What is the Most Valuable Mickey Mouse Toy?


The most valuable Mickey Mouse toy is a rare clockwork Mickey Mouse motorcycle (circa 1939) in its original box. It sold at Christie's, London in June 1997 for $83,650. Mickey Mouse could well be regarded as the most recognizable cartoon character in the world. This particular toy was bought in a British Woolworth's store, as a 9th birthday present for the seller's uncle in June 1930. Taking into account that the famous cartoon rodent first appeared in April 1928, the toy is considered one of the earliest examples of a Mickey Mouse in existence. Made of lithographed and colored tin plate, it represents "ratty" Mickey - the early form of the cartoon character, who had a longer nose and leaner body than he does today.
