large Filipino expats lived. We used to meet the marketing head and promotions several years back and the toys are more limited in quantities compared to the international brands.
Simpson Family – Burger King- Philippines used to issue collectible promotional toys, which is called Burger King Jr. Meal Toys – This 10 piece family set comes with a special promotion with 1 Homer Simpson figure ( chef with burned face) that was raffled -off to lucky 1,000 customers way back in 2001 – This comes with minimum purchase.
There were a lot of good toy sets that was issued by Burger King and Filipino collectors went crazy over the nice looking toys , plastic were durable but these toys does not come CHEAP . The value meal package were a little more expensive compared to the two other popular restaurant chains. Eventually, Burger King -Philippines discontinued the issuance of the toys and concentrated on promotional items instead .
MC Donald 4 piece school set – This was issued with the intention of selling the dual functional toy set – One comes with note pad , stamp pad , pencil sharpener and this also comes with ruler .
This is one of the most saleable items for the year .
This are just few of the items that i would like to share with my fellow collectors , This set are not that expensive, But this will be forever cherish in our memories .
Searching Catalog– site have categories in which one can neatly arrange their collections. Stamps are popular collectible items and on the bucket list.
