Hi everyone, Ive decided to start a list database of dolls known to have glue seepage or bad frizzy hair issues to help us when we want to buy a certain doll.
these are all the dolls I own that have issues so far, please contribute if you like as well.
BTW if the doll is from China, please specify, as Im curious if its true that the dolls with problems are only from Indonesia. If you dont have the box it will say where the doll is from on the back of their torsos.
MODS: please dont remove this thread! its only meant to help us when we buy our dolls, thanks!

Actually, School's out Lagoona has a glue free version made in China and a glue head version made in Indonesia.
I was wondering if anybody else has a leaking first wave Lagoona?
Also, i am curious if anybody has any leaking reboot dolls.
They also have glue free versions and glue head versions of the same doll, and they do this with the dolls made in China.
I can add to the list dolls made in China available with a glue head and glue free version:
Dead tired and Dot Dead Gorgeous Spectra (yes, I know it's crazy!)
All the Shrieck Wrecked dolls made in China have a glue free version and a glue head version
Schools out, some dolls are made in Indonesia
Freak Du Chic Clawdeen and Gloom and Bloom Cleo and Jinafire exist in both version too. I have 2 Clawdeens (I love that Clawdeen, so spectacular!) and one has a glue head. How awful!
Sorry, all the Dead Tired Spectra I have squeezed the heads had no glue. Dot Dead Gorgeous has 2 versions, with and without. And Signature Spectra has one version made in Indonesia with glue.
EVER AFTER HIGH DOLLS
I have to mention the terrible seepage of EAH dolls. My first wave Madeline is leaking badly. When I lift her hair, I am horrified. I don't want to destroy the curls so I left her like that...for now. It puts me off buying EAH even second hand if they have a hard head. Luckily, I don't have many of them and it will probably stay that way. If they have a hard head, I will not buy them in car boot sales.
EAH dolls glue free:
Signature first release Lizzie
Faybelle (I am happy these 3 are glue free, they are some of my favourites!)
Getting fairest raven exists without glue, I have one.
Way to Wonderland kitty has glue free and glue heads versions too. She is still in box but I squeezed her head when I bought her (lol) I will definitely check her to make sure.
thanks Tula Shadowy!
UPDATE 2019 (glue leak)
Day at the Maul Draculaura (Indonesia)
Catty Noir 13 wishes
Cleo dawn of the dance
Frankie Sweet 1600 (so bad leek)
2015 Re-release of Gloom Beach Frankie
Art Class Skelita
Catty Noir New Scaremester
from Tula Shadowy
All the bloody original Gloom Beach line (Ghoulia is only leaking mildly. It is s a sort of miracle, I hope it will last.)
And Signature Nefera to add to the list too. Most of the original dolls made in Indonesia do leak (original Ghoulia has 2 versions, one made in Indonesia and one made in China. The doll made in China has no sign of glue seepage. Same for Spectra made in China).
EVER AFTER HIGH
Raven Queen and Briar beauty Legacy Day
I tend to worry about chemicals more than ever now, because I just learned that my 1979 Nyamy kitten toy contains IRON POWDER, which EXPLODES if there's a freaking FIRE! NOOO!
