Question of the Week: Would you get a Middie?

When Middie was first announced, a lot of people thought she was weird. For instance, why make another doll? Why didn’t she have a pullstring? There were talks about how overpriced she was (is) and how she doesn’t really do anything. There’s a handful of Middies currently and not as many crafters dedicating some time to make clothing that are Middie-sized.

I am not going to lie, when I first saw Middie I just thought she was weird. When I saw the price of Middie, I was definitely turned off. After all, that much money for a doll that doesn’t have a pullstring? At least Petites (Takara or LPS) are more conservatively priced (~$10-30) and they don’t do much either. But a Middie? To me, Middie was the gawky middle child. Not cute and bubbly like a Petite, and definitely doesn’t hold a candle to the bigger (original) size of Blythe.

But… Middie grew on me. Like fungus. Or a bacterial culture (I’m so mean). After seeing more and more (cute!!) photos of Middie, she’s starting to warm up to me. I mean, I’m definitely waiting for a less expensive, regular release (I don’t know if I can justify current retail prices for one!) but she’s definitely a cutie and I’m definitely considering one… one day.

How do you feel about Middie? Would you get one?

    I don’t think I would ever get a Middie. I don’t like their faces at all..they look like pouty little brats to me, lol. If I’m going to spend a lot of $$ I will dedicate to a full-size Blythe with all the awesome features and character.

    I’d love a Middie, as I think they’re adorable, but for the price I’d rather get a full sized Blythe.

    Definitely the fungus effect for me. I neeeeed one!

    I don’t know that I’d ever get one…but, I hated BLs at first too…LOL!

    Middie is pricey, and I don’t really care for petites either. If I’m going to shell out $200+, I’ll get a full sized Blythe on my want list instead.

    I think that the middie has such a sweet little face, I will most likely get one when there is a release that I just can’t resist.
