I have found some Cabbage Patch swings for sale on Esty but they are not the same as the one you have here. I do believe this one is from around 1983 because that is when I purchased one for my daughter. The ones for sale on Esty are plastic and not the same they are asking $22 for the ones posted there. I can not find this swing listed online for sale. I do belive if it is still in the box you should be able to ask around $30 for this item. You may not get that much for it once it is sold.

As for the other dolls they are selling in the range from $13 to $65 each. Some of them are in not so good conditions and the clothes are missing on a few of them.

I did see 2 African/American dolls listed on eBay and the people were asking $93 for them without the box. This is a good starting point to check out.

I am not finding the horse combo for sale. I do see the horse for sale on eBay and they range from $13-33 each out of the box. Some of the horses that sold alone are listed for $66-80 each. Othe than this the average price for the dolls ranges from $13-35 but some people try and ask a lot more for the dolls which are not selling at all. It seems lots of dolls are not selling as well as if you listed them alone to sell. I would try this to see how much you can get. Just keep in mind that dolls in package will bring in a higher value than if the boxes are gone.

Dolls of any kind are not fast moving items and most are considered to be low value.

Some of the Cabbage Patch dolls are still popular but may still take a long time to sell - at any price - as there are just so many dolls available which makes it a buyer's market.

You will just have to research each doll individually and see how many are for sale and how many (if any) have sold.
eBay and Etsy are the best sites to search but these are listed all over so it will take time to research each doll.

Dolls usually sell for more money if listed separately and must have several pictures and a good description.

I only researched the swing because that is probably the only item that will not have lots of listings.
I did find one for sale so you can check it out and maybe place a watch on it to see if it sells.

Here is a link to a swing that has an excellent description that you can use. This site - Worth Point - does not sell items as it is just for appraisers and cost money to find out what an item sold for so all you will see is the pictures and description.

So you have an interesting collection.

The swing is consistently selling on eBay (selling, not asking) in the $100 range. They are expensive to ship, which drags the asking price down. Be extremely careful if you sell this online to pad it inside and double box it. If these get jostled too much, they can stop working.

The twins, while I can't find the exact set, consistently sell in the $25 to $125 range. I would list it as a 7 day, Sunday to Sunday action and start with the least you would want to get, and let the market dictate the final value. I say this because I can't find an exact match and twins are still popular so you may fetch a decent amount--but it is hard to give a starting point without an apples to apples match on all of the features.

The show pony has not sold in ages in any color/configuration/style of hair or pony--and I have seen it listed from 20 to 80.00. The no sales are probably because there are a huge glut of them out there. That drives down prices and reduces or eliminates sales (values).

The CPK in the pink knit dress is valued at less than $30 based on past sales. The dress on its own can fetch up to $15.

The CPK circus dolls (when they are white) are not selling at any price (as low as 10.00). There are way too many of them out there. I have not seen one where the doll is black so that may or may not sell.

I also suggest putting it as a 7 day, Sunday to Sunday auction, start with the least you would want to get for it and let the market dictate the value.

If you need help learning how to navigate eBay let me know. I have been selling since the late 1990s, and have sold my share of CPK and other dolls.

You have a good collection. Selling these will not bring in what you deserve in this current market. There are hundreds of Cabbage Patch dolls for sale. Because there are so many, you would have to stage yours to stand out from the others, maybe getting $20 to $40 each in todays market!
