Here’s How to Check If Your American Girl Doll Is Worth Thousands

Hanging on to certain toys and keeping them in mint condition could potentially pay off, especially if you have certain American Girl dolls.

“Dolls are usually a loser’s game,” collectibles expert Josh Levine said. “But I was pleasantly surprised. There is a decent market for American Girl dolls every day of the week.”

In the last several months certain American Girl dolls have sold online for prices ranging from $1,150 to $5,400. There are even dolls priced at over $10,000 currently on eBay.

The dolls that are fetching the most money are made by the Pleasant Company, this was before the company was sold to Mattel in 1998. Also it helps if the doll is part of a limited release or has a signature.
