I gave my MiMi implants

null null
I own both versions of the MiMi, I chose to purchase the II after my I became totally useless due to the bubbling problem. I didn’t think that the warranty applied to this, turns out it does, but I was already past the 1 year limit. If you can get a replacement, do that, might as well use the warranty! However, if your MiMi has become useless, you’re over the warranty limit and you just can’t stand to throw it out, this may be your answer.

I searched around for silicone repair kits, eventually finding my answer on some real doll forums. Sil-poxy is one option, but it’s expensive, you have to order it online and it usually cures in the tube after using it once. The cheaper option I found was GE Supreme Silicone, made for sealing kitchens and bathrooms. Even doll manufacturers and repairmen use it. It’s 100% silicone, but I tend to worry about things and still wouldn't put it on a toy I was using internally. The way this is being used, it is totally encased in an external use only toy.
The tube is huge, especially for the price ~$8, I found it was easier to put into a small, 6CC syringe, courtesy Tractor Supply Co. Because I didn't plan ahead, I had to make small slits on either side of the toy, then push the Luer lock nipple into the slits. A better option would be to buy hypodermic needles, also at TSC and inject the silicone through that. My MiMi required a little less than 3 syringes in all, around 18CCs. My MiMi’s skin was very stretched out, it’s likely that other bubbled MiMis would use less silicone.
It took mine around 3 days to cure, much longer than the advertised time on the tube because there was no air contact, and thus no humidity to cure it faster. I wanted to be sure that my MiMi did not have a flat side once curing was complete. It’s it great that MiMi’s charger will totally support her weight? I ran the cable over a table and let plug and MiMi hang there while the silicone cured.
Because the plastic inside of the MiMi is now connected to the silicone skin, vibrations travel very well through it again. My MiMi is now just as strong as it was when I bought it. MiMi is a little fatter now, but works wonderfully.

Things I would have done differently:
Bought hypodermic needles, even low gauge ones. I've been messing with piercing silicone using 16GA needles, hoping it would leave a hole, but it just seals right back up.
Taped off, or saran-wrapped MiMi before I started. I managed to get silicone on my hands and, similar to silicone lube on silicone toys, it bonded. Hopefully it will eventually go away like all my lube/toy mishaps have in the past.

I love a creative fix! Pictures, even just a final one would be very helpful. Thanks for sharing your idea, it's really neat! I am no chemist, though, so as to long term safety, I cannot attest.

Our tools
Our tools: 6CC syringe with Luer lock tip, GE Supreme Silicone, sharp knife

The incision
Incision is very messy because I didn't push silicone away from it like I should have, or use a hypodermic needle, like I really should have. Ugly shiny bits are where I should have taped off, but got silicone on the outside.

Comparison
Left: MiMi I (with implants)
Right: MiMi II (no implants)

Comparison
As you can see, MiMi I is longer than II, not because it was designed this way, but because the bubbling problem was so severe that the silicone skin got flabby.

Luer lock tip
This is the Luer lock tip, the small bit in the middle will fit inside of the slit in MiMi's skin. A Luer lock tip will also attach a Luer lock hypodermic needle. How handy is that?

If you guys need other pictures, please just ask!

Thanks for the post - my Mimi has also bubbled - I didn't know that it was a warranty issue - I'll have to look into that as a replacement. Thanks again!

Very creative! Question - can you still see the light on the side when it's charging, or do you just have to guess based on how long it's been plugged in?

The light still lights up just as brightly and clearly!

(These lights blink at different rates, multi-shot is my friend.)
