      It was very helpful for those that have the dolls and do have both children, grandchildren and for themselves. That’s who the story was for. Articles I’m not interested in I don’t read and I certainly don’t respond to them.

    Aren’t these dolls expensive? I would try it fix it too. I know nothing about toys that kids play with, but one think stays the same. Girls like dolls.

    That’s good to know. If you have a doll, you don’t want it to lose a limb.

    When I was a kid I had a Chrissy doll with growing hair. I thought her hair would grow, so I cut it off.

    Can we comment on a post of own choosing? It’s hard to comment daily. Especially if the subject has no relevance to us.

    Sounds like quite a bit of work. But, it’s better than throwing the doll out because it’s broken.

    She got upset when you took the head off? She must be very sensitive. Luckily you could repair it.

    If I spent a lot of money on a doll for a child, you betcha, I’d fix it when it broke.

    Thank you so much! : ) You saved our otherwise mint Kirsten doll who belonged to our friend who passed away. She was so floppy and now she can stand and hold poise in her arms. My daughter is so happy! No waiting for doll hospital. I ordered new limb fasteners just to have at hand, just to be on the safe side.
