PADUCAH, Ky. (AP) – Four Paducah men have about 25,000 dolls left to sell of the 30,000 that they inherited from their mother.

The brothers tell WPSD-TV (http://bit.ly/1TKg0A2) their mother, Colleen Hobgood, died in April and her last wish was for them to sell the 30,000 dolls she collected during her lifetime and split the profits.

Bob Hobgood says he almost wishes his mother had gotten stocks instead. He says his mother paid between $40 and $100 for many of the dolls, but that the brothers are selling them for “a whole lot less than that.”

The Hobgoods have donated a truckload of dolls to Toys for Tots and plan on donating more to WSPD-TV’s toy drive. They plan to have a doll sale in March, and are selling some on Ebay.
