Value of Goldenvale Dolls?

Can anybody tell me about these sleeping beauties? All I know is they are Goldenvale 1/2000. I bought from somebody for $20.00. They are precious I think and they have more. Is it worth the investment?

An investment? No as there are very few dolls of any brand selling for more than $25-$35 - even cute beauties like these. Also, the doll market is flooded with dolls of all brands, styles, ethnic groups, sizes and dolls are one of the slowest selling items online. Many sellers leave dolls listed for years (at fair prices) and most will never sell. The 1/2000 is just a number this company puts on all of their dolls.
There is no indication that any of this will change in the coming years; in fact, it is estimated that values will drop even more as dolls are just not on very many people's wanted lists.

Of course, there are always exceptions and your babies may be an exception and sell quickly. It is too late to post for Christmas but Native American, Indian dolls are more in favor than a lot of other style dolls.

Value of any item can only be stated when there is a sold identical item as that price shows what someone was willing to pay while asking prices are just prices that a seller would like to receive for their items and has very little to do with 'value'.
I found one doll like yours that sold on eBay but there is a big difference. The doll sold for $9.99 plus shipping but this doll has moccasins and a 'fur' bed as your dolls are missing both of these items which would lower the value but you do have two dolls so it might raise the value a little.

So - if you bought them for yourself then you did okay but I would never recommend buying dolls of any kind for an investment (antique dolls and very rare dolls are the exceptions).

Currently, the market is flooded with dolls at the moment and people are not actually getting a very high price for selling them. Normally the Indian dolls do seem to fetch a bit higher price than other dolls are at the moment. If you only paid $20 for the set you paid fair market value for these dolls.

Normally the set of dolls like this goes for around $20-35 for the set. You won't get much more than what you have paid for the dolls if you are planning on selling them again.

I believe we sold her under the name Sleeping or Sleepy Indian Baby--or maybe that was what we called her. She was a low to mid range doll when new. In today's market, she has been sitting unsold on eBay and Etsy in the 8-10 dollar range (each). Unfortunately, if you went to sell them today you may or may not break even.

Hold on to them and enjoy them!! Maybe in 10-15 years, their value will return!
