McDONALD'S TOYS & COLLECTABLES
RELEASED IN NEW ZEALAND

This is not a list of what I have in stock at any time.  Rather, it's a catalogue of all significant items released in New Zealand.  While I have 95+ percent of items released here I don't always have stocks of (a) rare, early items; (b) extremely popular toys such as Snoopy's World Tour; or (c) the very latest sets.  (I'm currently finding it very difficult to keep up with demand from foreign collectors for the 1999 sets, for example.) 

COMPOSITION OF SETS:  Where the description in the list is simply "four items" this means that there is a Birdie, Grimace, Hamburglar and Ronald in the set.  Unless stated otherwise, prices for sets are the prices for single items multiplied by the number of items in the set.

DATES ETC:  Toys and collectables are listed in order of their release in New Zealand, but some of the dates of release are my best guess.  If local collectors have more accurate information, it would be appreciated if they would let me have it.  I'd also be grateful for advice of any amendments or additions to the list.

CONDITION:  The assumption made throughout is that toys are in good condition.  Worn, damaged or dirty McDonald's toys have no value. PRICES: are expressed in US dollars. 

MAIL ORDERS: postage is charged at cost.  Foreign orders are sent by economy air.

Note: MIP = Mint in Packet
