I had a Jody doll, got her for Christmas circa 1975. I liked her more than Barbie since she was a "normal" girl. I had Jody until Junior High School when all my dolls went missing.

I had Jody doll with Country Store.It was really cute with all the country store items. I played with it all the time. I liked this doll better than Barbie.

Yay Jody! I remember getting Jody room playsets one year for Christmas. There was a Victorian parlor with a "velvet" settee, a victrola & a tea set; a country kitchen with a black pot belly stove & an "oak" kitchen table & chairs; a general store with all kinds of old-timey food packages & a barrel with a checkers game on it. I think there was a schoolroom & a farm too that came with a little beige horse. I loved Jody because she reminded me of Laura from "Little House on the Prairie".

I will be putting up on Ebay my old Jody and her General Store. Missing only a couple of things like the coal; Rocking Chair seat (legs are included); the box of soap powder; the 2 spoons, 2 knifes, 2 forks; and the 2 candy jars with real candy. Hope the picture helps with the info here.

Also of note, is the fact that the plastic used was very very cheap plastic. It melts at low temperatures, or I should say it sticks to the other pieces of plastic. perhaps it is because it is old, I do not know. But very fragile I would say.

I LOVED my Jody doll and the Country Kitchen Set. I lost it sometime around 1978, when my family moved to another home. That was one of the best Christmas presents that I can remember. Jody and her kitchen along with paper dolls with magnets that held the clothes on....WOW. ((((smile))))

I have been looking all over the interent for this doll! I never new the original name b/c it was a hand-me-down toy. It was a great toy.

I had Jody and her Country Kitchen growing up. It was one of my favorite toys. I lost the kitchen somewhere in the shuffle of childhood. I just found the doll on ebay and won her in auction. She is in Mint condition and completely displayable. Nice Memory!

I had the Jodi doll & her general store.I LOVED her & spent hours playing with her. The store was so absolutely cute ! It had a pot-bellied stove with "real" pieces of "coal" that were made of plastic.There were also candy dishes that cam e with some very small squares of real candy. There were scoops for the candy dishes. There were plastic barrels..a checker board, a rocking chair, and I think a cash register. Jodi herself was beautifully detailed with floor-length long auburn/red hair and an old fashioned victorian style dress with a high collar, and even high-top shoes.. I think she had a hat,too. I would so love to see one of these again. I got mine in the 70's as a Christmas gift. I lost her when , after I married at 17, my now ex-husband forced me to sell her in a yard sale !!!

I remember the commercial for Jody fondly; I always kind of liked the jingle. I wish it would turn up on YouTube...

I was a Sunshine Doll fan but I collected the Jody playsets because like the Sunshines, Jody was exactly the same size. My Sunshines had a piano, and a cool kitchen. Sweet memories.
Jimmy - August 10, 2009 - Report this comment
I too Jake loved the Sunshines and they got to benefit with Jody's playsets! Jody's furniture was cooler, and my Sunshine and Happy family lived in those sets. My Happy Grandma ran the country store, and the Sunshine grandparents lived in the Parlor... it was too cool! I loved Sunshines more than my big Jims and GI joes

Hey guys! Did you know that Jody's clothes looked absolutely FAB on Stephie and the all the Sunshine doll ladies? Sunshine doll collectors are huge and apparently they collect Jody stuff for the same reasons.. not too many 9 inch doll stuff out there! Barbie was a giant compared to them! IDEAL and Mattel should bring them back! Bratz ho dolls just don't measure up!
Roger - August 10, 2009 - Report this comment
I loved these dolls too! The Jody playsets were amazing... there is a collector group on yahoo groups for Jodys and Sunshine family collectors! check it out! Lot of men loving these dolls too.. no surprise! They were very cool and boy friendly too!

About 2 years ago, I was describing the Jody doll to my friend, lamenting the fact she was my favorite doll and I couldn't even remember her name. Lo and behold, the next day my friend brought her in!! She had a bag of old toys that was headed for the trash, and she remembered that Jody was in there! So once again, I have my very own Jody doll.

I was just talking about this doll to a friend today. I had Jody and her Kitchen...I remember all the tiny pieces and it took me longer to set it all up to how I wanted it, then it took me to play with her. I am not sure what happened to her after I grew up, but it was nice going down memory lane.

i just googled it for the heck of things haha. i had jodi and her country store, remember it like it was yesterday, i dont remember what happened to it i guess it was in the early 70s. wonder where icould find one
marly - September 10, 2009 - Report this comment
I remember the day I got her at Toys R' Us. They had two versions, a redhead and a black one. I guess they were capitalizing on the Little House on the Prairie craze. She had a beautiful face and I remember her wearing a tan dress and black booties. I wish I had kept my doll collection instead of giving it to people who didn't value it.

You can find them on ebay... I got one in great clothes for 15.99! They are superb! I want the barn really bad... I wish they would bring Jody back.. and the Sunshine family too!

I Love Jody. I was at a flee market this past summer and found Jody in mint condition, with that long red hair. What ever happened to her, she was so pretty and cool

I use to have 2 Jody Country Girl Doll along with a house and a country store, she was much more fun than that barbi doll, because she was normal and not so much of a show off. I wish I still had them, they would of been worth some money, but my little brother and his friends placed my dolls on fire along with the house and country store, because I misplaced my brothers football.

My younger sister and I loved Jody and her Country store. She was lucky enough to have a friend recently find the Jody doll and gave it to her. I am still looking for the country store. I had hours of fun playing in the country store. If any one knows of one still hanging around somewhere....

Monica - September 15, 2010 - Report this comment
I love Jody and I think I had the Country Kitchen. She was the only Barbie type doll/acessory that had a pet cat and I was crazy about it. My Mom would cut me little fabric ovals to be "throw rugs" in the kitchen and I always had that brown cat sleeping on one!!! Such great memories.

Oh I LOVED,LOVED,LOVED my Jody playsets! I think I had them all, Parlor, store,kitchen,barn and school! I spent hours and hours playing with them! I just wonder where they are. I know my kitchen stuff ended up in my dollhouse, the other stuff is probably in a box somewhere. What great memories! If only they would bring them back! Those and Johnny and Jane West!

I was just searching to find out if Jody and her playsets had any value or if anyone remembered them. I was going to donate my parlor and kitchen, then I thought I had better see if they're worth something. But after reading all of your comments I don't think I can part with them because they truly are WONDERFUL toys!

I liked jody and her accessories i just wish she had a man and some friends to share the store and other things with. in other words, she needs friends like barbie had, so she would not be by her self.
