Value of Ashton Drake Dolls

I have seen questions asked about the current value of 20 year old Ashton Drake dolls. I have 3 and they were all signed by the artist (Yolanda Bello). I even have photos of she and I with the dolls. How does this affect the value?

Yolanda Bello Dolls sold through Ashton Drake were part of her Jason collection and also part of the Picture Perfect Babies Collection.

  • Because of the internet these dolls have significantly fallen in value.
  • Auctions normally bring a price between $10 to $20.
  • I have been searching for a price of the dolls if they were signed by the artist. Unfortunately, nobody is selling one of these dolls that the artist has signed.
  • You might want to contact an auction house or a doll collector to find out if the dolls are worth more because the artist signed them for you.
  • This would be the best way to determine the value of your dolls.

  • Many dolls sold on eBay sit there for months on end and nobody buys the dolls. Therefore, the person cancels the sale of their dolls on eBay.

When searching for values on your dolls you may want to search with the designer name Yolanda Bello as this will produce more of the type doll you are looking for. Most of the dolls shown will be Ashton Drake but it will narrow your search considerably.

  • Most of these dolls are mass produced (even this designer) so they are plentiful and value is very low.
  • Selling prices will run between $8 and $30 but may take a very long time to sell.
  • Sellers keep dolls listed for months and months and may never sell even at low prices.
  • Shipping is expensive (which adds to the cost of the doll) and a real pain as they can get broken and that is your loss - not the buyer. USPS will not always pay the insurance you purchased as they will say it was not packed well enough/correctly/safely (and they are usually correct).

  • I do not believe a signed "doll" will make very much difference as I could find no place that anyone was interested in her "signature" but maybe a few dollars more.
  • Very few doll designers ever become famous enough to make their autograph worth very much money.
  • Here are current listings on eBay, Etsy (the two largest doll sellers), Amazon, and Replacements. Hopefully you will be able to locate your dolls on one of these sites.

  • Here is a link showing what dolls recently sold for on eBay.

I believe your photograph will only be of interest to you but sometimes these things fool you and someone could be interested.

You probably know quite a bit about the designer but here is a link with a little background.

They are worth about 120.00 signed. Study E-Bay for 2 months and watch what your dolls sell for. Only actual sales, not just listed prices.
