Is this fixable?

This is my 2 year old nephews reborn. She has 3/4 limbs and her arm fell off. The disk popped out of the shoulder but is still connected to the body. Is there a way to fix it or do I need a new body? (Yes I know that reborns aren’t for kids but his mom asked me to make him one and new the risks)

You can buy loose joints and just replace it. But a new body may be easier.


Okay. I was thinking about putting her on a full limbs body so that this doesn’t happen again. He won’t care that it’s limbs are a bit short. Then it would just be a zip tie if the arm falls off right?

The limbs would stick out at an odd angle and I think it’s less cuddly without the arm caps.

The joints are fairly easy to replace. Putting it on a full body won’t work well with 3/4 limbs. They’ll stick out to the sides at an odd angle. I’m wondering how big the hole in the limb cap is. I think it’s pretty unusual for the disk to go through it. For a 2 year old, a cuddle body might be a better option.

Is the baby heavy? If it is heavy and he carries her around by the arm it will prob happen with a cuddle body too unless it is very light. Maybe full limb replacement? Cuddle bodies attach the same way I think. I’d try to make it lighter for sure. I’m picturing my kids with dolls and stuffed animals… the arm was the easiest way for them to carry them

Good luck

It can also help to reinforce the holes for the joints with iron-on interfacing.
