QOTW: What are your collection goals?

Everyone has different goals for their Blythe collection. Some people want a Kenner with every possible hair style, others want one of every single BL ever produced (a lofty goal, to be sure), while others collect every single Middie release as they are produced. Me? I want to own one of every single mold type. That is, I want to own one each of a Kenner, ADG, BL, EBL, SBL, RBL, FBL, RBL+, Middie, Petite (LPS) and Petite (Takara).


With the addition of Lottie, I finally (!) have a BL to call my own – and isn’t she so cute? The only one that I have left to add to the family is an ADG (Ashton-Drake Galleries produced faithful reproductions to the original 1972 Kenners from 2005-2008, more information here). I do have plans to acquire one soon, and then I will have met my goal. And then perhaps I will need a new goal? Maybe? Maybe I’ll start by getting more shelf space for my dolls…

What are your collection goals?

    Oh I plan to add more. If I see a cute Takara, I’ll go for it. And of course I’ll pick up another “factory” doll with a funky hair colour because I like to change it up. I’ll just say I’m gonna keep collecting. As long a I have several of them, I’m happy!

    My pipedream is to have all of the translucents hahaha I don’t like my chances there! I have one of each mould that Takara released which was another goal of mine. I’m not sure what my current goal is, actually. I suppose I shall have to make a new one. Maybe just to finish off my definite neo wishlist (of affordable girls).

    Good luck with your goal! Look forward to seeing your ADG whenever you get her 🙂

    I haven’t really thought about my collection in terms of having goals before! I do want to get a Neo who has shorter hair, as I don’t have one yet (currently stalking French Trench and Cloud Nine Bowl on ebay), so I guess that counts as my current goal. 🙂

    Hmmm… I think mine is to get 1 anniversary girl. Hopefully the 15th anniversary doll is really pretty.

    I would like to have a translucent girl, a BL, and some middies to add to my SBL and RBL collection

    My goal is to find a Blythe at a thrift store or a flea market.
    It’s quite far fetched but I always look out Incase if I get lucky.
    I’ve heard of sightings at a flea market near me, so I’m hoping I’ll find one soon!
