Why Your “Moribund” Samantha, Molly and Kristen Dolls of the 80sAre a Silent Gold Mine

The American Girl dolls that were a hot sensation in the 1980s are here and with a bang, and they will cost you an arm and a leg. Unlike those days where their price was lower, doll shops were hardly there, and delivery would take longer, you can now order the dolls from eBay at the strike of a button. The Samantha, Molly, and Kristen dolls are now costly since they have a historical attachment, and you happen to be an integral part of that nostalgic history. That original doll that your mother tucked away somewhere when you became of age can now earn you more than ten thousand dollars since the demand is rising to unimaginably crazy levels. Who would have thought that a part of their childhood history would come back to “haunt” them in a very profitable way in their thirties or parents?

Girls born in the 1980s are familiar with the American Girl dolls, Samantha Parkington, Kirsten Larson, and Molly McIntire, all of which went under between 2009 and 2013. These famous dolls started showing up again in 2013, with Samantha making the first dramatic re-appearance. Unlike your generation of the 80s, your daughters or other girls of today are lucky to have various choices with the new editions. The dolls come in many types, and they are available in a store at the convenience of the buyer since there are 22 American Girls stores in different locations. Moreover, the dolls have a customizable feature, which allows the girl to get a look-alike 18-inch doll on demand. No, this is an exciting feature for any girl who has a fascination with history.

Although the dolls were top-rated in the 80s, they have been in archives for some time- but as the adage goes, ‘familiarity breeds contempt.” Besides, absence increases value. Your hidden American Girl dolls are now a goldmine in every sense of the world, but the only problem is that you do not know the importance of what you have. As opposed to those days when you or your parents would have thought the dolls did not have much value, anybody who knows the price they can fetch will laugh at you if they see you tucking them away. The good thing is that you kept the dolls safely since you could not imagine cutting off the attachment that you had with them. While you were doing it out of childish instincts, today, your action will pay dividends, literally- you will sell the doll for a screaming fortune. If the new editions are already expensive, what about the old version that you are having, complete with all the original “matte” features?
