Types of Repair
(Mamas & Growlers)

  Original mammas and growlers had a thin paper or rubber diaphragm and over the years this tears or, in the case of Teddy bears, washing makes them disintegrate.  They (usually) cannot be repaired.  Most plastic doll mamas are replaced by removing a rear cover.  However, some plastic dolls have mamas inserted during assembly and then the body is sealed together, in these cases repair is often impossible without splitting the doll open - unless a mama can be squeezed in through a leg hole.
