I've had my Whatnot since this past Valentine's Day; my sweetie ordered it from FAO.com for me. So that makes it, what, eight months of occasional use? It's not often I do anything with it, because it's a very tight fit for an average-sized adult hand. Well, tonight I was using it as my Halloween costume, greeting kids with it ... and suddenly the plastic mouth joint snapped! Let me explain - to give the mouth some rigidity, inside the puppet is a curved piece of plastic making the upper and lower inside of the mouth. The "hinge" is simply where the plastic is bent. The mouth is normally somewhat open; it usually tires out my hand after a few minutes of squeezing the mouth closed and open again. That's the piece that broke! Inside the muppet there was a *snap* and I can feel the edges of the plastic where the plastic was bent... and it's more of a fracture than a clean break. The *good* thing is that now it's easier to open/close its mouth; the bad thing is that now the upper and lower plastic pieces make snapping noises when I open/close the mouth, as if the pieces are being bowed and then snapping back to their original shapes! I am really, really disappointed by this. I wouldn't mind trying to fix it myself, except that I really don't know how I could possibly get in there to replace the plastic mouth piece. I am really hoping that FAO has a warranty on these puppets and that they can do something for me - but I would hate to have to send this one back to them and get another one! Has anyone else had the mouth piece on your Whatnot break?
