Barbie Skipper Babysitter Inc.

As part of my holiday shopping spree, I managed to get most of the Barbie Skipper Babysitter Inc. teen dolls and some of the babies too. I was excited to see that Skipper got some friends! As will the other playline dolls, these dolls come without joint articulation. 😢 However, other than that, I really like this line of dolls. Of course, I immediately found articulated bodies to put them on and am very happy with the results! Hanaly Corners will be blessed with a bevy of new teens!

Here is a photo with the group of dolls that I purchased already on their new bodies. Later, I will show some comparison shots against the original bodies.

From left to right: AA Babysitter on an AA Liv body; Blonde Babysitter on a 24cm Obitsu body; Hispanic Babysitter on a tan Momoko body, Caucasian Babysitter on a M Pure Neemo Body with Small Chest in Natural color; Boy Babysitter on an Alistair Ever After High body. All dolls have been redressed to some degree. Actually, only the Blonde Babysitter has her original dress on with MTM yoga pants.
As you can see, this gives the dolls varying heights -- which is the way it is in real life! I did a comparison of each of these bodies to it's original sized body. For the girl dolls, it is Skipper sized. I put an old Skipper head on one of the bodies. Here goes!

Here is the Hispanic Babysitter on the tan Momoko as compared to the original Skipper. As you can see, the Momoko body is only slightly taller than the Skipper body, so this is a very good body to use. She can wear Skipper's clothes and Skipper's boots.

Here is the Caucasian Babysitter on the M Pure Neemo body as compared to the original Skipper body. The Body is in the Natural Skin tone and is a pretty good match for this head. I really like this body! While she is a little shorter than she was on her original body, I still think this is a good choice for her and is age appropriate. She cannot wear the Skipper boots, is wearing shoes from Azone for Momoko and Ruruko.

Here is the Blonde Babysitter on the 24 CM Obitsu Body as compared to the Skipper on the original body. I really like this body! The skintone is Natural, but it is a little paler than the Pure Neemo natural. It is a near perfect match for the lighter skin tone of this girl! She is slightly shorter than the Pure Neemo body. Again, I think this body is totally age appropriate and keeps her in the same age range as she was originally supposed to be in.

Here is the AA Babysitter on an AA Liv body as compared to original Skipper. She is taller and a bit more mature looking, but this is OK. She will be a little older than the others, but will fit in with other dolls I have on Liv bodies in Hanaly Corners. She is wearing some shoes I found at the 2016 IT convention which were sold to fit Momoko, Poppy Parker and Ruruko.

I have a second AA Babysitter because I found the set with the baby included later. I changed her hair style a bit and put her on a Project MC2 Bryden Body. Because she had big high-heeled feet, she stands taller. I plan on cutting off those feet and giving her some jointed Barbie feet. This will bring her height down to be closer to Skipper's size and she will then be able to wear Skipper's boots. She can wear Skipper's clothes. She will be the taller AA Babysitter's younger sister.

Here is the Boy Babysitter on the Alistair Everafter High body as compared to Skipper. He cannot wear his original clothing, so he is wearing a Ken Fashionista outfit. He is the only one who has a name so far! His name is Sage. He is a handsome young man, don't you think?

I thought you might like to see his original body in comparison to the Slim Ken Fashionista body which is on the right. As you can see, these bodies are very similar in build with the Ken body being a bit taller and having a thicker neck. The original body can fit in the Slim Ken clothes.

Here you can see all three bodies together. I probably should have disrobed the Alistair body so you could have seen the body build comparison, but I didn't do that!



Here his is will the girls! He goes well with all of them! We need more young males!
 Well, I hope you all enjoyed that little review. Remember that these dolls were all purchased in 2017, so do NOT count toward my 2018 restrictions! My next post will be a update on the progress I have made on the doll room!

Thanks for stopping by.

  1. WOW! Really glad to see the rebodied dolls! It is always nice to know what you can do. Also see the original bodies is a big help! So how are the neck holes for reboding? I was thinking about straight arm Skipper body. I don't really like the bent arm thing. are the bigger or smaller than the old 1990 body?

    1. The body is the same height as the 1990 Skipper, but a different neck hole, but I've made it work in the past for the current body. These newer bodies are totally stiff in the arms and legs. You also may have some difficulty matching 1990 Skipper's skintone with these bodies skintone.

  2. Oh, the kids look great! Different heights, and different builds really give them life. Great job on the rebodying!

  3. I didn't know there was a male sitter. It's great you found a body for him. I just want the babies and the high chairs. I'm on the hunt for the babies.

    1. I did get some of the babies too. They are pretty cute, but come in only a diaper, but they fit Chrissy sized clothes. They are jointed at the shoulders and thighs too! I am on the lookout for the AA and Asian versions!

  5. Hi Phyllis!
    Thanks for sharing this. I've always wondered which bodies I can use for Skipper. Do any of the Ever After High bodies work for Skipper? :-)

    1. Yes, I have seen some people use the Ever After High bodies, but they are too skinny for my taste. I have used Disney Descendants, though and find that they are a better match as far as looking teenagerish!

  6. Is it just me or does the Blonde Babysitter strongly resemble the blonde BFC doll a few years ago - I think her name was Kaitlin? Interesting.

    Love your rebodies.

  8. Wow, what a change compared to the previous series. I still have my 1998 Cool Sitter Teen Skipper doll :) Great work with rebodies, they fit well.

    1. Yes, these dolls have changed a lot! Glad you like my rebodying effort.

  9. For some reason that boy is even cuter on your blog than he was when I saw him in store. I guess that's the power of persuasion. Great job on the rebodies! I'm always impressed by the number of articulated bodies you have on hand.

    1. Well of course, mine is cuter, tee hee! I think it's the articulated body that makes him better looking! I do have an impressive stock of articulated bodies on hand, but that is starting to dwindle. I have also been working on doing body mods to give dolls articulation by using joints and so on. I will be doing a future post on that soon.
