Oh, to have the life of a doll! Sure, they are plastic, inanimate, and only capable of a couple of expressions, but then so are a lot of people I've met.
I actually didn't like original Blythe dolls back in the 1970's. I thought they were ugly and scary with their weird changing eyes and dark circles. However, if I would have bought a couple of them back then I would have enough money today to go on a trip to Europe. Yep, Blythe's are worth thousands of dollars because they are so scarce. Apparently, alot of other children didn't like them, either.
Anyway, I love today's Petite Blythe...much cuter and more approachable!
