I'm not sure if I should be asking such a question like this in this type of forum, but I have searched it with the keywords "instruction manuals", "maintenance" and "stringing", which yielded no relevant answers as far I could browse through five pages. But if this question is in the wrong forum and such, moderators please move it the the correct forum or delete it if neccessary. Okay I remembered browsing in the Box Opening thread where I came up upon an Iplehouse box opening where they featured I think an instructions manual or book of some sort on how to string the doll, basic doll maintenance and etcetera. I'm just wondering if all companies have these and if you have to specifically ask for one. Then I got to thinking that if you have to specifically ask for one, why couldn't they provide under the supplies list for other customers to buy it? I think it would be quite useful for those who are new into the hobby, and those that want to try stringing their doll. So here are my questions that are up for discussion if you want to elaborate and give your opinion on this! If you were to purchase a doll from the company and wanted a manual, do you have to specifcally ask for one? And if so, how would you do it? (Via notes, email...?) Should ABJD companies provide instruction/basic maintenance/information manuals for their dolls and about the dolls themselves under BJD Supplies/Tool/Miscellaneous items? For those of you who have these manuals what do you think of them? Were they helpful? Could they be improved? State your opinion on them if you would please. Many thank yous for reading this and again I apologise to the moderators in advance if this is under the wrong forum or if there was a repeat of this.
