The most common problem:
Broken or Missing pullstring
The pullstring on these talkers
often breaks and disappears
into the doll.

Talky Town REPLACES that
frazzled and worn pullstring
with FRESH NEW pullstring fully
compatible with these
Ideal-made talkers. New string
means more pulls, less jamming,
longer life for your talker.

Talky Town can expertly replace
the pullstring and give your
Talker a new life. How many of
these precious dolls have been
trashed because they simply
stopped talking? We want to fix
them, and do it right so keep
reading to find out more...
Dried out lubrication
Inferior materials
With our basic repair service
we clean and relubricate the
mechanisms with compounds that
are healthy & safe for them.

When these talkers were
produced the manufacturers
used some substandard
materials to help maintain
pullstring "health". They did
what they could with what was
available at the time -- but
those materials over time will
have degenerated and most
likely also contaminated the
interior of the talking
mechanism.

Talky Town replaces these
materials with modern day
materials that will last
longer and perform more
efficiently over time.
Remember unless a talker has
been repaired/refurbished it
is ready to "bust" at any
time. Buying another worn-out
mechanism isn't going to help.
 
When things look bad...
There is still hope!
On occasion, the
talking mechanism can
be so badly damaged
that repair is just  
not possible.

In these extreme cases
though Talky Town can
install a good
refurbished mechanism
in your treasured doll
so she can certainly
talk again. The
refurbished mechanisms
receive the same care
that we perform in the
Basic Service.

A Word of Good Advice:
All models of Crissy and Velvet Talky dolls
contain high-tension spring-loaded parts.
Lack of skill disassembling these parts by
the novice could render the mechanism
unrepairable.

"Do-it-yourself" and very likely you will
require a replacement mechanism costing you
more... when a repair job could have restored
the doll's mechanism. Even opening the doll
could damage it if your are unfamiliar with
repairing them. Also consider merely getting
another cheap talky doll at an online auction
gets you nothing but another worn-down used
talking mechanism that could break at any time
even if you were able to swap them out
yourself successfully.
Crissy and Velvet Talkers get a New Start...RIght here!
