Value of Seymour Mann Baby Dolls

I have 12 Seymour Mann baby dolls that my mum left to me. I believe she bought them in 2000. I am moving to a bungalow as I am disabled and wheelchair bound. I have the reference numbers. Does anyone how how I can find out their value? Can I contact the manufacturer directly? I have been searching, but I have cataracts on my eyes and I can't see very well.

The reference numbers are:
168112 168113 168111 157888 163116 163092 163100 157891 157887 163145 163164 166536

I would be very grateful for any advice.

These are mass-produced dolls, with a maximum value of $25.

Sorry to hear you are having trouble valuing them.

The best way is to search eBay sold section. 12 dolls would take 2--3 hours.

People usually don't sell by number, they usually sell by name and/or a description of the doll. You will need to match the exact doll to yours to find a true value. This can be challenging because you may need to make several trips back to eBay if there are none sold that day.

SOLD is the only way to get a TRUE VALUE...as that is what someone actually paid. Asking price is useless as it only tells you what a seller wants to get for an item.

Sadly most have not held their value, but there are always ringers in there that fetch a decent amount. The ringers are few and far between though...like this one that fetched over $300:

ADORA LIMITED EDITION COLLECTION SACHIKO 20" COA#0025

To help you see your computer better...have you tried these two methods:

Use your mouse roller ball (the rolly thing on the top) and AT THE SAME TIME hold down the control key and roll the rolly thing to make your screen bigger...mine rolls UP to make it bigger and DOWN makes it smaller--I use this all day long!)

Another way to make your screen bigger--the type is to go to your computer setting and set things to an extra large font and extra large icon size. Every computer is different so if you google making your computer name.....like HP or DELL print larger...you will get directions.

I could be wrong, but I think the company that made these dolls is long gone following Mr. Mann's death, and then the death of the family member who took it over:

So calling them is not an option. You could call an antique store and see if they would buy them from you or a consignment store and see if you can consign them there. These are probably your best options since you have vision issues and probably don't want the hassle of people coming to your house (selling from Facebook or the newspaper classified) or wrapping and shipping....like if you sell on eBay.

In probably 98 cases of 100, you won't get much for them (no matter how you sell them because there is such a glut of dolls on the market right now.

Good luck. Sorry not to have better news on values. I hope you can at least feel comfortable with your research so you know you are getting a fair price for the items.

PS, my sympathy on the loss of your mom. Prayers!!
