Restring Baby Face Dolls by Galoob:
PrillyCharmin's Popbead Method!
This page is for our POPBEAD method for restringing Baby Face dolls. This method was developed in 2012 (and updated several times since.) Our popbead method supercedes any previous methods, although it may be helpful to look at the older methods for ideas in case you have more questions or problems.
We do want to advise you that we're not experts. These methods work for us, but may not work as well for you. Anytime you're working on old dolls, there's a risk involved.
ALSO... we don't know how the materials used will hold up over time. I've tried to anticipate problems, but things can happen that we don't expect. Since Baby Face restoration is still in the Pioneering phase, use our methods at your own risk.
However... The arms, legs and head are each strung separately just like they were in the beginning - and the doll ends up very snug, with better cords than she had originally, too. So I'm very pleased with this method. And, since I'm a collector too, it's important to me that the dolls stay in good shape for a long time!
Once you're comfortable with this procedure, it can take less than an hour to completely restring a Baby Face doll. And she will be VERY snug, good for years to come!
We do need to make the disclaimer that if you are restringing your dolls there is some risk involved. Restring your dolls at your own risk.
