Product Description
These small objects were created to repair the shoulder joint of Busy Barbie, Busy Steffie, Busy Francie, Talking Busy Barbie and Talking Busy Steffie dolls from 1972. The original dolls arms are prone to deterioration due to a reaction between the vinyl of the dolls' arms and the polystyrene of the dolls' torso. They almost always have to be reattached somehow. I used these objects to repair a doll (I printed in the Tough material), and I attached the new joint to the doll by first sawing off the remainder of the original joint so that the shoulder joint is a flat plane. I then used methyl ethyl ketone to soften the area of the repair, then pressed the new joint into the soften polystyrene. I had to hold the materials together for a full minute at least, until the polystyrene began to harden. I then allowed the repair to cure for 24 hours. I then pressed the doll's arms onto the new joint, and it worked well.
