  1. I’m thinking this is the doll that every single doll has slightly crossed eyes? If so, I searched shelves so long for one with good eyes, but never found one. I did really like the doll, escept for the eyes, and did buy one, just to have it, but they lost a lot of selling to repeat buyers because they didn’t work out the eye problem. I looked up some pics on a search and those dolls appear to look better. Maybe they fixed it afterall, or maybe all the ones with crossed eyes were sent to MY store! Seems like I remember getting a set of wigs for her.

    1. You’re right! The Liv Doll line was discontinued because one of the earliest runs of these dolls came out with crossed eyes. Later distributions of the Liv Dolls didn’t have the same problem, by at that point, they had lost momentum.

      Before there was Made-to-Move Barbie, though, this was one of the most articulated of all the dolls available. That’s what I like about them.

      Articulation makes a doll particularly useful for stop motion videos, like the intro portion of many of my sewing tutorial videos, in which my “Chelly Doll” (a Spin Master Liv Doll) sews fabric on a miniature sewing machine.
