When the doll sells for $4,000, it’s a lot more than a dollar
Half dollar dolls have been selling for as little as $4 in recent years.
But that is expected to change.
According to the company’s CEO, Lina Jantzen, the doll’s popularity will skyrocket once its real-world price drops below $1,000.
“It’s going to be a massive trend,” she said.
“Half dollars are going to go up in value.
It’s going be really cool.”
Ms Jantzens dolls are made from 100% natural materials, with a face-shaped head and a pink face, and are designed to be worn with a pair of shoes.
“We’re really trying to make a product that’s as cool as it’s supposed to be,” she told the ABC.
“If we can sell half dollars for $1 each, that’s really exciting.”
The dolls have already sold out in Australia, with half dollars sold for $3.99 each on eBay.
But they have not been the only thing that have sold for a dollar, as other dolls have also seen demand increase.
One doll, the Mummy doll, sold for around $8.99, while another doll, The Doll of Destiny sold for as much as $10.50 on eBay last year.
The $1.99 dolls, which come with a matching hat, are currently being sold on eBay for as low as $1 on average.
Ms Jontzens said she wanted to create a doll that would sell for $10,000 in the US.
“I think the doll will go up to $10k,” she explained.
“People who love the dolls are going for the half dollar and it’s going a little bit crazy.”
Ms Oltman said she hopes the trend will continue, as it is something that is still popular in the States.
“For us it’s the best of both worlds, we are going back to the roots,” she added.
“You can get half dollars and still be selling them at half prices.”
