This is a mass-produced doll and worth around $25

From the packaging and the box, the doll is stored in this is a doll that is mass produced. The doll more than likely sold for $50 to $80 depending on where it was purchased.

Unfortunately, mass-produced dolls like this don't have a high resale value and most people end up selling them for $10 or just giving them away. It is very hard to actually sell one.

Quite the dapper little guy!

They were made by a company called Tuss Inc. out of MO. Here is a link about the company: www.buzzfile.com/.../Tuss,-Inc-314-786-5782

They were sold at many retail outlets like larger Hallmark stores, and stores that specialized in home decor, the occasional toy and department store.

He had a sailor girl "sister" named Kenzie. She was sweet also! You sometimes see them being sold together.

Sadly, he and his sister did not hold their value in today's market--there are several unsold on ebay in the under $11 range like this guy:

and both together unsold in the $49 range:

Some of the Collectible Memories brand dolls are still valued (meaning selling on eBay) for around what they cost in the 1990s-early 2000 (in the $20-30 range).

If he were mine, and I had space, I would put him on a shelf and enjoy him. Keep him in nice shape and maybe in another 10-15 years he may increase in value--of course that is never a guarantee.

Why I think there is a possibility is today people are dumping dolls like crazy to get back closets and shelf space and there is going to be a contingent of those folks in 15 years who are going to feel nostalgic for their past and may go looking for him. Then supply will be low, demand may be higher and his value may increase!

Hope this is helpful!

Do a search on "Google" put in all the info. you have. Also check on eBay to see if any dolls like yours are offered for sale, and check Craigslist.

Collectible Memories dolls are mass produced and sold to stores like K-Mart and generally sell/sold in the $39.95 field and, sadly, most of these dolls have very low value and are not really a "collectible" item as they are very plentiful in all sizes, models and mostly new condition.

Boy dolls are not as plentiful as girls so occasionally they might sell a little faster but may not sell for very much money.

  • There are about 650 Collectible Memories porcelain dolls presently listed for sale on eBay (the world's largest doll selling site) and it is estimated that only 3-10 of these dolls will sell each day.
  • There are usually over 1,000,000 dolls listed for sale over any given time period which just means that most of the dolls will never sell - at any price.
  • Take a look at Collectible Memories dolls listed on eBay and you will see all sorts and the prices are up and down - just remember, any listing that states "free shipping" will be a minus $8-$10 off the selling price as the seller has to pay for shipping out of that money.

  • Now if you look at the dolls that actually sold over the past several months (and what they sold for - shown in green) you will see that most were "given away" or should have been considering how much trouble the seller went to sell for $3-$5.

Sweet boy!!

There is one of him unsold on eBay at the $10 range and he and his sister Kenzie are unsold at $49.99. A link to that one is www.ebay.com/.../323297195474?hash=item4b4603b5d2...

These were very popular when I used to work in retail, but sadly did not hold their value.

If he were mine, I would put him back on a shelf and keep him nice and maybe in 10-15 years after everyone is done purging their doll collections he will have a nostalgic craze and people will want to buy him again!
