Challenging Cabbies

I've been "collecting" cabbage patch kids to clean up and restore like new. I have a lot of baldies that I don't want to reroot because they're just so darn cute as they are. This last bunch that I got, though, will definitely need reroots. I'll update this blog as I go, but for now they've had a bath and are at the "dermatologist clinic".


Here is a head mould #4, tag cut but removed head and found he's from the SS factory, which was surpising because he has a grayish tint to his head. Pen marks on the ear and just above it. A few smudges and clear rubs.

All cleaned up and at the dermatologist clinic. Clear rubs came off, using a fingernail buffer. Smudges are gone. Zit cream will remove the ink.

Head mould #3. No tag. This poor guy needs a total facial.

Discoloration of the skin, so much so that I just cut his hair. He’ll definitely be a reroot. He must have been wet and outside for a while—his scalp was discolored in the shape of his hair.

Ink marks, and pox (the little brown spots).

Zit cream on his entire face.

This #3 baldie has pox.

Now he really looks like he has zits. But doesn’t he look so much happier?

#1 with a lot that needs done. Eyes will need repainted. Ear has a scrape. Lots of clear rubs and discoloration of the skin.

Using the fingernail buffer, I managed to make the scrape on his ear far less noticeable. He had other scrapes, too, that the buffer got out really well. I ran out of zit cream, so he still needs more.

This #3 redhead wasn’t too bad, either. Her hair is cut, so I will give her a reroot. She had a few clear rubs and one pox on her face.

This little guy (#1) was the best. No pox, very few clear rubs, no ink spots. But his hair was cut.

He looks good as new, except for his hair.
