The doll market has been in a downward trend for several years and there is no expectation that the low value of almost all brands will change for years to come.
People are downsizing and 'dumping' all the 'collectibles' they have been lugging around for many years.
Dolls were misrepresented as collectibles that would increase in value over the years but then the companies mass-produced almost all of their dolls, so the value dropped and has remained there.


To find what similar dolls have sold for (not what price they are listed for sale) you can go to eBay sold dolls and try to find a similar doll. You will need the brand name and name of the doll if available but otherwise, you just have to search by 'sight' which is very time-consuming.
In actuality, most dolls will sell for under $25 and may take months/years to sell.
You can check out previous answers and see if any of your dolls are mentioned. Brand names on dolls is usually located on the back of the head/neck under the hair.

Thanks, I don't think they are worth a lot, but thought someone could enjoy them. I went through eBay, you're right, its very time consuming.

I usually donate dolls to my church for their 'yard sales' and at least someone gets to enjoy them. I'm always hoping they add a smile and a ray of sunshine to someone's life.
