Factory Mess ups. My Lagoona has two right hands!
« on: February 23, 2019, 03:06:54 AM »
Hi everyone!

I thought it'd be fun to share some factory 'defects', and see if we have some in common... Yesterday while washing my ghoul spirit Lagoona' hair (I got her 2 days ago!) I realised she's got 2 right hands...  :blink:

That's so weird! My Lagoona from the same line also had two right hands! Luckily I had an extra Lagoona lying around so they swapped hands. I wonder if all of the We R Monster High Lagoonas were released the same way? :wonder:

If you bought her new maybe Mattel will send you free replacement hands? She was released so long ago it's probably way too late for that, but it might be worth a shot to email them.

My sister's Dead Tired Abbey came with two left slippers.  When we contacted Mattel about it, they just sent an entire new one since they did not have slippers laying around to send.  But that was a very long time ago.

Ohhhh so it's a "common" flaw for that line then! I don't have any spare Lagoona's but I will definitely try to get one from my local Flea Market. It was  a second hand doll... So I don't think Mattel would send me any spare hands, moreover here in Spain customer's service is not half as efficient as in some other places!

Wooow that is so cool!!! I doubt they would now! My doll was a second hand find tho, so :/

My Gloom and Bloom Jinafire has two right hands :dazed: Thankfully that's the only defect in my whole collection.

Did anyone else's Monster Family Cleo come with a little section of burnt hair? I bought her new and when I unboxed her and combed her hair, I noticed that some of it looks exactly like when you burn doll hair with a flat iron. (Been there, done that. :blush: ) Luckily it's on the underside of her head, so I can hide it pretty easily and it doesn't bother me too much. Just curious if this was a common defect or a one off.

That stinks about Spain's lack of customer service! In the US it's pretty hit or miss. Good luck finding a left hand for your Lagoona! :)

EAH not MH, but I have a Featherly who, uh..



...has a little problem with her foot.  ^^;

I also had a weird incident where I deboxed a Jinafire and half her finger snapped right off, not sure what happened there..

Not a MH doll, but I bought a Beast doll from the Disney store on Tuesday and one of his legs is longer than the other!

Haha, good thread idea!

I bought a secondhand CAM Gargoyle manster awhile back, when he showed up he had two left feet!!

I thought it was hilarious because when people say someone can't dance or is clumsy,  they say 'oh, they have 2 left feet' - so I've kept him as-is.

Thats hilarious actually. Finding a replacement foot for that one might be tough. So yeah, for the laugh, you should leave it as it is! Hhaa

I have a Raya doll from the Jem line who has two of the same hand (I can't remember which) and, a lot more awkwardly, a Mexican Shana doll whose hands are caucasian. I got her second hand but Mexican Jem doll hands are so delicate they break if you look at them, so it's really unlikely they were swapped. They wouldn't have survived the switch.

I don't see these as flaws, more quirks. I love when stuff like this happens because it makes them special :) Maybe I'm a minority :D

Admittedly I'd feel different about burnt hair mind you O.O. But mismatched hands? Nobody's perfect ;)

No, I just checked mine and it has regular left and right hands. So I guess it was a batch, maybe?

Ah, okay. It was probably was just a batch, then. :)

That's what I thought! I can put shoes on and it's not really going to be noticeable, but then I KNOW it's there anyway. I think it's funny.

I mean, they're monsters anyway…what's wrong with a mismatched body part or two?!   :biggrin:
