Toy Appraisals

Katrina’s Toy Blog will help you appraise  your toys!

We currently offer 2 types of appraisals: Basic and Deluxe.

Basic Appraisals:

Basic appraisals cost $7.50. A basic appraisal will briefly identify your item and consist of my professional opinion of current market value. No additional questions about the item are included.

Deluxe appraisal will cost $15.00. A deluxe appraisal will be much more detailed than the basic appraisal and that will include much more information. It also will give its Fair Market, with high and low current comparative items that have sold in recent weeks. Up to 10 questions about the item are included.

Please submit the following information to katrinastoyblog@live.com:

  • Describe the condition, (mint, excellent, very good, good, poor)
  • Flaws present, (rips, tears, holes, stains, rubs, marks, undone seams etc)
  • Origin, date (if known)
  • Maker (if known)
  • Attach pictures: front, back, tush tag

If we have more questions we will email you.

Please send above information to katrinastoyblog@live.com

Please allow up to 7 days for us to complete your appraisal.

Completed appraisals delivered via email.

Please click the Basic or Deluxe button below to pay your appraisal fee

Please note that not all items can be identified. Some are that are very hard to find information about are unmarked, tourist and souvenir dolls, cheaper made toys and dolls such as dolls sold in supermarkets, or local artist dolls. Sometimes I can only give the approximate age of the item, and maybe where it came from. I will not charge for an appraisal that I cannot find enough information about. I can give general information and the value of the item if you wish, but I would contact you and let you decide if you want to pay for an appraisal with limited information or not.

    Thank you so much for the fast response on my request for an appraisal. I am so pleased to learn of the value of Jeremy Glen “Little People” doll by Xavier Roberts.

    I just wanted to leave some feedback on the appraisal I just received. I had an Xavier’s Little People doll and there is SO much info out there that it is just too confusing!! 🙂 Katrina answered all of my questions (and I had several) and provided more information on top of that. She also gave me some examples of other dolls values that were similar. If you want a toy appraised, this is a great place to get that done.

    Katrina just did appraisals for my Xavier Roberts Little People/Cabbage Patch dolls that were so specific about the different factors that added to or subtracted from their value. I couldn’t believe how much detail she was able to provide! It turns out my dolls are more valuable than I had realized and now I have the info I need to sell them for what they are worth. This is definitely the place to find out everything you need to know about special toys.

    I have a Cabbage Patch doll, purchased at Babyland General in 1999. She is part of a special collection who all had the middle name “Bea”. I thought she was a preemie, but she’s not a newborn, She is of course hand signed and her tag has this number: BCP99/27 handwritten on it. It his what you would consider a “rare collectible”?

      I’m not sure off the top of my head. The best way to find out is to purchase a basic appraisal.

      Yes! This doll is definitely a collectible!

    Is there a location I can visit to get an old teddy bear appraised or are you only available online?
