These Cabbage Patch dolls from 1984 in an original box have a price guide value in the range of 175.00-250.00 However market prices for the dolls are lower currently with the greater availablity of the dolls on the World wide web. These dolls have a value in very good condition in the range of 55.00-75.00...and often are seen selling even lower at auction and online as well in histories of the last 5-7 years.


The Preemie dolls originally dated to c.1980. These dolls also have market values which are down in the range of 35.00-60.00 so those selling these high on Ebay are really fishing for buyers today.


I hope this is not too disappointing. The dolls are not that old and have gone down in collectiblity even in original boxes and is hard to see these selling so low...and much lower (under 30.00) across the US markets.



Best wishes, Dori
