    It's extremely difficult to put a price on something of such rarity. Very seldom do they come on the market, so there really isn't much of a track record for value to be found online. I see that one was listed and did sell on eBay back in 2007 and another in 2008. Unfortunately, that information comes from the site worthpoint, who requites you to sign-up for their membership to see the price items sell at.

    Here's a link to on of the the worthpoint listing...


    As far as what it would be worth today; I don't know. The market for most collectibles fell dramatically when the economy collapsed. However, given the doll's rarity, such a fall might not effect it much.

    In short, I couldn't really tell you how much it was worth. Truth be told, any item is only worth however much someone is willing to pay for it. You have Dominos Pizza collectors, Muppet collectors, and Advertising collectors who could potentially be interested in it, so you could find a few people fighting over it.

    With something of such evident rarity, the best advice I could give you is to research. Maybe take a bunch of different pictures then look into some auction houses. Contact them (especially thouse who specialize in advertising or toys) and see what they have to say. Most reputable ones will offer you a free basic apprasial of what they think it could sell for, assuming they know. Or, you could put it up on eBay and see how it goes. eBay is free to list most items now (up to 50 listings per month), so there's not much to lose. Do as much research as you can stand before then to get an idea of what price point you should list it at. Based on my own personal experiences with buying, selling, and tracking similar items, I'd say you Bad Andy Doll should probably be worth a couple hundred dollars, but that's really just my gut reaction. If you get a couple people who want it bad enough, the value could skyrocket.

    You're welcome. I only wish I could give you a more definative answer as to it's value, but I just can't at this time. If I do happen to find out anything more, I'll let you know.

    sorry for the dely in my reply.
    i contacted worthpoint to get a apprasil, the returned the infomation to me just today. The last bad andy dolls surfesed in and around 07, the highest sale on EBAY was for almost $200,for a gently used andy. My "Bad Andy" is in pristine condition,never touched kids hands,no smoke smell,no animal smell,his mouth is still bright pink,his tuff of hair is complete and still nice yellow,has both eyes,all limbs and tail. I was told by several toy places and people that now thats its 011, I would have a asking price of somewere around $700.00 he is very rare, i got in touch with the puppeteer company and dominoes advertising,still waiting to hear back from them,but the puppet company,that made teh commercials were shocked there was one around that didnt meet the fate of a child.
    any help would be appreciated any anyone interested i'd love to hear from. i feel my asking price is fair and kinda low,but we shall see

    They're really that rare? I won quite a few in a crane machine at the Boardwalk in Seaside Heights a few years ago.
