Jointed hands

Some companies offer fully articulated jointed hands in a variety of skin tones, which can also be used on dolls of other companies. Below is a list of all companies offering jointed hands as of February 2013.


Jointed hands are strung with individual elastic loops for each finger, looping around a hook in the wrist ball-joint. Restringing can be tricky due to the small elastic tunnels which generally take 3-5mm elastic. Some owners have used jewelry wire inside each finger for extra pose-ability. Due to the little parts they consist of, jointed hands can be tricky to blush or give manicures, but they can add a great deal of realism and expression of your doll.

Hybrids & resin matches

Many jointed hands can be used on other dolls, but might sometimes not fit properly, look out of proportion or simply not match very well. Resin matched for different companies offering jointed hands can be checked through the 'regular' resin comparison threads. A great thread offering information of both resin match and fit can be found here.
