A seller on eBay (janney52) tells how a Toni doll rescue happened:
“This doll was sold to me with terrible face problems. I have an extra Toni head so I planned to change the head. When she arrived I found out she was a walker doll, not a strung Toni doll. The insides of the heads are different. So I decided to color match her face paint and it turned out nice. I added one eyebrow and added a new rubber band in the head.
Her hair and dress have been washed. Also curled her wig. I’m glad I was able to save her. So my investment is $55 for the doll and shipping. $14 for color matched paint. A nice Ideal dress – can’t remember the cost, new panties $1 and shoes. I worked 2 days on and off on Miss Toni.
Also fixed the eyes. The weight didn’t get pushed further to the left. You have to get it far enough forward so it doesn’t catch on the rubber band. That’s why so many walkers have messed up eyes. The eye weight catches the rubber band.
So I have 3 sizes of walker dolls at one time. The paint color, beautiful blonde wigs, different eyes. They are very similar. I was even able to use the same paint on the P93 and P92 walkers.
I always Oxyclean the doll clothes. I started to boil the water and add the Oxyclean. I drop the doll clothes in the hot Oxyclean water. Sometimes it’s clean in minutes. No more having sinks full of doll clothes soaking for 2 days.
This Toni doll deserves a new Mama and home. I hope someone will consider my rescue doll. Thank you.”
