Filed under: Question of the Week
When I had under 10, it was super easy to remember all of my dolls’ names. Now that I’m getting up there in number, sometimes it actually takes me a moment when I look at a doll to think about what their name is. This usually doesn’t happen with a doll that’s been in my Blythe family for a while (like I could ever forget Sophie’s name!), but it sometimes it does happen with newer dolls.
The other day I was having a conversation where I called my Mondrian Lollie and then I paused and went “No wait, her name is ‘Lottie’…” and the person I was talking with went “Did you really just forget your doll’s name?”
“Do I look like a Lollie to you?!”
Yes, the answer is yes. For instance, I know that I named my Devi Delacour Maple Reed, but the other day I caught myself only referring to her as Reed and I knew as soon as I said it out loud that was wrong as well. I’m terrible, I know.
I really should just get little name cards for all my dolls so when they’re on the shelf they’re easily identified by name, stock name, and mold type – like in a museum.
Do you remember all of your dolls’ names?
