So I was finishing the last Christmas baby - Julchen by Linde Scherer - I went to put the neck ring on and the neck fell apart. It fell apart. Disintegrated!!! I had to call and tell my sister that her granddaughter wouldn’t be getting her doll. Fortunately, I had a Honey already made so she will be getting that one. I guess that’s what happens when you run it down to the wire. Just glad I had one to substitute.
Oh that’s horrible! Very glad you had a sub baby on hand.
So sorry to hear that happened! Terrible! But glad you have a replacement.
Why would that happen? Was the vinyl defective? I would call whichever dealer you bought it from and let them know.
how awful for that to happen, but lucky you had a replacement and it is family. BUT that is not your fault, nothing to do with rushing. I had the Lisa head totally disintegrate. It was the consistency of crumbly cheese. They sent me new head free of charge…
Make sure that you contact the Linde Scherer distributor Dollpoint. and send them pics.
Now that would be scary! Talk about being neck and neck… Glad you had a substitute!!
I think it must have been. I just wish it had happened a bit earlier in the process if it had to happen…before I finished rooting it.
That’s the way the inside of this neck looked. I will contact them after Christmas.
I really like Linde Scherer’s kits but this makes me uneasy.
I’m relieved you had a second baby waiting in the wings though xx
Oh nooooo…very lucky that you had another baby around; geez…will be interesting to hear what the dealer has to say. So sorry that happened!
I have an older Linda Sherer doll on my shelf. Now I don’t know whether I’ll ever make her. Is there any way to recognize the problem before you start?
Not that I know of. I did notice that the vinyl was malformed near the hole in the limbs but nothing other than that. The limbs still appear to be fine but the neck…not so much.
