Hello,

High average sale value on these is $5 per piece. The llama doll is from South America, likely Peru. The velvet cricket may have more value if there is a tag or label on it. The pink and yellow bunny is from the late 1960's - early 1970s. Beanie Baby market is flat and likely will not recover to the sale prices during the height of its collecting mania. The white bear with green eyes is vintage, around 1960's, and may have a higher value if there is a tag. The small brown bear, if mohair and tagged also may have a higher value. The larger brown bear is fairly contemporary.

Hi there, sorry for the 1 pic & I've come to learn that the preference of items is 4-5 at once, which I assume is how you prefer it. So, allow me to add some more details to better assist you. We'll skip the 10" Boyds, Paddy McDoodle, bear (with green ribbon) & go with the other bears.
1. I used to think that the 14" bear, with movable/posable limbs, was my father's, b.1949, but upon more careful inspection, it feels like there's something hard, that clicks inside of it, like when you squeezed it, it said something...
2. The smaller 7" bear was my father's & others have told me possibly a Steif?
3. The Beaver is also very old & its fur is not very soft such as todays plush, its very stiff overall, especially the tail, but still squeezable, did Steiff make beavers?
4. The 10" white bear with green eyes is actually a cat & really old...

Hi,

Thank you for the images. My personal preference is one item at a time per question, it is much less confusing on this end to see one set of images for one item.

From the new set of images here, the larger bear does appear to be mid 20th century, mohair, and what you feel is the teddy bear's voice box. This can sell for up to $40 without tags. The small bear does not appear to be a Steiff, no. Yes, Steiff did make a beaver doll named Nagy, and yours is a match. Without tags, the Nagy sells for $20 - $40 on today's market, with tags, up to $75 - $95 at auction. The comparables (not exact matches) that I am finding for white mohair cat dolls with glass eyes are dated to 1905 - 1930's and selling for up to $350 each.

Great, just one more thing re: the green-eyed cat. I'm sending one more pic, as the flash makes it white but its more tan/brown, then we can move to the next ones ;-)

Hi,

The comparable 'white' cats that i found were about the same color range.

Boyd's bears are a bit flat on the market, the plush Paddy McDoodle would garner $5 - $15.
