Blythe is an interesting topic of choice to bring up to a significant other, or a potential significant other. Especially when you consider that the original Kenner Blythe didn’t exactly take off due to people being scared of her abnormally large features (and the changing of the eyes).

I can’t entirely remember how I introduced my boyfriend to Blythe. I’m about 99.99% sure that I had shown him a bunch of photos and just went on and on about the pros and cons of each doll. For instance, I was pretty sure that my first doll was going to be Natasha Moore (long dark pinky hair, houndstooth coat, beauty mark, SBL). This was before I knew anything really about molds (or telling them apart)… I’d send photo after photo of Natasha Moore this and Natasha Moore that. But it didn’t take until the first moment that I bought myself a Blythe doll that he realized that the eyes changed. Apparently I managed to neglect that fact that the eyes changed at all. I guess I was so excited over theĀ idea of getting a Blythe that I didn’t think about how to explain it to someone who didn’t understand it (or necessarily want to discuss dolls) – I have the luckiest boyfriend who gets to listen to me yap about dolls all the time.

How well does your significant other get along with your Blythes?

    Haha good question! My hubby tolerates my obsessive talking about these beautiful girls. He even nods and acts interested! One time I was showing him a dress I’d knitted for one of my girls and he said he thought it was a bit too poofy for her slender figure. So I went back and knit another one less-poofy and he approved and was in disbelief that I listened to his opinion! Dolls are so much fun and Blythe dolls are a joy to have around. So nice to have an interest to dive into after a long hard day at the office.

    My hubby is very encouraging of my hobby. I like to design and sew for my girls. Gino knows how important this creative outlet is for me. Of course, I’ve been content with a small family of Blythe dolls. He gets a kick out of the girls and their antics. He even has a favorite!

    Gav has always been cool with my dolls (but dolls were in my life before he was so he never had much of a choice :P)

    I could make an entire blog post of ridiculous photos of G and the plastic ladies. (Maybe I should!!)
