The last Friday of every month is part of a feature on, Friday Five. Welcome everyone to this month’s installment! I mention 5 things I love every month.

If you have any suggestions for next month’s Friday Five, please don’t hesitate to email me! Maybe you have a site you think that I should feature or a pattern that’s free and up on the web? Tell me!

For the month of November I wanted to spread the love of sites and blog posts that I enjoyed.

  1. Katie from managed to find the original 1972 television commerical for Kenners (marketed in Australia by Toltoys) and I love it! It’s similar to the American/Kenner video, only with a different narrative voice and a different girl playing with the doll.
  2. BlytheCon 2013 announced the date and venue over the weekend! I know a lot of people are excited over going to NYC next year, so head on over as ticket sales started on November 27th!
  3. Most of us remember when Plastic Paradise came into existence, but did you know it’s come back? The forum that was the basis for Blythe Kingdom is now a forum once again – and it’s all about Blythe and other plastic dolls. Don’t worry, Blythe Kingdom is still around!
  4. In case you missed it, The Guardian published an article about Blythe and BlytheCon UK back in October. Pretty neat to see our favourite doll in the media! I keep showing it to my non-dolly friends. “See! It’s not just me that plays with dolls!”, cue the eye rolls…
  5. Early this month, Fanny Zara of Mademoiselle Blythe did a feature about Black Blythes and I just found it such a fascinating read! The customization process is a step up because of the difficulties with painting the bodies to match the face plates and three customizers shared their tips with Fanny. Very educational and the photos are gorgeous to boot!

If you know of a site, group or activity that you think I should highlight in next month’s Friday Five, let me know! Comment below or email me.

    Thanks for the mention 🙂 I thought Plastic Paradise went down again but maybe I went there on a bad day hehe. I really want to go to Blythecon NY but have no idea what my plans are for next year.
