That's riiight-o!

It's gross, but I need to know about the insides of the ponies.

Basically those with a mechanism inside!

(B'n'G, Twisty Tail, Happy Tail, Peek-a-Boo, Drink'n'Wet..... forgot any? LIST THEM HERE!)

Which of those have metal parts inside them that could rust!? (except for the tail ring)

Do you have pictures you can show me?

How do you remove the mechanism should you need to? ..or get the head off in the first place! Scared

I know the Happy Tails have metal parts inside, since I just have opened up a Tabby.. and well.. she's rusting. How do I get the stuff out? Depressed

And how to I be-head a B'n'G?

Any advice is greatly appreciated! Happy Pony

Generally if you de-head a BNG you break a little plastic tip and that means you can't get the head back on. I haven't sucessfully reattached a BNG head yet Sad
They have 2-3 tiny metal spring like pieces but the rest is plastic and the metal pieces are far away from the hair to cause any problem with rust. I've also not seen any rust on them and I've deheaded 6ish baits recently. I'll have to get you pics tomorrow Smile

Thanks Chrissytree!!

Oh, it would be sooo great if they would not rust, since I had to dunk and submerge 2 of my B'n'Gs in Oxy overnight recently, because they had a REAL moldy smell. Scared

I've submerged B'n'Gs thoughtlessly after I had just started collecting, and they don't show any sings of rust yet either.. but yeah.. better safe than sorry! ;D

I always have them sit on a towel on a hot radiator bum down for several days in hope that they fully dry.. but.. well.. it would be nice to know how they're constructed inside. :3

Should they rust I'd even be ok with glueing the head back on, having a long tail all the time and no working mechanism I guess..

I recently opened a Twisty Tail. I can make a picture later this day when I come back from work...
It looks rather awful and un-removable to me, and it also has metal parts.

Lina: Oh no.. I submerged to twisty tails in bleach overnight because they were as moldy as they could get. Scared
No rust yet however.. at least on the OUTSIDE. Depressed

Maybe I have to take a hammer to destroy the mechanism inside? Drunk

BlackCurtains: That's great info! Thanks! Esp. on the B'n'Gs! Happy

Does this mean you can't just glue BnG's heads back on?
