Liv [Bodies] for Jenny

Do you have any Takara Jenny dolls who look as though they could use a more active body? Look no further than the SpinMaster Liv bodies for an excellent substitute. My Calendar Girl, July Schoolgirl Tamaki, has been transferred over to a Katie body.

At first, I had not thought that the complexions would match because Tamaki has a pale, fair complexion. Katie seems to have a pinker coloring. But the head and body fit well.



As you can see from this photo, both dolls have similar neck "trakes" - those nobby things attached to the top of the doll neck that gets covered by the doll head.

Tamaki is so happy with her new body - she is head over heels about it.

I've done this with a couple of Jenny & friends I have. I got tired of their regular bodies. So glad there are LIV dolls for the moment.

Thanks D7ana! There is a person in my doll club that loves her Takara's and articulation. I will pass on this info to her.

There can never be enough information about rebodying, so thanks for this handy info. Your girl looks playful and as cute as a button, by the way – she’s obviously very happy with her new body.

Hello from Spain: thank you for showing that body. It really is perfect. A very creative photo. Keep in touch

Hi Muff, Dollz4Moi, GeorgiaGirl, and Roville! While some Jenny dolls do have poser bodies - those with Super Jenny Action bodies - many more do not. So I thought, let me see how the Takara Jenny heads would do on Liv bodies. I have liked this Tamaki for years, but it's only since I rebodied her that I see the bubbly vivaciousness of her.

Hi and thanks, Marta! I appreciate the compliment. Tamaki does, too.

Tamaki is so cute with her new body! I do have one Jenny that could use a new body. Maybe I'll make my way to the thrift store this weekend...

Hi Roxanne!

Tamaki is blushing - so many compliments. But she is very happy to be able to dance and to move. Your Jenny would probably be as thrilled. Now, I would be the last person to push anyone toward a thrift store - or other source for a "new" Liv body -

ZZzzzzzz ... this comment response has been interrupted by a lightening bolt. It seems that the responder was telling a whopper of a lie and got zapped. lol

Good luck!
