What Are My Collectible Dolls Worth?
The condition of your collectible dolls will most certainly determine their values. Dolls that are stained or dirty, show significant wear or collectible dolls not presented in their original costume or accessories will bring only a fraction of the price indicated by pricing guides. Collectible dolls presented in an original unopened box will bring very attractive prices. Of course, other factors such as age, rarity, and general demand for the doll will greatly affect the worth of your dolls as well.

Why are Porcelain Dolls so Much More Expensive?
Much of the value of vintage porcelain dolls is based on the popularity of the artist. This also brings into play other factors such as the quantity produced and how many limited edition numbers were assigned. Original artists collectible dolls are far more valuable than mass produced dolls. 

What are Some of the Collectible Doll Reference Guides to Look for?
There is variety of resources available to help determine the value of your dolls. Many magazines, books and guides provide information about trademarks, manufacturers and mold lot numbers. Antique Doll Collector magazine offers specialized lists of dealers of antique collectable dolls. But, be aware, the pricing guidance is generally based on dolls in excellent or mint condition. 

What is the Fascination with Barbie Dolls?
Probably, marketing played a big role -- introduced in 1956, collectible Barbie dolls have been the fascination of little girls and their moms alike from day one. Collectable Barbies are now available in over 130 countries around the world.  Much more is available at our Barbie pages...
