Leonardo Collection dolls were made primarily in the 1990s (they may have started in the 1980s, that I am not positive as there were so many doll sellers ramping up in this time period). The company that makes them has been around since the 1970s.

Here is a link to the company Lesser and Pavey (which is still around):

www.leonardo.co.uk/.../

Leonardo Collection dolls were sold in places like Hallmark stores and gift shops in the US and around the world. Toward the end of the doll hey day, you could find them in just about any store that had shelf space to sell them as businesses tried to get their share of that doll rush.

These were most likely sold separately but placed next to each other on the shelf since they coordinated. There were very few dolls boxed together except for the occasional theme doll like "twins" or "Jack and Jill" or "Hansel and Gretel".

It is possible these were considered twins, but without the original box it will be hard confirm that.

The marks are mostly the mold numbers for the head and body.

If you are looking to resell them, the market for dolls is very soft at the moment and has been for about the past few years. Dolls similar to yours (there is a boy and girl out there in tartan plaids), retail on eBay for less than $15 for the pair. Many of the dolls sit unsold for years.

There are very few of the LC dolls that have held their value in today's market, which is quite sad. Perhaps they will increase in value if you can hold on to them for a while longer (up to 10 years as the market is cyclical in that way).

You are most welcome.

I only ever sold dolls in the US and mostly at Hallmark stores (and the occasional personal items online or at flea markets and yard sales).

It is possible they had a series in other countries that differed from what I saw here. I have never seen a father doll in any doll series when I sold them. Grandma and grandpa, yes, but a dad, no.

There was a series of figurines (not dolls) with a mother and one child. And at least one with a mom and a toddler and a baby. What you remember could very well be a regional item. I know many dolls had regional versions that were never seen in the US.

The thing is now, I would have thought I would have learned about them through the internet since the world is so much smaller now that Google links us :)

Since the company is still in business and has a contact email, maybe they can tell you more about the series:

I am curious to hear what they say. I hope they are helpful.

Post back what you learn. Thanks for chatting!
