vintage rubber face with a sticky face?
« on: September 04, 2018, 01:56:32 PM »
According to the seller, the face feels sticky and they even tried to wipe it off and the stickiness did not go away. I've only recently started collecting older toys so I'm not really familiar with what this could be, I'm guessing it's like when ponies get sticky.. Would this be one to avoid?

Not all that familiar with rubber, but it looks like sometimes they have plasticizer added just like ponies, which would be a very likely explanation. The face should be getting harder if it is plasticizer causing the stickiness.

Yeah, that makes sense if that's it. I couldn't really think of what else it could be but I'm not sure if it could possibly be a potential toxic issue.

Nahhhh not unless you're making a daily habit of licking your dolls' faces!  LOL 

yeah it's just plasticizer loss.  It happens to plastic toys.

Ah, okay lol. I assumed it wouldn't be a problem as long as it wasn't being ingested but I read something similar happening with old dolls and someone said it's possible for the said doll to be leaking toxins like asbestos so I wasn't sure if this would possibly be an issue or not for the toy I'm looking at. One site also said this could also affect other dolls but I'm not sure if this is true or not.
