Spice Dolls Sales: 11 millions

Postby ep7210 » 29 Jul 2017, 05:56

Spice Fact
The Official Spice Girls dolls were the 5th best selling toy of 1997 in the UK - shifting over 300,000 dolls before Christmas week.
The Official Spice Girls dolls were also the 2nd best selling toy of 1998 in the United States and remain the best selling celebrity dolls of all time with sales of 11 million!

I wonder which doll sold the most and which sold the least; it kinda was the best poll who was the world fav spice girl right?

Someone on the post commented that the Baby Spice doll was out of stock very quick in the US back in the days. It depends how many of each girl's doll was produced actually. But I doubt that any girl would agree to have their own doll produced less than the others so I suppose it was equal qty for each girl? Just an assumption, of course it was down to the deal of Galoob, and they would have calculated marketing data before production.

I think when Geri was interviewed on Piers Morgan a while ago he asked her who was more popular (or something like that) and Geri said: based on which doll sold the most

Emma, Geri... and I think she left it like that

I remember seeing the Mel B, Victoria and Mel C dolls in a shop window back in late 2000.

When Galoob manufactured these dolls in the 90s, they made more for what they felt they would sell of, so they made five Baby Spice dolls for every four Ginger Spice dolls for every three Scary Spice dolls for every two Posh Spice dolls for every one Sporty Spice doll.

PS: If it was 11 milions 3 years ago already, I bet the number increased since then.

:shrug:
I doubt the dolls are still being made and as people will just buy old dolls online from other fans I can't see it increasing from 11 million.

LOOOL! You must be SO right! Silly me, of course, they're not like music which is still in demand and they keep making them! Will edit it now!

I wonder if that figure is sold or manufactured. There is no arguing that they sold massively, but they were severely over produced. This is the reason they never rose in value. To this day they are still readily available all over EBay at wholesale prices.

They were my favorite thing to collect growing up.
