Are you interested in any of these? I truly appreciate all your help. Would just like them to go to someone who would appreciate them.
I don't know if you know the names of the dolls you have so I will list them in order, along with positives and negatives that will affect the prices. In general, bendleg dolls should bend in three positions and make a clicking noise when they bend. There should be no pin pricks, chew marks, or stains. Rooted lashes should be straight with no missing plugs. These will affect the prices.
Blonde ponytail Barbie - looks like what collectors call a #5. I can't tell from the photos if she has all of her lipstick and eyebrows. Her hair looks nice. Legs are slightly bowed. She should have one earring hole per ear and no green or discoloration. If there are paint rubs, it will affect her price. Ditto if the ears are green.
Brunette straight leg/Standard Skipper in her swimsuit. She is wearing the ribbon for Stacey. If I were selling her, I'd probably price her at $20-30.
Malibu Barbie. She's wearing the bikini top for Talking Barbie and the skirt to Tangerine Scene. The country (on her butt) determines a lot. If she's marked Japan, it's better than other countries. Looks like her arm is off in the last photo. If so, she's only good for parts.
Blonde Casey wearing Barbie's Patio Party. Often one ear is pale or green from her earring. That will affect her value.
Blonde Living Barbie in the dress Lunch on the Terrace. Arms should bend and have no stains.
Blonde Twist 'n Turn Stacey in the top of Lemon Kick. Her hair ribbon is on Skipper. Her hair should be put back in a ponytail and tied with the ribbon. She also should have three spitcurls (one on forehead and one by each ear).
Blonde Talking Barbie in top for Tangerine Scene. Legs should be attached at hips and be able to move (not frozen in place). She should have a pull string in the back. Usually they no longer talk.
Blonde Francie (hard to tell if she is a Twist 'n Turn or a Bendable Leg, which doesn't move at the waist) in the culottes to Pazam!
If you have more clothes, I will be glad to help with IDs. Also, if you can post a closeup of the ponytail I can give you a better idea on her.
