I have quite the doll collection from Yolanda's picture

Hello my name is*****...

Hello my name is***** have quite the doll collection from Yolanda's picture perfect babies collection. The one I'm looking to see what its worth is Heather certificate # 3842W. I would like to to give it to my niece who just 30. Her mother would rub Heather on her belly cause she hoped for a girl..

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

I have all the original boxes and certificates for all my dolls

Hi,

Thank you for your patience.

Unfortunately, the antique and collectible doll market is currently slumped. Dolls do not sell for what they used to sell for a few decades ago and the market was further impacted by the Recession.

On today’s market, your Heather doll from the Yolanda Picture Perfect Babies Collection could sell for $100 - $125; which is higher than most of the Yolanda series' dolls.
