QOTW: Do your Blythes sit or stand?

My dolls are, for the most part, standers.

I have more dolls that I do stands, so some of my dolls are neatly wrapped in white cloth and they hang out in drawers (‘they’ being the Kenners and a custom). All my other full-sized Blythes stand on their clover stands, because there are the stands available for them. But occasionally my dolls will sit, depending…


My Middie, seeing as how she is my only one and she came with a stand, stays on her stand. It’s almost comical to me that the Middie has the same stand-arm issue that the Neos have. I find that neither the Neos or the Middies have arms that can be put down while on the stand – unless the doll is wearing shoes or boots – something that raises the doll enough, in which case the arms can be put down and not look funny.

As for my Petite, whom I received as a gift back in 2011, she hangs out in a comfy arm chair. I don’t have a stand for her, but then again she’s fairly small and doesn’t take up a lot of room! She hangs out with my only BJD, Joy. Let’s ignore the fact that they’re both still in what they wore to a Halloween meet in 2012…

    All my gals stand. Even though I don’t have enough stands for all of them. Some are just really good at leaning on the wall. 😉

    Depends on my mood. My dolls all have their own little room in a cubby of an Expedit bookcase. Sometimes they sit, sometimes they stand, sometimes they visit each other. It all depends on my mood. I have a rather small family and like to handle them often.
