When you have daughter, you probably gave her a stuffed animal or a doll. She would take this around wherever she went but at a certain age, they don’t like to play with them anymore and have found other interests. Does this mean that you can’t give dolls anymore? Maybe not for playing but collectible toy dolls are extraordinary gifts because this may soon turn into a hobby.
The difference with a collectible toy doll is that you don’t play with it. This is displayed and kept in good condition at all times so one day you can probably sell it or swap it with something else. It is very similar to a stamp or coin collection because their market value goes up every time. But in some cases, this does not the happen because of the law of supply and demand.
So what is the secret to increase the value of the doll? It is simply that this is an item that is very hard to find. One reason is that only a few of that particular item was made and there are only a few of them left. Back in the 60’s to 80’s, nobody thought of keeping toys in their original packaging.
Once it is given, the box is thrown away and then the doll is placed with the rest on the shelf. If it gets broken or the child gets tired of it, this is given away to charity or dumped in the trash.
That is the life of the doll or any other toy. But lately, everyone is feeling nostalgic and there is a desire to bring back things from the past. Some are even willing to pay a huge some of money for it like there was a time that a 1959 Barbie doll was worth $10,000.
But because know better now about how to take care of their collectible toy dolls, experts say that no doll will ever fetch such a huge price anymore. If you are lucky, you can probably make about $2000 which isn’t that bad.
So which collectible toy doll is worth giving as an extraordinary gift? There are a lot of brands so it is really difficult to point them all out. Your decision should probably be based on the personality of the recipient because if they are able to relate to it, they will appreciate what you gave rather than just saying thank you and just putting it in the closet.
You are probably asking next where you can find the collectible doll. The most obvious place is the toy store but to save you time and money going through the various shelves, go out and head down to a specialty store. The people who usually run these places are collectors themselves so they help you select which one is right for your daughter.
Another place is the Internet. There are various websites to check out and you will often find that the items there are much cheaper than the ones offered in the specialty store. Once you place an order, this will delivered to your door after a few days. You can gift wrap and then give it to your daughter on her special day or any other occasion.
Collectible toy dolls are extraordinary gifts. Since Christmas is over, perhaps this will be something worth giving on her birthday.
