I purchased a collector ed. Middleton doll named Pansy from Shopatron on 1216/12. It arrived with a noxious fume coming from it as soon as we opened the box. I decided to wash the clothes, shoes, socks, hair, face, arms, and legs. The odor is still coming out. Shopatron referred my concerns to the manufacturer from which it was shipped. I haven’t heard anything further, but do not want to expose my daughter and grandchildren to dangerous fume in my home. Could you please help me in determining the risks?

Thanks for your question. We may have a more refined answer to your question in the future, but for now please seal the doll in a double plastic bag and put it in a room that is not frequented by children, such as a garage. When the results of the manufacturer are given to you, please send them to us to review.
