How To Remove and Replace CED Doll Heads   The CED doll heads have a half round recess in the bottom to accept the round neck knob and a small hole for the movable pin that sticks out of the body's neck.  Ideally, to get the head on or off of the body you need to heat up and soften the half round neck hole area in the head.  It's not great to heat the entire head if you can help it since that might not be good for the face paint, eyelashes and rooted hair or wigs. To get the head on or off you really just need that half round recess to become soft and pliable enough to go over the cone shaped pin coming out of the neck on the body.  To remove a CED vinyl head:   Using a hair dryer, you want to concentrate the heat on the vinyl head, you don't want to melt the neck of the hard plastic body so I point the hair dryer under her chin, wrapping the rest of her head in a towel to protect it.  Don't start out with the hair dyer too hot, you could melt the head and body. Test it out and go slow. As it softens, slowly tip the head back so you can really get the hot air to heat up that half round recess in the head, that's the area you want to soften. Slowly tilt and pull the head as that area softens and eventually it will get hot and soft enough so it pops off. If you want to save the head, gently make sure the half round recess goes back into the proper shape as it cools. To replace the vinyl CED head on a body:   I use a towel with a hole about the size of a quarter in the middle.  To protect the head I put the towel with the hole in it over the bottom of the head so only the half round recess and hole show through the hole in the towel.  Then, using the hair dryer, you can safely heat up the half round recess area in the bottom of the head without damaging paint, hair or eyelashes (you still have to be careful of those things).  Heat up the neck area and try gently pushing it onto the neck knob. If it doesn't want to go, go back to heating it up some more until it does. O nce the neck hole is heated you put the towel aside and push the head on the neck knob. The towel is just  there to protect the hair etc. while you’re heating it. One final thing, once the head is on make sure that it's positioned nice and straight and forward as it cools. Once it's cooled you have a doll with a beautiful new head!
