Muppet drum kit: what's it worth and how to sell it?

    Hi all, I'm hoping you might be able to help me work out how to sell a very unusual Muppets collectible.

    I own a "The Muppet Sound" trap drum kit that I was given as a child. It's a working drum kit made from metal (with paper skins), quite like a real drum kit except that it's child-sized and has the Muppets on it.

    It's been a treasured possession for many years, but I'm about to move overseas and can't take it with me, so I'm looking for a good home for it.

    You can see a picture of my Muppet drum kit here; condition-wise, it's in great shape for a child's toy that's almost 30 years old... but a lot of the plating has come off the metal, and it has some extra 'artwork' I added with a texta when I was a kid. (Sorry!)

    I've never sold anything like this before and haven't been able to find anything similar for sale online, so I'm not sure how to sell it or roughly how much it might be worth.

    If anyone could share some tips, please do!

    Sorry Traci, the drumkit is long gone!

    Luckily we were able to find a good home for it before we moved overseas though: we gave it to a friend's children, who absolutely love it to bits.

    We're thrilled to see another generation getting to enjoy such an unusual toy! :)

    This is the second time I've screwed up the format of this thread! I'm sorry!

    I have a drum set but I don't know the value. Sarah, any tips? Thanks :)

    This thread is from 2008 so I really doubt this person is going to respond to you.

    I will say maybe look around on ebay and see how much the going price is or post in the for sale section and see what people offer. People here are usually honest about pricing

    I think someone was actually looking for one of these in the past week or so on the sale/wanted section

    There was one on e-Bay just within the last week or two. It was listed for $75. It didn't receive any bids.
