A new body for Olive....again!

Olive, my little Jerry Berry Sleepy Berry, received her new body yesterday from the company that created her.  Jerry Berry dolls previously always came with a plastic multi jointed Obitsu body, which was a great body for posing but it was, well it was very plastic-y and in my experience it quickly became floppy.





So when Jerry Berry announced last Autumn that they would be producing a replacement resin body I jumped in with my order!

The new body has it's limitations when it comes to some posing positions, for example it has a solid torso rather than the three part one that the Obitsu body has, but I still think I prefer it so far.  I don't actually expect my dolls to perform acrobatics so am sure I'll be happy with this new body, which for me is more aesthetically pleasing.

Here is a phot courtesy of the Jerry Berry company:



Just a few photos of Olive taken today.  You can't really see the body but I thought I'd share them all the same.






Jerry Berry are such a nice company to order from, they mark parcels down and are very very helpful.  They even included the little 'Strawberry' headband for Olive to wear and it goes perfectly with her outfit!

Well we've almost reached the end of another week and I can hardly believe that we're at the end of January already!  I hope you all have a great weekend!

  1. The new body really suits her! I almost said she looks happy with it, but with that downturned face it wouldn't be quite the right expression, would it? ;) Cute either way (and I love those boots you have on her!).

    Have a great weekend!

    1. Thanks JS, erm happy? No, not Olive! She is miserable no matter what you do for her!!! Maybe I should have left her with her old body and got her a new 'happy head' instead! ;)

  2. Your little Olive is such a little cutie and I agree with you, a resin body is much better than the Obitsu one even with the one piece body and probably less prone to breakage too. Love the way you have dressed her. :)

    1. Poor girl is indeed tired Anne, she suffered from night cramps in her new joints so was unable to sleep well ;)

    1. Thank you Dee, and yes, they're great. I asked them to mark down and send as a gift which they kindly did, and they also included a little gift of her hair band. Very nice people :)

  6. She is a real sweetie and I think the more child-like body suits her personality. Trying haed not to type Jerry Berry into a search engine. Really, Sharon! You are such a bad influence!!

  8. PS. Please can you try to find a NEW BODY for ME... though preferably one with the extra joints to allow more movement.
    I wouldn't mind some new customised eyes, a plumper face and fresher skin tone too whilst you're at it!
    Perhaps a little hair re-rooting would help too.
    Can easily come and stay with you for a few days whilst the treatments are carried out.
    Thanking you in anticipation of a speedy reply.

    1. Oh wouldn't that be great if it were so simple Kendal! I would order one for myself that was nice and slim with long legs and could eat anything without worrying about putting on an ounce of wait. And certainly I would send you one too ;)
      LOL any particular skin tone? I would like a nice golden tan without any risk to health and not have to sit around for hours waiting for it to go that colour, oh and leaving out the red bit too! And the sunburn.
      Perfect!!!

  10. Hi Sharon, I've been waiting for the site to sell these bodies for ages. I found your pics and wondered if you thought they were a good idea and how pleased you are. Hope you're having a lovely Spring there. Hugs Valli

    1. Hi Valli, I'm sorry that I've not replied before, but completely missed your comment.
      I like the look of the new body but it has it's limitations compared to the very flexible Obitsu one.
      But I had a lot of problems with my original body so for me this is definitely an improvement in quality.
