Value of Dolls?

I am just wondering what these dolls are worth. I got them from my grandmother at one point and have no use for them around here. They are the Collectors Choice by Dandee.

Unfortunately the Dandee dolls were on the low end of the spectrum when new and did not hold their market value in today's resale market.

If she is a small doll (like 15 inches and under) she may sell for $1-$15. If she is taller, $10-25.

There are a glut of dolls out there. Now is the time to sell before Christmas. Be sure to wrap her very carefully if you are shipping because she is so fragile that she can easily be damaged in shipping. Use tons of bubble wrap and double box.

This will impact the shipping so be sure to put the correct box weight and dimensions so you don't lose money.

Post back how your sale goes!

This type porcelain doll was mass produced from 1980's to 2000.
Porcelain dolls were made by 100's of companies and artists during their heyday when people bought them to put away with the idea they would gain in value, sadly, that did not happen.
Dolls have hit the market with much dismay to people who bought them as they have no value in today's market. The market it flooded with them and they are very slow sellers and most will never sell.

There are over 5,000 Dandee Collector's Choice dolls presently listed on eBay for sale. There are many variations but the market research states that not even 10% of the dolls listed for sale will ever sell.
Here is a link to sold dolls on eBay so you can see for yourself what people are actually paying for similar dolls.

Hopefully, you have someone who might appreciate these dolls as they do represent a part of our past.

It is a shame that dolls like this have flooded the market in recent years. There are so many of them now for sale that people are trying to give them away.

I have told a few people who had a lot of these dolls to take them to a swap meet and sell them there. They actually did quite well and they were able to sell the dolls for around $10 to $20 each.

Online you will be lucky if you can get $1-10 for the doll. They are mass-produced and don't bring in a major resale value these days.

They are beautiful dolls, they are not gaining what they are worth these days. These dolls are on the market for various prices online , but are not selling for more than $25. You may get to sell your dolls, now it's the Holidays. But keep in mind selling price may be lower. You could do bid pricing and stage them well to stand out from the others. -

Wow! this is a beautiful doll! I love them both. I have seen them listed on E-bay for $20.00.

In order to make them unique, you might consider putting the doll's history, and the story of how you received this doll. I think these dolls are in excellent shape.

If you sell them both together, what a wonderful Christmas present that would make!

Have a blessed day!

These are mass-produced dolls worth $25 at most. Sorry!
