Special Note on the McDonald’s Happy Meal Toys: The Happy Meal toys are grouped into 345 catalogued lots plus some uncatalogued box lots at the end. We have sorted the toys by year and series, so each lot in the catalog represents all of that particular year and series toy that we have to sell. Lots vary in size from a couple dozen to several hundred individual pieces. We didn’t have time to count the number of pieces or number of sets in each lot, but in general, most lots will contain at least one or two complete sets, with some having 10 or more sets. The way I think about how to value each lot is to look up each particular series online and determine the average sale price per piece for that series, then multiply the average price by the number of pieces in the lot being sold at the auction. Some series average $1 each, some average $4 to $5 each. For example, a lot with 100 pieces that average $1 each would be worth $100. A lot with 50 pieces that average $4 each would be worth $200. It’s then up to you to decide how much you want to pay for each lot at the auction. That’s what makes it interesting.
