QOTW: How do you store your Blythes?

I reorganized my desk a bit

I’m a little particular about how I store my Blythes. This is probably a good thing, given how much that they cost.

My Takaras/Neos stay on their stands on my desk at the current moment. They’re generally always on their stand unless they’re sitting with me or being toted around in my purse. My Kenners are usually stored laying down so that they’re not touching each other. I think I’m more willing to let the Takaras hang out on their stands because they don’t have a history of cracking or falling apart where the legs go into their bodies. But Kenners on the other hand? They do.

I’m still really careful with my Kenners even after repairing a pelvis crack and swapping out bottoms for newer ones. I think it’s because they’re so expensive that I take extra care with them. They rarely leave the house unless it’s for a meet (Takaras are more likely to attend meets and also be carried around without a meet to go to). Is it weird that I treat my Kenners and Takaras differently? I hope not.

How do you store your Blythes?

Do you store your Kenners and Takaras/ADGs differently from each other? How about the stock vs. customized dolls?

    I only have two so I don’t worry too much about all that stuff. My Very Vicky stock i keep with my Alice in Wonderland books shelf on her stand. And the Lydia that I customized is on my Tim Burton themed shelf. and that’s about it! haha

    I have shelves in my room for my girls. They are all on their stands in pretty outfits that I change fairly regularly. My daughters each have shelves in their rooms, too, that they have turned into dolly houses with sofas, tables, and beds!

    I don’t usually ‘store’ my girls at all! They are generally in the livingroom, kitchen, or hanging out in the dollhouse…sometimes on stands, sometimes sitting, leaning, etc. I just moved the dollhouse into my bedroom (to redo the ‘doll room’) and it is nice having them around when I get up/change/go to bed/do chores/etc!

    I think it’s perfectly understandable to treat your more expensive and fragile Kenners with a bit more care, especially since it seems harder to repair them than it might be with Takaras!

    My girls simply stand on a line on the top of my desk, overseeing their domain!

    Well, my Blythe family is super small . . . just two . . . plus their little Odeco sister . . . They just stand or sit (depending on my mood) on my desk out of the sunlight, watching me make stuff and waiting to have their outfits changed. Pretty sad.

    I just have one, but she stays on her stand on my desk in my apartment when I’m at school, when I’m at my mom’s she sits in an almost 40 year old bright yellow Barbie chair on the ledge in my room. But not always, I bring her around with me sometimes.
