How to Unsquish a Pony?
« on: October 16, 2017, 01:03:53 AM »
I have two ponies - one Greek one French that got squished in a box and now stand a little wobbly. One had her body squished and the other had her leg pushed in. They are both proud pose. They still stand but their footprints are a bit off.
Has anyone else had this happen? How did you reform them?
I have been thinking about rubberbands or makeshift stands to get them back into proper position. But before I started experimenting with Nirvanas I wanted to get some opinions.

Hot but not boiling water can help puff out and reshape.Put something between the legs.

This happens when a pony is stored for many years, the plastic get squished out of shape.

Leave a Whisper has suggested the best method for fixing them :bigups: very hot water (just boiled), dip the pony part that's affected in and allow to cool. Sometimes you do need to use a leg brace (something like a pen) to hold the legs in place. It may take a couple of treatments to fix so don't worry if it doesn't work first time.

The heat works by reawakening the plastic's memory :)
