ALL-NEW 2014 POP-BEAD KITS
For Restringing Baby Face Dolls
Our unique Pop-Bead method for restringing Baby Face dolls was originally developed in 2012. In October 2014 we made some changes so it will be even easier to restring your Baby Face dolls! PLUS, we designed a slightly different kit for restringing the Bathtub Baby Faces.
Our "POP-BEAD RESTRINGING KIT" includes the cord, beads, washers that you need to completely restring a Baby Face doll.
The method for restringing the Tubbies is the same, but they do require slightly different parts.
- Our #4 stringing cord, approx. 1+ yard per doll.
- 1 -- 23mm wood bead with 3/8 inch hole
- 1 -- large plastic pink bead
- 1 -- large nylon or metal washer
- 3 -- 22mm wood bead with a 7/32 hole.
- 7 -- #8 small metal washers
- 4 -- 1/4 nylon washers
- 2 -- 1/4 metal washers (4 for the Tubbies)
- 2 -- copper crimp sleeves

Baby Face collectors should understand that RESTRINGING is not an incidental adjustment: the parts for the popbead method cost several dollars per doll, even purchased in bulk. And then there's all the labor involved. So if a seller is offering a doll that's completely restrung using an effective method: it adds a lot of value to the Baby Face doll. Especially when we consider that most of the Baby Face dolls are getting weak in the joints after more than 20 years.
