I have seen a lot of people posting about this in the Monster High tag. We also got an anonymous submission that seems to have been sent to all the MH blogs. I didn’t post it, as it is very over exaggerated and claiming ALL dolls from Indonesia are having this issue. This is NOT true.
I have several dolls from Indonesia, most of which I have had for over the month or so most people have been claiming it takes for the glue to melt. I have dolls that are much older and were received through trade or bought that don’t have this issue. Inky also hasn’t noticed this on any of her dolls, and her apartment gets really hot.
I have both a Spectra and Rochelle, both which I have heard are the most common glue leakers. Neither of them have been affected, and my Spectra even sits under my lamp.
The only one I’ve noticed to have any issue was a Gloom Beach Draculaura I bought for Inky, the other mod. I found her at a Kohl’s who was remodeling, and had apparently found a whole box of them. The thing is, we’re pretty sure it wasn’t even the glue, just hair “grease”. It felt like if you don’t wash your hair for a while, not sticky.
While we have heard of this happening, is doesn’t seem to be as wide spread as most people are making it out to be. So, if you HAVE experienced this, let us know! We want to get an accurate reading on how many people and how many dolls have run into this issue.
