Awww! How cute!!

I found your set being listed as an active auction on eBay as a best offer starting at 9.99 plus shipping:

www.ebay.com/.../132473115290

You may want to watch it and see if it sells and that will be today's current market value.

You will see the shipping is really high. Be sure if you sell yours to double box and pack carefully then weigh and measure the box before listing. These dolls are very fragile and a single box you risk them getting to the buyer in a million pieces!

This brother and sister set look like they are all dressed up in their Easter outfits.
Such a shame to see such adorable dolls valued so low.
I believe the companies mass produced so many dolls that we will not see an increase in value even in the next 10 - 20 years.

Not only are so many dolls available there is just not a good market for them. In the past every young girl wanted dolls - lots of dolls - but now they are into electronics/cell phones/music and very, very few are wanting a doll even at 3-4 years old.
Dolls are a thing of the past...

You can check eBay sold listings for same/similar dolls and see the dismal expectation of what the current value may be.
You may notice some selling for under $30 with free shipping and since shipping will be $9-$30 (depending on the size/location) (also eBay & PayPal fees) there is not much profit there (some even sell at a loss to sellers).
I also noticed one cute doll sold for $.99 plus small shipping - what a waste of time for that seller.
Also, shipping is a hazard for sellers because so many are damaged and the seller has to refund the buyer all the money they payed so the seller could be out everything - doll, money paid by buyer, shipping cost the seller had to pay and cannot get back, eBay fees - can be a costly lesson.

USPS insurance is costly and even Priority Mail insurance is debatable as the post office can deny a claim if they say doll was not packaged properly.
Do not believe anything a seller states in their listings about no refunds, not responsible for damage and all that junk because eBay says they are responsible and will refund the buyer and take the money from your PayPal account or even send to collection if no money in PayPal or bank.

Some of the dolls that are listed as sold could have been listed for months - even years - but we have no way to know the time listed.

Maybe you could place several dolls together and list them on local venues as 'pick up only' so there is no shipping involved.
Here is a listing to review from several years ago but gives you an idea of how to list a group.

There are a lot of these dolls out there on the market. At Christmas time these dolls were all over the place, for sale. Being said the price is lower, no more than $20 perfect condition. Try auction/bid for better price!
