I put out an open request on Twitter for people to tell me what about Blythe makes them happy and it’s amazing the kind of responses that I got. I’ve included below every single tweet that I got (if I didn’t include yours, it may be because your Twitter account is private and I was unable to read it). I also received some responses via Flickr, so those are linked to the Flickr accounts instead, and some are also linked to blog links as well.

The memories I’ve associated with each doll. Either from when I got it, or had taken a doll with me for an important event. – natsukigirl
Blythe inspires us to try new things! And to make more time for crafting. – TheAnneArchy
Blythe makes me happy because she doesn’t ask for juice every 5 seconds, doesn’t sweat or need a daily bath, she doesn’t ask me to borrow the car, always makes curfew, isn’t passive aggressive, is house broken…um…keeps laundry to a minimum, never cries or whines (audibly..) keeps her promises, doesn’t hold a grudge for anymore than a reasonable amount of time, doesn’t jump n the bed or sit too close to the tv, doesn’t gamble, generally likes what I like LOL. – Dolls Crystals n Positively Stoned
There isn’t one way that Blythe doesn’t [make me happy]! They make me smile daily! – Rosiee Gelutie
The girls connect me to my favorite people on the planet, they make the planet a lot smaller, they make me a lot braver, they heal my childhood, they make me smile, and they represent unsermountable kindness, joy and love. – SparkleFriday
Everything from the aesthetics of Blythe (their big eyes and hair and how unique each girl, even of the same model, can look) to her clothing to the photography and other myriad creative aspects of being a fan/collector of Blythe truly makes me happy! The scope for imagination and creativity is endless! – Jane
She makes me happy because I love her! Blythe’s are different, she’s my muse and inspiration and she brought me many many friends when I just moved to a new country, and I love her big heads and eyes 😉 She brings out the brave in me to go out and take dolly photos, not caring for any strange looks or remarks ^^ – puppy52
Blythe has made me fearless! I bring her everywhere and do everything with her! She is the perfect companion when I am happy, sad, lonely, hungry, bored…
She has brought me friends that I never would have met otherwise. I have become more social because of her and I now have girlfriends. She breaks down borders and stereotypes and she is never critical or judgmental. Each girl I have gives me something different and I love her unconditionally! – mydollies4
I guess I like Blythe because I’ve always liked miniatures. Seeing the cute little outfits that people dress her in makes me drool with envy. I like the way people are so creative with needle and thread, needle and yarn and enjoy doing the same.
I also enjoy the social gatherings in the name of Blythe! I look forward to the meet-ups, but wish there were more people in my age group attending!!! – Joliechic1
Blythe has been extremely therapeutic for me. Maybe it wasn’t a coincidence that she came in to my life in the aftermath of a falling out with my long-time, and only, girl-friend. I haven’t been close to anyone like that since, but blythe has helped fill in that gap, in a very unique way.
Blythe shares my love of vintage fashion, crafts, mischief… I know that she is only a doll, but she is far from “inanimate”. She makes me happy when I’m sad, inspired when I’m low, giddy like a child when I’m faced with “adult decisions”. Thats all that I could ever ask from our relationship, and I’m grateful to have her in my life! – Dusty.feathers
Blythe for me is a creative muse! I can make her anything I want her to be! I love making her clothes and even the joy of creating her from scratch by customing.I too love sharing this lovely doll with other collectors and making other fun creative friends! – lace52000
Blythe makes me happy because she let’s me be creative and allows a reprieve from a sometimes-too-serious life. – liveloveyarn
