On some older vinyl dolls, the joints are loose and
won't hold position. To make the joint snug again,
slide some small rubber bands up the arm or leg and
into the joint. This is what doll manufacturing companies did in the 50's and
60's to make the joints snug: they put a rubber band in the joints sometimes so
the limbs would hold position. This method won't work on strung dolls.
This trick also works on modern dolls with the cloth bodies. Sometimes the
arms and legs have a plastic joint inside the cloth body, so the arms and legs
can be positioned. If the limbs are floppy and won't hold position, slide some
rubber bands over the arm or leg and into the joint. This should firm them up
so they will hold position properly.
