What kind of things do you do when you’re unboxing a new (or new-to-you) Blythe? For me, I like to take photos of everything from the exterior box (i.e. shipping box!), the doll in the box, all the goodies that come taped up with an entire roll of tape to the insides of the box, when I pull the doll out, taking that plastic headband off and the first non-stock outfit on the new doll.
I’ve done this for every single Blythe that has ever entered into my house – even my Velvet Minuet who was new-to-me and came in a different stock box than the original. There’s just something that’s incredibly fun about opening up that box and seeing the doll for the first time. I could do without copious amounts of tape that hold everything hostage on the inside of the boxes (I’m sure you can relate!), but it’s still fun to pull everything out and see everything up close and personal rather than on the computer monitor!
What kind of unboxing rituals do you have? Do you take photos of every step or just the box and then the doll out of the box? What’s your favourite part of unboxing a new doll? Do you care if you’re the very first person to take the doll out of the box since she left the factory or do you like purchasing second-hand/previously loved Blythes?
