As each Caroler
becomes a member of your family, it is important to follow a little bit of “preventative medicine” in order to keep them all healthy.
Below are a few handy tips to avoid those scrapes and spills that may injure them.
Carolers rarely wear bathing suits. As a result, they really don't like to get wet. If a Caroler gets wet or is kept in a very humid area, it is possible for metal parts to rust or mold to grow on some fabrics. It is best to store your Carolers in dry places, but if one happens to get wet, try drying it off with a paper towel and a hair dryer.
Pets have been known to become jealous about new Carolers being brought into the family. It is best to find a home for your Caroler that is out of reach of these potential mischief makers.
Sunblock wasn't available in Dickensian England, and prolonged exposure to the sun was bad. That is still a risk today. Too much sun will cause Carolers to lose their color, both in their faces and their clothes.
Beware of mice! They love to use felt and tissue paper to build nests. Store your Carolers in a secure box to help keep pests away.
Note: avoid storing in cedar, as it can dissolve the paint on a face.
