Description

The Do-It-Yourself Rejuvenation Kit For 18” American Girl Dolls©


We've been selling this kit since 2009 and have finally brought it to Etsy!

Why pay someone to repair your 18” vinyl doll when you can do it yourself for much cheaper? The Rejuvenation Kit provides the common doll owner with essential information and hard-to-come-by materials needed to restore an 18” vinyl doll like American Girl Dolls.

Learn How To:
Reattach lost arms and legs
Restring* loose doll joints
Clean & tame frizzy and tangled hair
Rewig dolls with hopeless haircuts
Remove most spots & stains from the cloth body of the doll
Remove most dirt, scuff marks, & stains from the vinyl limbs & head
Replace broken or too-short neck strings
Style doll hair without damaging it

*Replacing the elastic joints that hold together your doll is a process called “restringing.” To test to see if your doll needs to be restrung, place her on her back and tilt the limbs up at a 45° angle. If the limbs slide back to the floor then the elastic has stretched out and needs to be restrung.

Materials Included
10 Metal Fasteners
5 Black & White Elastic Cords
1 Metal Clamp
1 Doll Wig Hairbrush
1 Instructional DVD
1 White Neck String (2.0mm Braided Cotton Cord)
This is enough materials to repair one doll. Please note that we included 2 extra fasteners and 1 extra cord just in case you mess up!


Have More Than One Doll In Need of Rejuvenation?
This kit is perfect for doll owners with multiple dolls that need to be repaired. The instructions provided can be used over and over again, and reordering supplies to restring your dolls is easy! We sell a Restringing Kit with just the elastic bands & metal fasteners you will need to do an additional doll.

Kit Specifications
The DVD runs approximately 26 minutes in length and is a compilation of pictures, videos, and verbal instructions.
DVD menu allows user to watch just one segment or all of them (recommended).
The DVD is burned onto a DVD-R disk in the standard MPEG-2 format
The manufacturer, make, and color of all of the materials in this kit varies by availability and market price. You may receive a straight metal clamp instead of a curved one, or black and white webbed elastic cord instead of just white, for example.
