Antiques: How to Collect Antique Dolls : Antique Dolls: What to Look For


Dolls. Some people love them. Some people
hate them. But here they are. There’s a lot of dolls out there. There’s been dolls forever.
And I’m going to take a look at the dolls today that might be available to us if you
want to either start doll collecting or start your own collection or start making a little
money on the side. Maybe like that famous eBay stuff. So we’re going to talk about a
whole bunch of things today. We’re going to talk about the condition of the dolls. We’re
going to talk about maybe their outfits if they’re original or not. We’re going to talk
about those terrible reproductions, fakes, we’re going to look at those. We’re going
to take a look at what they meant in terms of history. And if you really still like them
if you’re a baby boomer, because if they have an emotional attachment that’s a good thing.
We’re going to talk about maybe some dolls that are new that look old so you don’t want
to be fooled. We’re going to talk about eyes. We’re going to talk about hair. We’re going
to talk about lots of hair. We’re going to talk about the composition and what happens
when the doll’s old and what may happen to the composition as it ages and how you may
want to watch for that in terms of damage. We’re going to talk about celebrities. So
we’re going to just cover the whole spectrum of what might be out there for you if you
want to start or you want to grow your collection. Let’s go.

  1. I have collected dolls since I was ..well..I think since I came into this world..almost 70 years ago. I even worked for Mattel for some time. I have to say, If I knew you, we would be most likely be best friends and boy would we have fun, you getting mad at me for teaching you all the "doll" info I will be taking to my grave, since out of 9 kids, none of them ever liked dolls. Your "YouTube" vids crack me up so please make more. I am NOT going to tell you what you DON'T KNOW about dolls, is a lot.. But at least you give it your best. Smiles to you and yours..
