The Ronald McDonald Bear Beanie Baby is a small limited edition teddy bear in the range of Beanie Babies.

Background

The bear was released alongside the range of promotional Beanie Babies produced for McDonalds by the manufacturer Ty in 2004. They were known as ‘Teenie Beanies’ as they were smaller than the original line of toys, and were given away free with the purchase of Happy Meals at participating restaurants. There were twelve toys in total, but the Ronald McDonald Bear was never offered to the public.

The Ronald McDonald Bear was given away as a free gift to the attendees as the 2004 Worldwide McDonald's Owner/Operator Convention in Florida. The bear is white with red ears, and wears the same yellow outfit as the company’s clown mascot Ronald McDonald.

The bear’s tag features a poem, which reads:

“25 years of Happy Meal fun
All around the world we're second to none
And Ronald the bear
Knows it won't quit
Cause kids with Happy Meals
Shout, "I'm lovin' it"!”

How much is a Ronald McDonald Bear Beanie Baby worth?

Although the bear was never available to purchase through stores, examples can be found fairly easily on auction sites such as eBay. At the height of the Beanie Baby collecting craze examples of these bears could sell for more than $200.

However, today they have little value on the secondary market and the majority of toys listed on eBay remain unsold. Those that do can usually be found for less than $5.
