Hey friends, I'm in a quandary. I LOVE old dolls. Retro dolls are my thing. That's not to say I don't like new dolls, I love them! I'm just really obsessed with those huge eyes and tiny mouths (and crappy posing lol). So I have my eye on a doll on Mandarake that is a) old, b) a one-off, c) has the original face up, d) has the original eyes glued in, e) is a complete full set, and f) is hella yellow. The face up is ugly, like most old Volks face ups. The eyes don't even really show in the photos, so I don't know what they even look like. She's REALLY yellow, and has a mark on her face (looks like it would come off with a little Magic Eraser). Here's my dilemma: should I wipe her face up, whiten her, take out her eyes, and send her off to be beautified? Do I look at her as a collector's item that needs to be preserved in its original form, or as a toy to be played with and modified? I'd like to hear your ideas and opinions!
