A packaging arrives for Ravi with a bell in it. The bell is said to have magic powers. When Jessie and Zuri are both holding the bell, it causes them to switch bodies. Then, Emma and Luke switch bodies, and, Ravi and Bertram switch bodies. The body switching results in many problems. Once Emma and Luke switch bodies, their problem is their different personalities.

Luke (in Emma's body), because she is acting extremely girly. When Ravi and Bertram switch bodies, Ravi gets freaked out. Bertram is obsessed with having hair and is scaring Ravi. During this episode, Zuri acts very childish and little kiddish. Jessie has trouble getting Zuri to listen to her, especially when Zuri is in Jessie's body. Plus, Jessie has her first big acting role while Zuri is in her body. In the end, everyone switches back and the kids destroy the bell. But, once they walk into the kitchen, they see that Mrs. Kipling and Jessie switched bodies, and they scream. It is then revealed that this was all Mrs. Kipling's imagination.
