The good, the bad, and the ‘what the….’!

My lot of dolls arrived this morning. It’s excting when you don’t quite know what you are going to get. This was my first view: lot’s of feet!


As you have probably worked out from the title, it was a mixed bag. Let’s start with the good:


The first four are beautiful examples. Simple but well made (sewn together!) in pretty printed fabrics. The seond and third need a little attention but are otherwise well made.

And now for the bad:


I say bad, but it’s nothing some TLC wouldn’t fix. Some of these dolls are in a very bad state and are a good example of why you should always stitch the clothes and not glue them. It’s conincidence that they are all pink!

And now for the “what the…..”!  I just don’t know what to say about this one:

A you can see, the peg is rather alot bigger than a normal peg. He has the bizarrest outfit on, I’m lost for words! If anyone has any printabe ones, please feel free to leave a comment…

I’m never sure about what to do with the ones that need fixing. Some need completely pulling apart and remaking properly but does this spoil the authenticity of them?
