The Most Valuable Troll Dolls Of All Time

Let's take a trip down memory lane, through the world of Troll dolls, to see if you might have any valuable versions of the toys buried away. The quirky creatures, with funky hair that often stands straight up, originated in 1959 when Danish woodcarver Thomas Dam couldn't afford to purchase his daughter a Christmas gift, so he instead carved her a Troll figurine out of wood. And so began the Troll doll craze, which in its early days included companies Dam Things, Scandinavia House, and Uneeda (Wishnik) popping up in hopes of banking on the trend. Later on, Russ would follow suit, with modern versions of Dam's original predecessors.

The collectibles subsequently became a popular choice in the world of toys - and some are now worth a lot of money. Not all Trolls are going to make one rich, of course, with vintage Trolls bringing in the most cash. However, if you have kept them in either pristine condition or their original packaging, the amount of cash they could rake in may come as a surprise. It's important to note that not all Trolls are created equal, with a variety of spins made on their designs - from animalistic figurines to the widely popular dolls with wild-colored hair that often first come to mind.

Here is a rundown of the most expensive Troll dolls around, which could land you a pretty penny should you decide to put them on the market.
