1. Beetlejuice (1990)
Alright, so these were just finger puppets, but they are amazing just because they were based on the badass cartoon.
2. The Simpsons (1990)
It’s hard to believe, but The Simpsons weren’t always the tie-in merchandise machine that they are today, and in 1990 these were about the only toys you could get.
3. Beauty and the Beast (1991)
These were actually really well made, both Belle and Beast had multiple movable parts and lot’s of details — a rarity in fast food toys.
4. The Lion King (1994)
Clearly, Scar or Mufasa was the toy to get!
5. Walt Disney Classic Collector Glasses
OK, these were not toys, but they were the first valuable set of glasses you ever owned.
6. Pocahontas (1995)
Just like the Beauty and the Beast toys, these toys were well made, with lots of details and movable parts. But, I feel bad for the poor kid that got stuck with the Grandmother Willow toy — how were you supposed to play with that?
7. Toy Story (1995)
These puppets were such a hot commodity during the 1995 holiday season that most Burger King locations sold out.
8. Scooby-Doo (1996)
Scooby-Doo got no love in the mid ’90s, so these toys were a god send. Well, minus Scrappy Doo, he sucked.
9. Universal Monsters (1997)
Were kids really into old horror movie monsters? Probably not, but that’s what made them cool.
10. Rugrats (1999)
One of those rare times when there is not a bad in toy in the batch!
