(Replacement Eyes in Soft Plastic Dolls)

Before After
Most soft plastic dolls have a standard eye setup.  The two eyes are completely independent and are in individual eye sockets.  Over the years the plastic pivot pin inside the eye, that allows the eyes to open and close, breaks and the eye gets stuck in one position.  These eyes can be replaced with new eyes which come with eyelashes.  I do not replace just one eye because it is virtually impossible to get a colour and style match and even if possible, the original eye is likely to fail much sooner than the new one and it is cost effective to replace them together.  Please note that we could not replace eyes in Chicco dolls or First Love dolls or dolls that have a voice box inside their head.  DIY ??
