I just ordered a set of 4 Christmas cards featuring Blythe dolls on etsy. They are so adorable!
I have a thing for cute dolls. I am not the only grown up woman who does. First manufactured in 1972 by Kenner, Blythe became popular again when in late 2000 CWC produced a charming TV commercial for Parco department store starring Blythe. She became an overnight sensation in Japan and Asia.
New Blythe dolls are produced now. They are hard to find outside Japan (or Asia). My husband and I are planning a vacation in Japan next Spring. I will now be able to buy a few dolls.
Several etsy sellers create clothes on top of the traditional sources. Moshi-moshi by hilarywagstaff – the one who sold me the cards – has the best clothing collection that I found so far on etsy.
If you wish to see more great dolls, there are several Blythe doll pools on Flickr. This is a doll to play dress up. Fans do settings, style the space and take fashionable pictures. Amloro16 is a huge fan. I contacted her last year about it. I am inspired by this French collector passion for her Blythe dolls. It seems so much fun.
