Alternative body for Kenzie?

I just ordered a Kenzie this afternoon and the lady messaged me saying her mom wants one too. So back to order another (3 BB orders in 24 hours time :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye: ) Anyway is there an alternative to the bodies made for the crawling babies? they are currently out of stock.

Came across this the other day… She uses a Grant body… and talks about what is different and such…


Congrats on all the orders!

Looks like the Grant body may be a good alternative IF I can alter it so it holds the head up. I am so excited about painting these babies but nervous about the bodies. :worried:

Where are you ordering your body?

I think I have figured it out. I think I can just add a strip of elastic to the back of the Grant kit to draw it up some. I’ve got some random bodies here I will try it on first and see. Thanks for sharing the video, Jenni @jlesser.

The elastic in the back (in theory) would pull the head back so she is looking up more when crawling. The bodies made for her have elastic down the back.

:slight_smile: You can see in the picture where it needs altered


I wonder if you can scrunch it back a bit and stitch it to help it pull the head back?


Thanks for sharing my video, I used body #300, it appears to be out of stock, though. I plan to alter mine with strong stitching, I put Kenzie together without any weight in her head, her head is heavy. lollipop_cradle if you figure out what to do, please share. :slight_smile: I can’t find armature on BB’s site and at one time they did carry it. Armature is a wonderful idea, however, if you do use the Grant/Elliot/Easton Body, leaving it regular, you will have cloth body showing at the back of her neck, I would still add a tuck or tucks to pull it down.

Thanks y’all come over to my channel anytime.

Thanks for the video Catherine. It is really helpful. I’m rather nervous about trying to alter the body. I’ll let y’all know how it goes. I was disappointed that body #300 was out but I got the other one.


With the recommended body, her head is tilted up while in the sitting position. I am wondering about the armature though.

Keep the ideas and thoughts coming ladies. We’re gonna figure this thing out. :wink:

Sorry I should have researched your name to see if you were on here so I could properly tag you with the video.

Thank you for posting it.


It’s okay, I do these to try help to all of us. :wink: (thank you for sharing) <3


You can form a “tuck”, it’s going to take some strong thread/stitching to hold it, though if you plan to pose the kit in the crawling position.
