Problem with the new saddle stand
« on: July 31, 2013, 09:20:16 PM »
Sorry if this has been mentioned in the discussions anywhere but I couldn't find anything. I bought the new 13 wishes Frankie today, who is stunning! And I don't mind the new stand except for well a little problem....



Her feet don't reach the bottom XD Like, not even close. So she ends up just flopping around in space if I try to pose her :(






What do?

Lame job, Mattel! :P I'd suggest cutting some black cardstock to-shape to fit between the base and the bottoms of her feet, with a circle cut in the middle for the stand to go through. It blocks the design of the base, but it's a trade-off, I guess.

Do all of the newer dolls come with saddle stands or just the 13 wishes?

^ I know Catty will have a saddle stand as well, so I'd guess it may be for the new 'deluxe' dolls.

ugh..I noticed this yesterday and thought mine was broken! I think my Ghouls Alive dolls feet reach the stands, are they taller?

I noticed my 13 Wishes deluxe dolls have the same issue with the saddle stands too.  I ended up putting them on some of the regular stands because it was driving me crazy :P

Twyla's stand is a regular stand not a saddle stand.

Just the new Haunt the Casbah come with the saddle stands. I think Catty Noir will, too, as previously mentioned. I like the saddle stands, because there isn't that tension moment when clipping it on the waist *Am I going to break the stand?* *Am I going to rip her clothes?* Most stressful moment of my week was clipping that stand onto Webarella!

Is there any way to file down the post? I have a doll a saddle stand might be perfect for since the dress I made is empire style (it starts flaring out under the bustline instead of at the waist). Right now she just leans against my wall with just the stand base so she isn't short.

Also seeking mini Catwalk Kitties fakies, Avea size Frightmares, this Galaxy Starz doll, these Novi Stars fakies, real Novi Vera Tabray, Twilight Teenz Nemonia. Trades Preferred.

All 3 of mine do the same thing  :( Super frustrating, every time one of my cats jumps on the bookcase they're displayed on they topple over.  :annoyed:

Now don't get me wrong I actually LIKE the saddle stands better, they're easier to deal with and don't hurt their clothes, but I need them to WORK properly  :mad: One slight touch and Frankie goes toppling over head first. The only way to fix it would be to put something on the bottom of her shoes to adjust her height or cut the stand in half, file it down, and glue it back together. You can file it down on the top or the bottom :/

I haven't had this problem, but then again, I am not gentle with them when I place them into the saddle. I can lift Frankie by her head and the stand comes with her. [Same with 13W Clawdeen]

Wow, I don't have a doll with saddle stand yet :S I'm curious and a bit scared at the same time XD
I wonder it the new stand is a reaction to the old stands "snapping" off :S

For some reason, my Clawdeen is fine...but the stand that came with my Draculaura is TERRIBLE. I literally can't put ANY doll on it...they're way too short. I think maybe some of them are just wonky =/
