How to Identify and Value Your Cherished Teddies

If you have a Cherished Teddies ornament that you want to see, follow these steps to work out the value. You may want to write down the important info as you go.

Model and Registration Numbers

Identifying the model and registration numbers (two separate numbers) is the first step and one that cannot be skipped. Without these numbers, you cannot accurately value your item. Furthermore, the serious collectors who are willing to spend a lot of money to collect Cherished Teddies won’t spend a dime if you cannot verify the model and registration number for them.

Model Number

The model number is either a short string of letters or numbers. It could be the letters CRT or CT followed by some numbers, or a string of numbers with a letter at the end, or simply just a string of numbers.

Registration numbers, on the other hand, always have a slash in the middle. That’s the easiest way to tell them apart.

Registration Number

The first part of the registration number identifies the year it was made. This is codified, to a certain extent, so don’t expect to see ‘1997’ printed clearly! The first number, e.g. 4, would indicate that it was made in 1994. If you have a Roman numeral instead, e.g. IV, that would instead indicate that it was made in 2004.

You can usually work out the date with a little common sense, but often the quicker way is to just type the registration number into Google or eBay, and you will quickly find the model you have with the year clearly indicated.

Factors that Impact Value

These are the factors you want to look for when determining how valuable it is.

  • Condition – if there is a lot of damage, it’s not going to be worth much. Some collectors can stomach a little damage if the item is retired or limited (see below) but large cracks and chips are going to make most items worthless.
  • Age – the older the better! Cherished Teddies began production in 1991, so they are vintage items. The older your model is, the more likely it is rare too.
  • Packaging – although not essential, having the original packaging in good condition can add a little extra to the value.
  • Retired Status – Cherished Teddies are made with a mold. When the mold breaks, the model is retired and cannot be made again. This makes it far more valuable as the number available becomes limited.
  • Unique and Limited Editions – some Cherished Teddies were purposefully released as limited edition or have been signed or have another discernible feature that sets them apart. This adds to the value, as long as the model is authentic.

Note down these features. If your model is chipped, without the original packaging, and doesn’t show as retired when you look for it online, then it’s probably not worth much.

Finding a Price Online

To find the value of your Cherished Teddies, the easiest thing to do is type in the model number and registration number into Google, eBay, or Reddit to find other sellers who have the same item.

Bear in mind that some Cherished Teddies have the same model number but a different registration number – this is because the model was produced in multiple years. In this scenario, the older the model, the more it is worth.
