For many years, children have enjoyed playing with toy dolls. And just the same, there are adults who enjoy collecting these dolls.
While every doll has something unique to offer, some are much more valuable than others. In fact, some of the most rare toy dolls can easily fetch tens of thousands of dollars (or more).
Here are a handful of the most valuable toy dolls ever made, along with an approximate value:
· Pink Diamond Barbie: $15,000
· Signed Bebe Mothereau Doll: $18,000
· Life-Sized Megumi Kato: $19,000
· Original Barbie: $27,500
· Barbie And The Diamond Castle Promotional Barbie: $95,000
· Stefano Canturi Barbie: $300,000
· Kämmer & Reinhardt Life-Like Doll: $400,000
· Madame Alexander Eloise: $5 million
Now do you see why so many people are enthusiastic doll collectors?
When searching for these dolls, there are a couple things to keep in mind. First off, condition is very important. For example, a mint condition Pink Diamond Barbie may be worth approximately $15,000, but the same doesn’t hold true for one that has been beaten up over the years.
Secondly, most of these dolls are extremely rare. Take the Madame Alexander Eloise, for example. There are only five of these dolls in the world, making it very unlikely that you’ll find an original.
While you may never get your hands on one of these toy dolls, that shouldn’t stop you from building your collection. There are many others out there waiting for a new home!
