Vintage Barbie Doll Values – May 2011

Here are the highest priced items sold in the last month in the vintage Barbie category on eBay.

#1 Vintage Barbie Doll

 

This beautiful, blonde #1 Vintage Barbie Doll was the highest priced Vintage Barbie over the last 30 days.    The seller stated in the description that her Mother purchased the doll at a doll show in the 1970s.    She included her original swimsuit, box, earrings and shoes.

She received 35 bids and sold for $5650.55.  I was thinking that Vintage Barbie Doll Values are dclining, because about 10 or 12 years ago, this doll would have sold for $10,000 to $15,000.  However a similar Barbie doll sold in October 2009 for $4400.

Truly Scrumptious Dolls

The Truly Scrumptious Doll was one of the first “celebrity” Barbie Dolls, released along with the Julia doll in 1969.

The doll is based on a character of the same name from the wildly popular kids movie, Chitty, Chiity, Bang, Bang.

There were two Truly Scrumptious Barbie Dolls – a “standard” one on the traditional straight leg Midge/Barbie body and a Talking Truly Scrumptious.

Both dolls have a Francie head with blue eyes, rooted eyelashes and blonde hair – no bangs, pulled back in a low ponytail and curled at the bottom.
