As you have already read before purchasing a Smart Doll, you know that each and every one is hand made and because of this, there are no two Smart Dolls that are ever the same. The shapes of the shell mold, surface, wig, makeup and joint torque will all differ slightly.
This post will be updated often to help folks who prefer to customize their Smart Doll and will also include maintenance tips.
Before you read this you should read the Welcome Guide.
Some folks prefer their joints tight - some prefer them loose - unfortunately we cant make custom dolls with varying torque. Smart Doll joints are also not designed to last a millennium and may wear down just like parts of a car.
Fortunately, you can change the torque (stiffness of joint) yourself with these easy peasy steps. First off - remove joint by pulling out like so.
If you want to make a joint stiffer, spray a load (loads and loads) of Break Cleaner on the joint and leave to dry for an hour or so - done! No damage will be caused to the joint. What the Break Cleaner does is remove some of the grease from inside the joint.
If buying from Amazon then use the following links.
Does not have to be the above brand - just something similar that does the same job.
All our apparel items have stain warnings if there is a chance that they will leave stains - like the Jeans.
If you do encounter staining, get hold of some paint thinner and rub against the area gently.
As you handle your Smart Doll, oil and grub from your hands may transfer to the skin of the doll making the surface shiny. To fix this all you need to do is gently rub some Magic Eraser over the surface. Done!
