There were several variations in Ginny's body throughout the many decades she has been in production.  The above is a good representation of her variety. 
It is meant as a quick reference and to help the novice collector visualize the terms used to describe Ginnys and to assist in dating the age of their dolls.  

# - The Tonka Ginny's had a tendency to have one leg noticeably longer than the other. Hair rather sparce.
## - Lesney's restyled "Skinny Ginny" body is also used on the Sassoon Ginny and International Brides
### - Dakin started out using the Meritus mold.  They also used both soft vinyl and hard vinyl simultaneously.
