For What It’s Worth

We frequently have visitors drop by with a childhood Christmas present inquiring about its value. A lady recently brought in a Steiff Lady Bug trolly that she received in 1954 when she was 3 years old. Named “Betty Bugala,” this well used toy is an uncommon form for Steiff and could be found in the marketplace for around $250 but the value is priceless.
