A person at the top responded to the query about the decal eyes from a collector. He said that the "new technique will ensure that the eye alignment is always correct."
Someone said, "What if the decals are misaligned?" Hmmmm.
Yes, boys and girls, that was the answer.
Going forward, what do you think?
Will you spend more than $100 for a doll whose eyes are decals even if they are sealed?
I understand that velcro is in use as well.
I don't think I would have known that Dasha's eyes were decals unless I read about it.
It sounds like a decision that was made to cut production costs. I can understand that. They are in business to make money after all.
Did you know that you can buy a sheet of doll eye decals (there are hundreds of styles and sizes to choose from) for about $5.?
