Hi,

These are vintage Christmas theme decorative dolls from the 1980's that were made in either Taiwan, Hong Kong or China. They were sold in the five and dime stores during the holidays. On today's market, and most especially prior to the Christmas, this pair could sell online for $5 - $15 for the two.
