Now accepting restoration commissions! I've received a lot of requests for this over the years. Now that I have the experience and the time I'm happy to offer this service. I specialize in My Little Ponies but have experience with many types of toys. I offer one of the most extensive lists of restoration services in the MLP collecting community.
See the My Collection section of the site for more examples of my work. I learned using my own collection so that your collection can benefit! I've also done a lot of restorations that are not yet pictured; these photos coming soon! I use high quality products known to toy collectors for decades as well as many products specifically formulated for dolls.
Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like me to give your old toys new life!
Surface Cleaning $5.00 Includes an OxiClean bath where appropriate, surface washing with Dawn dish detergent and a magic eraser, and the removal of stains using acetone (basic hair wash and conditioning included at no extra charge).
Deep Cleaning $10.00 Includes cleaning the inside of the pony, rust and mold removal, and more as needed (basic hair wash and conditioning included at no extra charge).
Repair/Sculpting $15.00 Includes 3D symbols and body parts (an extra fee for materials may apply if you require a large amount of sculpting).
Cancer Removal $10.00 I use the Hydrogen Peroxide/sun soak method described in the Body section of this site. Available April thru September. Please note, the results of this method vary by individual pony and the severity of the staining.
Stain Removal/Whitening $10.00 - $20.00 Price depends on the severity and number of stains to be removed. I may use regular sun-fading with the pony wrapped in paper towel, the paint/sunfade method, or a Hydrogen Peroxide/sun soak depending on the type of stain. Available April - September.
Plasticizer Cleaning $5.00 I use Formula 9-1-1 which is specially formulated for cleaning sticky residue off of dolls. Please note, if the plasticizer in your toy has not fully leached out at the time treatment is applied, the stickiness will return with time. Multiple treatments are often needed before the problem is fully resolved.
