Anyone know what these dolls are? I found them at an estate sale.

My first thought was it was a David Craft Doll or a Beatoy doll or Darice Kit doll, but the faces are not right. Most of the clone dolls tried to emulate the sweet and happy faces of the CPK. Your dolls almost have a little bit of "I just sucked on a lemon face" which makes them a little more interesting to me.

If it was an original CPK, it would have the Xavier Roberts stamp on the butt.

My best estimate is that these are mom made product from a craft studio.

When you search to find these Cabbage Patch lookalikes you can use terms like Cabbage Patch craft doll, clone, faux, knock off. I encourage you to search multiple terms (even porcelain doll + yarn hair). I did a moderate search and nothing came up for me, but you may have better luck then I am.

Some of the kits had a mold number on the head, some had it on the feet, some had no markings which is why it is so hard to find comparables.

If you purchased to resell these, I am not sure how to value them because I can't find any comparables. This DOES NOT mean they are rare, unfortunately, just that I didn't have enough time to do a deep dive into the research to find an exact match.

There is a porcelain doll group I like on Facebook called porcelain doll collector's + accessories buy and sell. Someone there may know the exact maker and once you know that, it will help if you are trying to value it. You have to answer some questions to join, but they are very nice once you are in the group.

I can tell you generally ALL dolls have very little value in the resale world since there is a huge glut of dolls at the moment. The one thing you may have in your favor, though is that these are not a "sweet face" look alike. Sometimes that can move a doll resale value from $5 to $25.

Here is what the porcelain dolls looked like that Applesauce use to make and sell - www.amazon.com/.../B00XFRFUL4 (Affiliate Link).

Your dolls are not the same face at all. I do believe that when the big rush to buy these dolls a few craft stores sold kits for parents to make the dolls for their children. I do remember seeing some of these kits in one of the craft stores I use to visit in the US.

If the doll has no other marking on it then this is a kit doll and it is basically just a collector's items to love and adore and not worth much at all.

These are not Cabbage Patch dolls as the faces are different. These are knockoffs.
