hey ... thinking slightly tangentially... if the Kurhns have knees but not elbows... do any of you guys know if you can take just the arms off of a barbie?
and how?
I thought barbie's arms just popped off? Not to sound morbid but I had many who did this after lots of play. lol. I have some at my mom's house I keep meaning to get and see how they are but forgetting. I can get one friday and see. Smiley I'm sure I have a generic Barbie I can take apart. Smiley
I would love to make barbie jointed that would rock!

why not use a hole model muse, or Barbie type body instead ? Then the color is even too.

Both the Kurhn and the Barbie body have the same head attachments, an inverted 'v' shape inside the head which takes quite a bit of tugging to remove.  Typically, one uses a hair dryer to heat the head plastic a bit to soften it up but I always just yank on the theory that if it's tough enough for a child to play with it, it can take it Cheesy

Well, you are maybe right, but take care anyway - becurse there is many broken Barbie necks  Smiley
Not in my house, but I have seen them on the net, so warm up the head before taken is off.

thanks Nataluna! I really want a Kuhrn doll now! but the shipping on them is so expensive  Angry

I payed $4 only for ship from China to Denmark, that can't be expensive. The seller is "flyingannalee" on ebay.

Oh my god these are so much cuter than Barbie! More realistic and not as trashily dressed, either. I've noticed that here lately Barbie is starting to look more like a hoochie mama.
I'll have to save money and get a couple of these! ♥
