Her customizable-ness! I don't really collect dolls that I don't sew for, and Blythe is too tiny for my sewing skills, patience level and rickety sewing machine. (Maybe I will try again now that I have a new machine.)
Still, I cannot resist Blythe. I have a few Blythes in my doll collection: 3 "real" Blythes--Kenner (Thanks Sis!), an Ashton Drake and a Takara and 3 knock-offs-- 2 Basaaks and a Belle Girl (one Middie knock off as well).
|My Middie Clone, a poor clone in that her eyes do not change and she is as cheap as they get--plus she seems a little ..well...hoochie to me, I got her cheap in an Ebay lot with her redhead sister.|
My dolls all are wearing clothes by Ebay store Ninabella9 which make AMAZING Blythe clothes--super high quality and they always throw in freebies. They have awesome prices and fast shipping, even from Singapore. No one paid me to say that, or asked me to say that; I just find it is very rare to get such exceptional service and wanted to pass it on.
One of my new sources of doll inspiration is to search "Blythe" on Pinterest--I could live there :). Only give it a try if you have a few hours.
