If there is a thread about this theme I have very bad searching skills and I feel sorry for that This morning I was in a doll clinic. I bought a doll second hand this summer and it exposed that my beautiful Elfdoll Lydia, I kept this name because I like it, had trouble with her muscles, this means: the elastic stings wore out. This was the first (and only) time I bought a doll second hand. Even though Lydia was in good condition apart from that.The doll is 2-3 years old. The seller told me: She had this problems when she got her from Elfdoll. I started collection BJD this year. So I don't know how long these stings stay elastic. I don't have the heart to exchange the strings myself so I was in a doll clinic. The owner had never seen an Asian BJD before but he can help me out. (I don't like to talk about prices here but I hoped it would not be that expensive ) He praised the dolls quality and beauty. ^^ I can pick her up in one week. I hope she will be fine and can finally "stand" next to my other dolls. What I'd like to know is the following: Have you ever needed a doll clinic? Have you made good experience? Do you repair your dolls yourself?
