Customer Question

I have a Betty the Beautiful Bride doll given to me for Christmas as a child. Her arm connections have gotten a oft and she developed a moldy smell while in storage. She doesn't show exterior signs of mold. How do I remove smell and repair or replace arm connections or who can do it for me? I live in the 98584 zip code.

Hi Barbara,

My name is ***** ***** I"m happy to help.

I highly recommend the Taggerty Doll Clinic in Elmira, New York. You can contact them to inquire about fixing your doll and how much that will cost. Once you agree that this is the solution for you, you can ship the doll to them.

Here is their web site. You should visit and explore to learn about them:
