Before going ahead and cleaning Sweet Steps, I thought about opening up her just to see how she actually is on the inside and how easily it may be to detach her mechanisms from her head... so I went ahead and opened her up. By seeing how easy it may be, I could decide to go ahead and make her into a full plushie and remove them.

For anyone who is interested in seeing how she looks or is looking to do something similar, here are some pictures for what to expect:

The mechanism on the bottom of her head is stitched inside the fabric that’s coming out of her body. I cut a little bit of the stitching at the top of the back of her neck and the rest of it just popped open but I had to keep pulling it apart. The head is attached to the body with a plastic zip tie. It would’ve been easier to remove the head if I just cut that first while I opened the back stitch.

The leg parts are also stitched to the body inside the hooves. I didn’t realise this when trying to pull it out so I had to cut the hooves open also and cut the fabric bag off. I know she has some magnets inside her back hooves too that are probably in fabric bags as well but they’d be easy to remove compared to this.

Some more pictures for a better look:

EDIT:
I managed to get off the head!

For anyone interested and doing the same, I hope you find an easier way.
Here’s how it happened:
I assumed the rusty bit at the front of her throat was a nail and kept using a screwdriver to kind of knock it out. When I loosened it enough, I switched to pliers to pull it. It turns out it’s some sort of flat top screw! :shock:
Afterwards, I switched back to the screwdriver and popped out the bottom. That was a lot easier after trying to just pull off from the back before I got out the screw
More pictures plus inside her head for those interested:

ANOTHER EDIT:
Sweet Steps has been put together again!

Wow this is great! I'm very happy to see that you could find a way to remove the head and her mechanisms. Her lil plastic arms attached to her head have me dying. Now that she's headless, I'd be interested to know how you end up cleaning her and putting her back together.

Also, imagine the customizing options once you remove a g3 so soft's head... reattach it to a dragon plushie or something :tongue:

I’ve taken out her stuffing because I needed to turn her inside out to stitch her legs up again and I’ll need to get the back stitched up as neat as possible. I think I’ll restuff her and add her head again. I liked my So Soft Tripsy Daisy (who I don’t have anymore) because she was just plushie and not robotic like.

I've taken out her stuffing and turned her inside out so I could stitch her legs back up. I still need to stitch her back again. I'll wash her skin then put her back together again! She'll need more stuffing than she used to have since her plastic parts took up some of the space. I like the full plush versions of these baby ponies better (I used to have Tripsy Daisy but she's no longer in my collection now) so I think I'll like her more when she's done. I wasn't too fond of her before

A cool but creepy thing to do with her head could be to put some lights inside her

Those lights go hot quickly and I wouldn't keep her like that. Too strange for me. Reminds me of a Glow 'n' Show pony
