Now Collectible Childhood Dolls

Some modern childhood dolls that are now collectible

Modern dolls..... currently very collectible.......are more frequently represented in our family photos. Following are pictures of my daughter with her treasured Raggedy Andy, her gorgeous Italian Furga and other dolls from Santa.

Andy went through the washer a few times......but he, his companion Raggedy Ann and the Furga still reside with their now adult "mother."

The doll below on the left is an Effanbee "Gumdrop." "Santa" fell in love with her while gathering toys for an early 1960's Christmas. Although pictured here with her new owner on Christmas morning......

"Gumdrop" periodically disappeared and was off limits for everyday play.......until she was re-gifted to my daughter 30 plus years later. Because of my tendency to hoard her, she is in near mint condition.

Approximately 20 years later, my granddaughters first doll was a new generation, Raggedy Ann.

Raggedy Ann and Andy have been loved by those who came before us and will be adored by those who follow.

Christmas snapshots provide a look into our own childhood to reveal the gift of a favorite doll. Go dig in your closets and basements! You might be surprised and what you have forgotten.

eBay is an excellent website for "value" information about dolls, or most anything else for that matter--however, to see what something has sold for, registration is required, so if you are looking for past sales of any particular doll, please register.
