  1. I just recently purchased a Pullip doll Naomi for my daughter and the doll’s hands fell off. They came off so easily I thought they might be interchangable. Do you know where i might be able to get replacement hands for this doll. I didn’t see in your website any mention of hands. Please let me know what you think.
