Middie Monday is a feature that is published on the first Monday of each month! A guaranteed monthly post on Blytheโ€™s little sister โ€“ Middie! If you have any suggestions for a future Middie Monday post, please send me an email or use my Suggestions form!

A couple weeks ago I wrote about being content with the Blythes that I have, but then the promotional photographs of Melanie Ubique Girl (an October 2015 release) came up. And despite the horrible name (ubique – really???!), although “ubique” is an actual word (for the curious, it is Latin for “everywhere”). But Melanie Ubique Girl’s older sister is Margo Unique Girl and it would have been a touch more fitting if the Middie was named Melanie Unique Girl (MUG 2.0). She is an adorable doll with super cute ash blonde hair and bangs (I’m a big fan of Middie dolls with bangs). And while I may not be in the right situation to buy a new Middie right now, she is super cute and I’d love to add her to the dolly family one day! (Plus – those shoes! the socks! the sunglasses!)


Do you think Melanie Ubique Girl would fit in well with Lydia (Yellow Marshmallow) and Kitty (Jackie Ramone)? And while I really was content with the dolls that I do have, now I’m jonesing for a new dolly. Maybe it’s because she’s super cute, or because I really love MUG 1.0 (but will never ever be able to afford her or justify buying her), or because I just really miss the whole aspect of continuously and obsessively checking tracking online.

    It’s the love of anticipation. I love ordering things, and waiting for them, and receiving an object in the mailbox, and opening it, and it’s new! It’s exciting! I take a picture…. and then it goes on the shelf and I go back to the internet for the next new thing. There’s always something.

    You have to ask if you really want another Middie, or if you just want to wait for her to come and be new. Or if you’ve had a good day & you deserve a new Middie, then it’s ok too.

    I preordered Melanie and I’m SO excited. I think she’d fit in really well with your middies ๐Ÿ˜€ Also, I can’t believe I didn’t even make the connection with ubique (I mean, ubiquitous is one of my favourite words, and if you read her little ‘bio’ it totally makes sense) but it is a bit awkward. Haha.

    I’m really looking forward to seeing what the new Alice in Wonderland middie looks like but I’m still not sure if they’re for me. I have 4 petites but think of them more as ornaments than dolls (they’re actually displayed with my vintage deer figurine collection). For me personally I kind of see them as being an all together different doll but maybe I’d feel differently if I saw one in person. I do think Melanie Ubique would fit in great with Lydia and Kitty though

    This may be a really basic question – but I’m wondering how/where you get notified about new Blythe releases. Is there an email list one can sign up for, or an RSS feed from a particular website?

      I find that someone often posts about new Blythe releases on the Blythe Facebook groups, and also on forums (e.g. Blythe Kingdom). I also check into on a monthly basis, since that’s roughly how often a new doll is announced/released ๐Ÿ™‚
