'90s girls, brace yourselves for a tale of tragedy: Molly McIntire, the WWII-era American Girl doll, has recently been "archived." Yes: doll murder. Sadly, Molly is just another casualty, as she now joins several other original historical characters: Felicity passed away in 2011, Kirsten in 2010, and Samantha in 2009. The world is cruel. (Addy, introduced in 1993, is still with us...but, really, for how much longer? I can't take it.)
Unsurprisingly, dolls from the original collection as well as their accessories can be worth a LOT of money (depending, of course, on condition, and degree of newness). Other accessories and used doll prices may surprise you.
Shall we take a look?
Here is a Kirsten doll plus seven other outfits and accompanying accessories, plus bed and trunk: $2,199.99
Here's a Kirsten doll new in the box (increases the value) with book and bed set going for $750.
Here's a rather pricey listing — a Molly doll (she's in a doll hospital outfit here), but she comes with her a decent chunk of Molly's line: $4,958.
So this actually comes with a TON of stuff, but it's still a collection that has appreciated in value...
