The Circle of Love

When I started out collecting the strange little bigheaded dolls named "Blythe" last year, little did I know what I was getting into. I thought I would just try one and made sure to find one that was not very popular, hence quite affordable and well ... let's put it this way ... hopefully the least damaging to my wallet in case I did not take fondly to her.

The package arrived, I tore it open and then I gasped at the size of that head. My better half almost jumped when I displayed her in the hopes of getting some reassurance and approval. She did not fit in anywhere in my collection which was then full of glamrous supermodels with perfectly proportioned bodies. So she sat on my study desk and simply stared.
And then that shy, lonely thing grew on me. Before long I was buffing her up, buying her clothes, painting her lips and playing with her. It was almost like I was revisiting my childhood. Now, my Blythe family has grown. So has my circle of friends, online and in real life, all through the one common thread ... the love for our Blythes.


Oh yes, Blythe has grown quite a following in our forum as well. You should definitely check out all the fabulous girls and their proud parents.

And finally, if you have not tried adopting a Blythe yet, I ask you to give it a shot. Who knows, maybe she will change your life in unexpected ways, just like she did mine.

Very enticing ... I don't own a Blythe yet, but your blog entry is definitely encouraging to adopt one. :)
