Online Liv Reference

Many of us are worried that our new favorite body donor, the Liv series, might be discontinued. Well, I have nothing to contribute to that anxiety now. But I have found a website FULL of Liv photos of the dolls and their accessories from their beginning to late 2011. It is called ShopLivDolls, and I confess to have browsed almost the way I used to pore over the Sears Christmas catalogs of my youth. Sigh. Lots of "I wants" as I looked.

The only sticking point is some of the prices. Daniela with her drum set for $49.99? I breathed a sigh of relief that I got mine on sale for less than HALF that amount. But the collector's heart knows what he or she is willing to pay. And I appreciate what the website creator - Lisa? - has done in pulling together this information about this series that has added additional fun to other doll lines.

Let the browsing begin!

Thanks for posting this link to the Liv Dolls. It's a great reference!

I think the LIV body collectors can breathe a sigh of relief. I was just in Target today and two new LIV lines have surfaced. Both have the completely articulated bodies. The sleep doll line even has eyes that close. She can also throw a pillow, but it didn't look like it interfered with the body. The button to push was flush with the body. Nothing big and protruding like with some other companies. Thanks for the link.

Thanks for viewing, Frannie and Vanessa! Thanks for the reassurance about the Liv line, Vanessa.

LIV people make the best stuff. I wish I had like... everything they've ever made. Sigh.

I didn't hear about this rumor! OMG I hope it's not true.

Hi Ada. The rumor probably has a limited run; I don't recall where I read it. Someone had asked about them or reported seeing fewer of them. The Liv section in some Philly Walmart stores has been cleared out. Possibly that's just good sales and NOT yet updated sales racks.

Nice info!

Glad you find it useful, Ms. Leo!

I got the news directly from the company PR rep that the line is officially discontinued. Sorry to say but the Sleep Over line and the Liv Brites are the last of them.

That is sad news, Lisa. Thanks for sharing it though. Guess we will have to get as many of them as possible.
