Thank You, just not sure what to start them out as? Looking for alittle more specific. Like if I have a $100 doll I don't want to start it out at $19.99

These dolls were advertised as collectibles, and have greatly decreased in value. If they are never taken out of the box, the large ones can get up to $35 and the smaller ones up to $25.

I have been selling dolls on and off for years. Best guidance is to try to sell them locally vs. on eBay unless you are an experienced seller.

They are extremely fragile and often do not survive shipping if they aren't double boxed with lots of padding--which is why I have stopped online sales. Too risky.

I suggest trying a local market--like your local NextDoor of Facebook Sale Want Or Trade (SWOT) groups and start high--$50 each and task best offer, which sadly could be as low as $5-10 each. Setting the value high allows you to negotiate and then drop if people ask. If you start low, you have nowhere to go but down.

You would be amazingly fortnuate to realize the full $50, but it can happen if you find the right person who wants the doll.

Sadly and unfortunately there is a huge glut of dolls on the market now and that drives values down for 99.9% of the dolls on the market.

If you hold on to them for another 10-15 years, they may increase in value again. That will be because so many people are selling them now, in the future they may miss those dolls and then the demand to get them back may increase which will drive prices back up.

It is a cyclical market for sure--i have seen it go from the hundreds to the singles from the early 1980s when these would sell at flea markets for in the hundreds until now when they fetch very little. It is sad.

Post back how your sales go.

When you do the posts, be sure to mention the size (height) and the artist listed and the brand of course.

Dolls are still running low in selling price. There are so many on the market, for sale, as consumers are selling to feel a more important need. This one not as collectable may run up to $20 each on todays market of many, and low end $5 to $10.
