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

McDonaldland Amusement Park:
click here for larger photo, then click back on your browser to return here.Is this the most extraordinary McDonald's set yet? Originally released in South Korea in May, it's certainly one of the most elaborate to be released anywhere, comprising four toys plus tracks and other attachments which together make up two rides in an amusement park. The first toy to be released - Ronald in a yellow racer which is propelled around a red track - comprises six pieces by itself! (Think what a nightmare these toys are going to be on the secondary market. McSpace is bad enough, requiring 12 pieces to make up each rocket. Amusement Park looks as if it will comprise about 25.) The other toys in the set, each with its accompanying sections of ride, are Grimace on a rocker, which fits into the end of the red track; Hamburglar on a green slide; and Birdie in a blue "pool" at the bottom of the slide. Once again, McDonald's have issued a special takeaway paper bag with the set.

US$1.50 each; US$2.50 MIP

Snoopy's World Tour:
There's a lot of confusion about this series, so here's the full story. 

There have been three releases of Snoopy World Tour toys:

(1) The first set, released in Asia and New Zealand in 1998, comprised 28 toys: Alaska, Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hawaii, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Korea, Latin America, Malaysia, Mexico, Mongolia,
New Zealand, Norway, the Philippines, Scotland, Singapore, Spain, Switzerland, Taiwan, Thailand, United Kingdom, the United States and the Wild West. A boxed set was also released.

(2) This first set was then re-released in Europe in 1999 but with three differences: Latin America was dropped; three new toys - Argentina, Peru and Venezuela - were added; and the Mexico in the European release was different from that in the first set.

(3) The second set, released in south-east Asia in July 1999 and then in New Zealand in October/November 1999, comprises Argentina, Austria, Brazil, China, Fiji, Finland, Hawaii, Holland, Hong King, Indonesia, Ireland, Jamaica, Japan, Korea, Macau, Mexico, New Zealand, Panama, Peru, Poland, Romania, Russia, Taiwan, Thailand, Trinidad, the United States, Venezuela and Yugoslavia.  It will be seen that in eleven cases - China, Hawaii, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Mexico, New Zealand, Taiwan, Thailand and the United States - there are now two versions for each country involved (three for the United States, if you count Wild West from the first series as representing the US).  The set was distributed with a special takeaway paper bag and a boxed set was also released.

PRICES: 

First set - contact me for prices for loose or MIP toys, singles or sets.

Second set - I have MIP and boxed sets only for sale at this stage. Loose toys will become available over the next few months. MIP sets are US$75, including shipping to the US. Boxed sets are US$135, also including shipping to the US.
