Assembly: First, you want to stuff the head very firmly. However, before you close up the body portion, don't firmly stuff the body. You want to keep it a little squishy so it can sit and it has that cute look to it and is able to sit! Begin attaching the arms to the sides, lightly stuffed. After, attach the legs that will also be lightly stuffed. You can either attach them straight forward or have them slightly going to the side. With those limbs attached, you can now attach the screws to the side of his head! All that’s left now is to embroider his smile on, his scar on the side of his face, and black lines coming from his hair so it matches frankenstein's normal hair rather than looking like a bowl cut! You don’t have to assemble in this particular order, but this how I find it easiest :)
