I have absolutely zero experience with collectable dolls, so need to know if I should attempt to clean this one or just list as is and let the new mommy take care of it? Also, sell with box even if it ups the ship cost?
She has some dirty/dusty/grime marks and the box is kinda hacked and dusty. The clothes she's wearing are also dusty but the romper in the baggie is pristine.
I'm also not sure what year she is. Laying flat on her back & tummy & measuring with a yard stick I come up with 15"
Her rubber body is in remarkable shape and still very flexible and she squeaks (kinda) when her tummy is squeezed. What condition should I list her as? good/very good/acceptable?
Eyes close when she's placed horizontally and work well. She does have a couple of minor paint loss areas on back of head, presumably from moving about in the box as she doesn't appear to have been played with much if at all.
Any advice appreciated.
Bought this cute little doll today, and am surprised there is not a mark of any kind on her to identify with. Her eyes are a light brown now, were probably darker at one time. Look familiar to anyone?
can someone help me i have been looking for franklin doll catalogues
i need all 1990 ,91.92.,93,94.98.99 if any doll collectors have a collection of them i wish to buy them
I purchased several of these kits in 2002 from FunStuf in Arizona...... they are semi hard vinyl, marked Berjusa on the back of the neck....open and close eyes,molded hair and factory paint..... cloth body....... makes a 27 inch doll
They are Mikey from the Diana Collection...... sculpt by Berjusa.......
I have googled them and cannot find any information on their current value.....
I originally paid $27.00 per kit in 2002
I have someone interested in buying all 18 kits and that makes me wonder what the current value might be before accepting their offer..... any help would be appreciated.... I just don't want to be taken advantage of
Thanks in advance..... picture is of assembled doll in engineer outfit
