PostSubject: Problems with Papo Marabou and Flamingo   Sat Dec 16, 2017 11:12 am

Last year I've got the Papo Marabou Stork and the Greater Flamingo. But until now they are bending. So they cannot stand by their own anymore. I tried to fix them two times with the boiled and cold water method, but they started again. Have you an idea what I can do now?

Greetings from Germany

I know that problem a lot of years. It started for me with VEP Plaho. Never find a idea against that

Yes, the Marabou body is too heavy for the base and the legs.

Ok. I thought only my Marabou would be such a trouble maker... These two are my worst Papos, because of the fact, that they cannot stand by themself. Sad

My marabou and my flamingo have the same problem.. Sad

After many attempts, I managed to fix the marabou.

I agree with Andreas, is one problem for many years ago.

Many animals , made in China had this problem in legs, but really these figures were not expensive.

Now we see this problem in animals of famous brands that are very expensive. Evil or Very Mad

I think, that Papo should say us how solve this problem.

I fixed the Marabou's base by putting some self hardening clay underneath it until it was stable again.
The next day I painted the clay the same colour as the base.

It would fall of the shelf every now and then and always in the middle of the night.
After 3 almost heart attacks, I'm sleeping like a baby again. Heheh.
