McDonald's sleeping bag

Does anyone know anything about McDonald's collectibles?  I have an old sleeping bag from the 80's that looks like a big order of McDonald's french fries.  A friend was here today helping me sort stuff, and when I asked her to throw it on the garage sale pile she said, "You know, that could be worth something."  I've been Googling around, trying to get info on it, but I've come up with bupkis so far.  (My Google-fu, it is weak.)  Lots of other McDonald's collectibles, but no sleeping bags.

It's about in the condition you'd expect something like that to be in after a childhood filled with slumber parties and sleep overs and then being stuffed in various storage closets for years.  A little faded, but doesn't look to be stained.  (I haven't unrolled it to take a good look yet.)  No tears or anything.  I kind of doubt that it's rare and valuable.  But if they were made by the millions I'd think I would have at least found something in Google Images.

So, what do you think?  Have I hit the jackpot of McDonald's collectibles, or is this something so mundane that no one has ever bothered to take a picture and put it on the internet?  Is there anything that hasn't been photographed and put on the internet?


  1. I googled it and got nothin. Try selling it on eBay! :)

  2. I second the vote for eBay - I had a stretch where I was a total sucker for vintage 80s lunchboxes on there... their condition mattered to me as a buyer, but really it was more about having THAT THING I remembered from childhood, and it was okay if it was a little banged up.


Thanks for taking the time to read and comment. I appreciate it!
