Blythe is sometimes difficult to explain to others why we’re so interested in these big-headed dolls. Some people find the whole changing-eyes thing creepy or that the pink chips even look evil. But we’re all pretty lucky because we can afford to buy our own dolls and buy or make clothes for them.

If you’re at all crafty, you might be interested in The Toy Society. The Toy Society started in Australia in the year 2008 and now happens all over the world.

The whole idea is that you express your interest in doing a “Toy Drop”. You make a small toy and you make sure it’s in a rain-proof bag with a tag saying that it’s a free toy along with a toy number and the address to The Toy Society website. While not all of the finders of the Toy Drops email into The Toy Society about finding the toys, a lot of them do and they also include photos of the toy with the new owner.

If you’re interested in doing a random act of kindness for someone, please check out The Toy Society and see how you can get involved today!
