McDonalds x Cactus Plant Flea Market Happy Meal Toy Collectibles Are Being Listed For Thousands of Dollars on Resale

The toys found in the McDonald’s Cactus Plant Flea Market (CPFM) adult Happy Meal are selling for thousands of dollars online. One set of these that was listed for $300,000 on eBay sold for an undisclosed amount, which was the “best offer” received within a short time. Currently there is another single Cactus Buddy figure that has been listed on Grailed for $35,999.

While a single Birdie the Early Bird, Hamburglar, Grimace, and Cactus Buddy figure is going for anything between $20 - $40 online, a single set of 150 sealed toys was recently sold for $2,400. This is believed to be the highest amount paid so far for McDonald’s x CPFM toys. These toys came as part of the special meal which included a classic Big Mac or 10-piece Chicken McNuggets, a drink, and a side of fries.

It is not the first time that McDonald’s meals have come with an item that customers want to collect or resell as we saw not so long ago when they included Pokémon cards. Although the most expensive card, holographic Pikachu, was only going for about $15 at the time, it’s possible that the price of those limited edition Pokémon cards will go up.

The creator of CPFM is Cynthia Lu, a member of Pharell Williams’s circle. The collaboration between McDonald’s and CPFM is a unique one, and puts emphasis on the potential of two very different brands coming together to create value through hype and scarcity by being “limited edition.” CPFM is one of the hottest streetwear brands of the last few years for Gen-Z. By working with CPFM, McDonald’s is hoping to increase their relevance with younger audiences, which is similar to their goals when previously working with Travis Scott to launch a McDonald’s meal.
