great story so it seems that Sandra "Johnsie" Bryan who wrote the Cher & her Celebrity Friends book from years ago was right, she said in that book that these dolls should be kept in air conditioning.
I do hope science comes up with some easier solutions to degrading plastics.

on the surface this seems a grim proclamation for our aging toy collections.
but if you look a little deeper, it also breathes new hope. These people are looking for ways to halt, and even REVERSE that problem. And they're SPECIFICALLY focusing on toys to do it.
They seem dedicated to unlocking what we as collectors have dreamed about since we first realized these things were impermanent. The Philosopher's Stone, as it were.
