the Precious Moments dolls were designed to be toys for children to play with. Knowing
assured that they certainly are durable enough for display. So, please, if you have the
room, take your dolls out of the boxes and the bags and ENJOY them! Thats
what they were made for. But, once theyre out, how can you keep them
in mint condition?
If the dolls vinyl body parts ever
get dirty, first try cleaning spots with soap and water. If there are pen marks or
permanant looking ink on the vinyl, first try to erase the spots with an pencil's eraser.
If this doesn't work, try a little fingernail polish remover on a dab of cotton or
q-tip. (Be careful around the eyes though!)
What about the hair? Dont forget that many of these dolls were meant for play, so most of them have rooted hair. If youre gentle, for most of the dolls, its fine to gently brush or comb the hair with a vented brush or pickreally! If my dolls hair ever gets truly dirty, I even wash it with shampoo!Really! To put curls back in the hair, just style it with pin curls.
Sometimes a few strands of hair might come out during the first combing, but as long as its just a few, youll never notice it. Always be delicate, but its fineshoot its FUN to fix your dolls up and make them look fantastic.
As long as a doll has its original tag and certificate if appropriate and it is clean and not damaged or have missing parts, it is worth mint condition prices.
