I found a set of 3 Franklin Heirloom Peter Pan dolls that they were selling as a set for $19. This was a bid on the dolls and it has ended. I am not sure if they were actually sold or the bid was just canceled. it says that 11 people put a bid on this doll. www.ebth.com/.../9763470-franklin-heirloom-bisque...

That is the link. Currently, dolls are not selling for much at all. This was a lot of 3 and it was only going for $19. The estimated value of your doll would be $5-10.

The 1984 version of the doll is currently selling for $20. Your doll is newer than this so it will be worth $15 to $20.

Your exact gal is being advertised on a variety of sites with the highest asking price being 22.50. I have not seen her sell in awhile. Sold prices = market value.

The doll market is crazy sometimes.
The same dolls will sometimes be listed all over for $30 or less and then one sells for a lot more.
Most of the Franklin Heirloom Disney Alice in Wonderland dolls that are listed in so many places is not the same doll but the earlier 1981-1984 (not sure which year is correct) model and they seem to be selling but the sold prices vary greatly and run from $5-$45.
I have not seen very many of the 1991 dolls listed for sale. Your doll has blonde hair and a light blue dress and is approximately 12-13" tall.

A doll like yours sold on eBay on Nov. 1st for $127.50 plus shipping and that is an excellent value - not sure another will come anywhere near that price.

www.ebay.com/.../312817648228?hash=item48d5628264...

If yo wish to sell your doll, I would suggest listing her on local venues like Facebook Marketplace, OfferUp, or LetGo and maybe show her as pick up only s people really like to know they can actually see something before paying the money.
Being unwrapped in the box has very little advantage as people usually will only buy what they can see, so I would sat to unwrap your doll and take several very good pictures - pictures in the box and out so they can see how pretty she is. Look at the above listing to see what type of pictures to take or check ot this one on WorthPoint for details about your doll.

You can start her at a higher price and lower it is no one shows any interest.
Take good pictures and list now and she might sell before Christmas.

The Franklin Mint Dolls are from a company that mass-produces dolls and there is normally 500 to 1000 of one doll in a lot that the companmy makes and sells worldwide. The doll market has taken a big decline in recent years and people are trying hard to sell off their dolls in order to downsize and get rid of them. A lot of people currently try to list these dolls online to sell them.

There are some dolls that have been sitting there for over 6 months and nobody seems interested in buying the dolls. The few dolls that actually do sell are s low and people are not making more than 5-15 dollars on the sales of these dolls. That is the price that determines the current value of dolls on the market today. Your doll is worth 5-15 dollars.

Normally people upload the photo of the doll to make it easier to identify. Anyhow, most of these dolls are not worth much these days and people are selling them for as low as $5.

The most people have sold these dolls for in recent years is $15 to $20.

I am seeing different ones on Ebay going for $50 to $150
www.ebay.com/.../i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=m570.l1313...

The issue is, are people actually buying? The reality of ebay today is it is an oversaturated market, and the only thing that seems to move anymore is electronics.

But at least people are asking that much for them, which is a lot better than can be said for many other such dolls on the market.

Most of these dolls are listed for $15 to $50 on a lot of websites. The value of dolls has declined so much in the past few years and it is hard to sell them online. Most people now try to sell them locally to avoid the cost of shipping and a lot of time they receive a higher value for the doll.

She is beautiful.
Maryse Nicole is the artist/designer of quite a few Franklin Mint dolls and she also designed dolls for several other doll companies.

There are quite a few listings for her dolls but I did not see one like yours.
This does not mean it is rare because almost all doll companies made several thousand of each doll they produced which of course, just means that very few will be valuable.
Dolls are presently at an all time low in value and demand and I, personally, do not believe this trend will change for the next 10-20 years. The market is just not there for dolls anymore.

You can blame it on whatever you like: the companies overproducing/calling their dolls 'collectible' and fooling the public into thinking all dolls would increase in value, seniors/adults dumping these dolls because they no longer want them and nobody in their family wants them, true doll collectors do not want these overproduced dolls, girls very rarely place a doll on any wanted list (electronics are the in thing, and of course the Internet.

Since your doll is missing some of her outfit it may lower the value, especially the face mask as this is an essential part of her costume.

You can check out similar dolls listed for sale so you will have a good idea as to what type of pictures you need as well as a good description.
Asking prices are not current value prices - only prices sellers would like to receive for their items. Only sold prices can give the price someone is willing to pay for the item.

Here are listings on eBay (for this brand & artist/designer). You can place a watch on any doll to see if she sells. Sellers list dolls for long periods of time - hoping they will eventually sell.

www.ebay.com/.../i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=m570.l1313...

www.ebay.com/.../bn_7024788866

Here are the dolls that have sold on eBay over the past few months. As you can see, this artist is still popular but only a few are over $30.

www.ebay.com/.../i.html?_from=R40&_nkw=Franklin+Heirloom...

www.ebay.com/.../i.html?_nkw=maryse+nicole&rt=nc&_dcat...

If you decide to sell you might want to list her on some local venues like Craigslist, OfferUp, LetGo, Facebook Marketplace or any of the other popular sites.
This way you can list her several times and start your price higher - lower it if you have no interest.
List her as pick up only with no shipping or list with shipping but be sure you check shipping cost closely before listing.

This sounds like your first edition might be worth more to a true collector so maybe you might think about keeping it for a while longer as it may become even more valuable in the future.

The same information will fit these dolls as was given for your Coca Colo dolls as most of these will fall under the same values (or less value).

  • There are presently 1,400 different Franklin mint dolls listed on eBay - all sizes and many different models.
  • www.ebay.com/.../i.html?_from=R40&_sacat=0&LH_ItemCondition...
  • You can research your dolls by name and over a few months of research you will have a better idea as to the true value of your dolls.
  • You can check sold listings on the eBay site if you check for link on the left side of your screen.

These are beautiful dolls but there are so many nice dolls available that a buyer has a large variety to choose from and prices from $15-$150 so you can easily see why your doll is not very valuable - money wise.

  • eBay, Etsy and Ruby Lane are the biggest doll selling sites and there are always many hundred to several thousand different brand dolls to choose from.
  • Occasionally, someone may be looking for a particular doll and will pay a little more money but still, this is a long shot.
  • Most of this brand doll sells for less than $25 dollars and packing (safely) and shipping is always a big job.
  • If you want to sell your doll, I would recommend listing it on your local Craigslist as you can start the price at a higher price (even $100) and lower it if no one shows an interest.
  • This means an interested person can see the doll before they buy (this means a lot to most people) and there would be no need to pack and ship.
  • Using Craigslist is easy (they have a short tutorial on their site) and mostly free, but you will need several photos but you can take these on your cellphone so you do not even need a camera.
  • Here are a couple of listings (from 2016 & 2017) of what I believe is your doll but neither one sold (they were listed for several months).
  • www.ebay.com/.../142321685499?rmvSB=true&nma=true...
  • www.ebay.com/.../222233887723?item=222233887723&ViewItem...
  • Here is a link showing other Franklin Heirloom dolls that sold on eBay over the past several months so you can see the actual prices people are paying for this type doll.

These are mass-produced dolls that decrease in value, and are worth $25 at best.
