QOTW: How many Middies or Petites do you have?

Blythe (Neo, full-sized, whatever you want to call them) are not the only doll in the Blythe family. There’s Petites, who have been produced by Takara from 2002 to present (last one being the 2011 anniversary Petite) and by Hasbro/Littlest Pet Shop since 2010, and the Middies, who have been produced since 2010. In comparison to the Barbie family line, Petites would be Kelly (or later Chelsea) and Middies would be Skipper. But this is a post about the Blythe family, not of the Barbie one (even if Blythe can fit Skipper fashions quite well and Kelly shoes fit the Middie dolls).

I have no Middies (which is a problem for me as I’ve seen some beautifully done customized Middies and I really want one) and I have one LPS Petite (who has been featured on the blog a few times).

How many Middies do you have? How many Petites (Takara or LPS) do you have?

    I bought my first middie this past summer just to see what all the hype was about and also to possibly make clothes to sell in my Etsy shop. She is a Milk & Honey and all of us (me and my two daughters) immediately fell in love. Now we have two more (Parsons Grace & Francoise Ananassa) and I plan to get the new one, Jackie Ramone, when she comes out next month.

    I got my youngest DD a Takara petite for christmas, Tora Unpappa, and she loves her. We have a small army of the LPS petites but, IMHO, there is no comparison. The Takara ones are so much more dainty and have loads of personality. Plus their hair is just so much better. She wants to get more and has built a small doll area in her room for them!

    I haven’t got a Middie yet, but one’s definitely on my wishlist. As for Petites, I’ve got 3: 1 Takara and 2 LPS. The Takara is very special because I bought her directly at the JunieMoon store in Tokyo.

    I just have my one Middie… I really love the customized ones I’ve seen and I hope to get mine customized sometime.

    I have three Petites (1 Takara and 2 LPS) and a Middie on the way. I love my Takara Petite. She was the first doll I bought five years ago, when my fascination with Blythe begin. At the time, I couldn’t justify spending $100+ on a doll. Three and a half years ago, I bought my first Neo and now have five.
