Child toymaker II

Thousands of children worked and were abused in this way for years, with no chances of escape or of bettering themselves. A sorry reminder that suffering continues even through the 'season of goodwill'.
Take these bands off.
Yes, that’s right. Take the bands off now and then lift the molds straight up.
OK. (That's it.)Oh, that's not bad, is it? So what do I do? Just ease it out.
Gently ease it out of the mold, Mack.
Ok.
Excellent.
Oh, my first little doll.(lovely) It's just, does look a bit like an alien, doesn't it? What will we have to do next?
Well, all that excess of wax has to be trimmed off with this scalpel(Yes.). And the eyes have to be set.(Yes. How are we gonna do that?) Put inside. But We need to cut the top of the head first.
Oh you are kidding!
Yeah, brain surgery, you know?.
I find it just amazing and she has got a lobotomy already. Oh, that is very unpleasant. Why do you do that?

That's so the eyes can be set from the inside of the head.
That's so
We need to warm the two off.
The eyes are set in the featureless face, then comes the most painstaking part of this worst job. Rooting hairs one by one into the doll's head is ideally suited to the tiny fingers of children.
Gentle, slightly(yes.yes.), that way. Just press it into the wax, just a few hairs at a time.
What would the hair've been made of?
They used to use human hair mostly on the heads. But it could be diseased hair because it won't sterilize as it does today. So it could be from a dead child that died of something awful. Then they would be working with this hair on the doll.

What's worse is that the horse‘s hair they used to stuff the bodies, carried tuberculosis. It is really fiddly, isn't it?
Yeah, very straining. You must've been doing that on the whole head for hours and hours at a time.
It'd strain your eyes, wouldn't it?
It would really. I am working on that... on many kinds of costumes...Each one of those holes is actually stitch-drained. And there'd be yards, yards and yards of the fabric on that and this to make the clothes. And each…each little bit be stitched by hand and the …the lighting would be even more of a strain on their eyes.
So in the spirit of worst jobs, we put out our filming lights. Oh that is ridiculous! I can't see anything at all. What would have happened if they've melted one up?
They just have to be scrapped. They wouldn't be accepted by the toy shops if they weren't up to the standard . So they wouldn’t get any money at all then (poor things). It'll draw the long work hours worse.
Presumably this was the worst part of the job.
Not really. Here it gets see the even worse. With the paint and coloring then you got the lead in the paint so if you go up licking the brush to get nice fine point poised to be full of lead paint , then there was the arsenic in the coloring as well...
God!
And at the end of the day, these poor little kids wouldn't have earned enough money to have a doll of their own.
No way. No. They would be lucky to even get a Christmas dinner.
