These are pretty!

Right now there are no exact matches to these dolls on eBay at the moment and looking at SOLD dolls (to me) is the ONLY way to get an exact value of your dolls.

Unfortunately, generally, these dolls have not held their value, and some sell as low as .99 cents. This is why it is so important to check back to eBay frequently and look for an exact match in the SOLD section...then you will know today's current market value for your EXACT dolls.

It sometimes is challenging to find an exact match, but sometimes it is a matter of asking the search the right way in eBay or Etsy or even in Google.

I know when lot of folks list dolls on eBay they just list the general topic...like Seymour Mann and the baby dolls name or just the color of the hair or the color of the dress. They often don't use the numbers or series info.

It may take a lot of nose-work, but if you check back to eBay frequently, you can usually find an exact match.

Remember value is not the same as profit. If it is valued at $10, then your profit may be half that after fees and such. It may pay to list them on a free site like Facebook or Craig's List once you find the exact selling values...at least then there are no fees.

Seymour Mann was a real guy, who passed in 2004 www.giftsanddec.com/.../

He and the other more modern doll makers created quite the stir in the 70s-90s with series of dolls designed by their very creation to be "collectibles"...and we bought in hook line and sinker....I was one of the folks selling these back in the day...and they flew off the shelves with folks hoping to (today) have a nice little nest egg. Fast forward today and sadly, we just have a lot of pretty dolls with no value because a true collectible is something rare where there are 1 or 2 left in the world...not 1 or 2 thousand of a series. Who knew!

Since so many people are literally dumping dolls these days to get back shelf and closet space, it may pay to hold on to them because eventually it may come around that people miss having these pretty dolls and want to recreate a nice memory. You never know. Stranger things have happened!

Seymour Mann dolls are mass-produced and lose their value. They are worth from $10 to $25.
