In 1970, Mattel introduced a new kind of body for Skipper - a body with movable joints. Her head mold stayed the same, but now she had a different hairstyle with two pigtails. The hair fibre used for these dolls was different from the fibres used before, it is stronger and looks more synthethic. She was available in strawberry blonde (more common) and a rare pale blonde.

This doll was called #1147 Living Skipper, and came with a clear plastic stand, a blue, pink and green swimsuit, and booklet and was sold in a trade-in box. People could trade her in for 1.99 US $ and a used Barbie doll.
