The ballerina babies? They are not a set of 3.

There are eight G1 ballerina ponies altogether, four adults and four babies. I think the adults go for more than the babies, but I'm not sure what the current rate is these days. Maybe $8-15 depending on condition, accessories, etc? I personally find them a little creepy, but I know they have their fans.

Worth mentioning it may also depend where the OP is, since the adult ballerinas weren't sold in every country. Here in the UK we only had the baby set. I would say that makes the adults rarer but I think that's perspective :) I don't know for sure.

Maybe you'll have better luck adding 'simba fakies' to the title :) Fakies tend to not be too sought after, but I actually haven't seen adult ballerina fakies before, so maybe someone with a bit more fakie knowledge can weigh in on that!

I think there's a facebook group for fakies and fakie collectors out there somewhere?

I don't think many fakies are valuable in monetary terms to MLP collectors as the majority of us focus on the genuine article - but I don't know among actual fakie collectors. There are some here and there's a thread about them somewhere on here - but I think you'd do best trying somewhere that focuses on fakies.

My instinct would be that they don't have a lot of value as even the real ballerinas aren't that expensive if they don't have accessories - but fakie collectors would know better.

I'm not sure of their value, but I'm sure they are wanted by fakie collectors since they're based on real Hasbro molds. :)

Im a Simba collector and I love the ballerinas a lot <3 there are soo many color combos of them! Those three shown are only examples ;) I gotta get mine out of storage to take some pics now :P (PM me if I forget about it, will be a stressful day today).

Concerning their worth; Taffeta is right, they arent worth a lot of money since there arent many collectors but they are surely on the rarer side and hard to get.

These are my four Simba Ballerinas, the one on the left right  (edit : my bad) is my childhood pony <3 The funny thing is, I have now all I need to swap their legs to create solid colored ones XD The legs though... are very stubborn, I would need to pull them really violently and I dont want to destroy my girls <3

Aw but I think they look cool like that with the legs, as if they're wearing tights! :)
