Consult with antique toy dealers and auction experts to determine the value of stuffed Paddington Bear toys, or find estimated values by researching current and recent sales of similar items from auction websites. The company that produces Paddington Bear also recommends contacting The Paddington Bear Collective, as of 2015.
The Paddington Bear Collective specializes in selling Paddington Bear memorabilia and collectibles. As of 2015, they also accept questions and inquiries from fans and collectors, including people who wish to sell their Paddington Bear toys. They can provide information on the history of the bear as well as the estimated value.
eBay is another source for determining the value of Paddington Bear stuffed toys. A search for relevant listings can be refined to display only sold listings. Sold listings, as opposed to available listings, are a good indicator of current market value, since there is a record of people willing to pay a certain price.
The value of a Paddington Bear stuffed toy varies depending on age and condition. The most valuable bears are typically the oldest ones from Gabrielle Designs. These originals toys have sold for $200 to $300 on eBay and The Paddington Collective. Extra-tall bears that were display models have sold for as much as $1,000 on eBay.
