Barbie dolls are so popular that almost every girl has at least one. There’s no need to throw away or forget about your Barbie doll if she has anatomical issues. If her daughter’s Barbie doll has a damaged neck, don’t despair—it’s easy to fix! The following are some tips to help you mend a Barbie doll‘s broken neck.

Super glue should be used. In the event that your child or you have been playing rough with your doll, the neck may need to be slightly repaired. Use some super-strength glue to repair your Barbie if she has a small crack in her neck. A toothpick will come in handy to push the adhesive into the crevices of the Barbie doll‘s neck. Be sure to press firmly with your fingers while setting the glue, this will help ensure it sticks the right way. You will find yourself fixing your Barbie often if you use hot glue to make this repair.

A neck strap can be added. It may be necessary to use something stronger than crazy glue if the crack in your Barbie doll‘s neck is larger than a slight or small crack. This can result in a monstrosity that makes Barbie the exact opposite of a couture model. You can hide Barbie’s broken neck with a tied strip of tape. It goes without saying that you have to use adhesive to reattach the neck. Since the break is bad and you can’t hide the ugly glue, hide the flaw by adding a neckband on top when it starts to dry. Find a thin one for the ribbon type – the width should not be larger than Barbie’s neck. Then tie it around Barbie’s neck. The ribbon will look like a stylish neck scarf. Complete the ribbon on the neck by making a bow. The accessory will be permanent, so choose a nice ribbon for your wrist.

You can replace a part of the doll. It’s obvious that Barbie dolls can go through a lot of rebuilding when big brother and other destructive friends are around. Replacing Barbie’s broken neck may be the only practical solution if the break is too severe to repair. This is not ideal, but it may be the case. You can also replace the entire top half of a Barbie, but some Barbies don’t allow you to do this. If you can’t replace the top, you have to replace the neck. Use a sharp blade to remove Barbie’s broken neck to make room for a new one. You can cut low enough to allow clothing to mask the scars. If this is not possible, it may be time to give up your broken Barbie.
