  • Fisher-Price made four different Jenny dolls, three of which were "My Friend Jenny" dolls. The first Jenny (#201) was not a My Friend Doll, although she is often confused as one. She has stuffed arms and legs, where as the three My Friend Jennys have plastic arms and legs, with a cloth stuffed body. #212, #217, and #209 are all the same, as far as we can determine, except the outfits they were sold in. Each doll should have a tag sewn into her back with the model number to determine which version she is. If her tag has been cut and she no longer has her original clothes, it may be impossible to determine which version she really is.
