This is a prototype doll that was developed by a company that ceased operating in 2019, so it remains a one-of. It is the main character from the childrens' television show "True and the Rainbow Kingdom"
It measures 11x5x5 inches, is made of a soft plastic with mobile limbs and head. The shoes are removable and made of a rubber material. The buttons on the chest activate a series of recorded phrases.
Would anyone have an idea if there's a market for this? It appears that the collectors' market is mainly for antiques.
Here is a link to what eBay is asking for this cute figure that is new and in perfect condition - at $75 + $21.99 for shipping outside of the US -www.ebay.com/
Hi Ana, thanks. I had come across the Ebay dolls and there are a fair number of plush dolls available. The one that I posted is different- it's a one-off using factory-grade plastics, so I was wondering if there's a market for unique and production quality items.
In the collector field there is always a market for dolls like this that are one of a kind or prototypes that never went into production. Now to find this market is a bit harder and eBay or Etsy will not help at all. What needs to be done is a lot of research for one of a kind collectables. I can give you a few websites to check out. I did find that they hold auctions for one of a kind item at a website I found out of Florida.
Thank you, poehere, that was exactly what I was looking for. I had been using completely the wrong search terms before, and hadn't realised that "one of a kind" would be a better term.
