Q: I have a baby Ricky Jr. doll and stuffed cloth Lucy doll from the "I Love Lucy" TV show. I also have a 1972 Bat Mobile, and lots of Fisher Price toys dating from 1965 to 1970. How can I find out what such toys are worth?

A: A circa 1953-1954, 20-inch Ricky Jr. baby doll in its original box has a value of $300 in the best condition, whereas a 27-inch, stuffed cloth Lucy doll with a molded plastic face dating from the 1950s is worth about $150 in fine condition. To sell the dolls, or to check out the value of the Bat Mobile, write Ted Hake, P.O. Box 1444, Dept.

Mr. Barrows especially wants Fisher Price toys dating from the 1930s and early '40s, and says he'll pay up to $1,000 for a 1937 Fisher Price, No. 160, Donald and Donna Duck example in decent shape.
