I have been photographing my collection again! Many of my favorite figures are vintage ones that do not have open hands. So without the opposable thumb, how are they able to hold items?
How is Herb Wildwood holding that trumpet to his mouth?
Many vintage sets such as the child’s painting set and some of the musical instruments have a place where a small rubberband used to be. Since many of these items are well over 30 years old, those original rubber bands have disintegrated. Rubber bands from food items and stationery stores are just too big.
So where can you find these small rubber bands?

Make sure you take the bands off your figure and off the accessories. They will leave a dent in your figure’s flocking if left on too long and sometimes can create changes in the plastic of your accessories if left in storage for a long time.
