Default Hanging dolls from rails.

I have got three dolls hanging from one wardrobe rail, the dolls are all different heights 165,157, and 155. The rail is set so that tallest dolls feet just touch the base of the wardrobe, taking a little pressure off the neck joint. The two other doll hang without any feet supported.

Is it better putting something under the smaller dolls feet so it reduces the pressure on the neck?

Or is ok for them to be hanging freely, like you see them in the factory?

Tommo

Depends on the doll and the design of the skeleton.

It's not recommend for dolls with a 'goose-neck'.

If in doubt use an adjustable cam strap to attatch the eye bolt in the smaller doll to the hanging rail, so that both dolls feet are on the floor.

Nice one. I'll try the load restraining straps. What a great idea.
Thanks Tommo

Any problems with the rail coming adrift?

Hi,
These are Psions photos, such a great idea which I have since followed, I upgraded the rail in the wardrobe to a screwfix wardrobe rails they are quite cheap, and they don't come adrift. They are very sturdy.
Regards
Tommo

This seems like a really practical way to store dolls but for me, it just looks a bit serial killer-ish. I'd be worried about damaging the dolls too.

I have an ottoman style bed with storage underneath. The matress sits on a slat base with gas struts so you can lift up the whole thing and get to the storage area underneath. Its big enough to store two dolls in their boxes but I'm thinking about getting some memory foam to line the bottom so the dolls can lie down outside of the boxes when not in use.

Only problem is, I now have 3 dolls and it's probably just a matter of time till I add another one... They will need their own room(s) before long.
