OUTFIT PRICE: $130+ in mint condition. The outfit comes with a turquoise skirt as well (not shown). Shoes are clear, open-toed with glitter and HTF.
COMMENTS: The lips have faded to yellow, which is common with American Girl dolls. Dolls are often found with knees that do not "click" properly into the bendable position. Dolls look fantastic in the 1600s mid 1960s outfits such as this one. A favorite with collectors.
MARKET REPORT: American Girl Barbie dolls have lost some of their allure with collectors in the last few years, and excellent examples can now be found for under $300. However, expect to pay more for desirable hair colors, longer hair, and truly mint examples. This outfit has proven to be somewhat hard to find in mint condition, and its value has increased from 1999 to 2003.
