Description

Doll Restringing Kit - Works with 18” American Girl Dolls©

We've been selling this kit since 2009, and we are now finally bringing them to Etsy!

What Is Restringing?
Restringing is the process of replacing elastic joints that hold together a doll. You would do this if your doll has lost an arm or a leg, if any of its joints are floppy, if it cannot stand up, etc. This type of restringing only works on dolls with individual elastic joints, such as American Girl Dolls©.

Does My Doll Need To Be Restrung?
To test to see if your doll needs to be restrung, place it on its back and tilt the limbs up at a 45° angle. If the limbs move after you remove your hands (i.e. sliding down to the floor), then the elastic has stretched out and needs to be restrung. Dolls which are properly strung should be able to stand upright on a flat surface on the first try without aid.

Kit Specifications:
This Restringing Kit provides NO INSTRUCTION, simply the MATERIALS you need to restring an 18” vinyl doll with individual elastic joints, such as those had by all 18" American Girl® dolls. The lack of an instructional DVD is to keep costs down.

This kit is to resupply customers who have bought our original Rejuvenation Kit or already know how to restring a doll. If you need instruction on how to restring and restore your doll, purchase the original Rejuvenation Kit, since it contains a DVD with detailed pictures, videos, and instructions.

Contents:
8 Metal Fasteners & 4 Elastic Cords (enough to restring one entire 18" American Girl doll).

The color of elastic cord in this kit varies (usually white or white with black webbing). The color of the cord does not matter because it cannot be seen when the doll is reassembled.

Elastic cords are hand-cut and each measure approximately 3 1/4", which is an ample length for restringing when following our directions.

Our metal fasteners are thick in order to more securely hold the elastic under tension. They will require some hand strength to crimp.
