Who Are We?
The McDonald's Collectors Club is for people of all ages that have an appreciation for all things McDonald's, celebrating our 25th anniversary in 2015!
Each spring, we have a convention where we gather to buy, trade, sell, and talk about our love of the hobby. We also have a quarterly newsletter which talks about current and past promotions, unusual McDonald's items, and a place to buy, trade or sell McDonald's items.
The club began in 1990 in Fremont, Ohio with 18 charter members. Linda Gegorski had been collecting McDonalds since the early 1980's so she decided to rent the Fremont Holiday Inn Ball Room and offered tables to approximately 50 people who had subscribed to two fast food newsletters. The Charter members chose Linda as the first president and Jim Wolfe of Stowe, Ohio as secretary. Jim was a charter member of the Coca Cola Club. His knowledge of club structure resulted in the original by-laws. All officers, committee chairman, and convention committee members are volunteers. No one is paid a salary.
We also contribute money to Ronald McDonald House Charities, Inc. Its mission is to create, find and support programs that directly improve the health and well being of children.
Why Collect McDonald's Toys?
At the McDonald's Collectors Club, we collect toys for fun, for love and for the memories. Some of us have been eating at McDonald's for over sixty years and playing with the Happy Meal toys, with licenses like Barbie, Mattel Hot Wheels, Beanie Babies, Star Trek, Cabbage Patch Kids, Disney, Lego, Matchbox, Coke and Zippo.
What you do with your toys is up to you - store them, resell them, even post about them online. Collecting fast food toys is the type of hobby that splinter off into any other sort of hobby you wish.
With just a collector's book and a keen eye, you can find many McDonald's toys and other items available for cheap at local garage sales and thrift shops. It's a lot fun for the whole family.
The links at the top of the page can show you the many directions McDonald's collecting can lead you.
