by correspondence is fairly new - some 75 years old - but in a sense,
all learning is home study. And by this we mean, quite simply, that each
person must learn for himself. It has often been assumed that a
teacher somehow drilled knowledge right into a student, much like a seed
drills plant seeds in the soil. This just isn't possible. The teacher
(or book, or experience) can expose the student to information but it is
always up to the student to apply himself and turn the available
information into usable knowledge. Self-teaching, therefore, is
given on how to repair various types of dolls including Tiny Tears,
Betsy Wetsy, and Patti Playpal. Also, instructions are given for
stringing plastic dolls, composition dolls, bisque and antique dolls. Instructions
are included for attaching heads to various different types of dolls, as
well as repairing plastic parts.
Included are 50
pages of instructions and detailed diagrams taken directly from the
manual. An invaluable tool for anyone that collects or repairs these
vintage dolls. This is a good companion guide to my first one,
"Walking Dolls Instruction Repair Guide" sold separately.
