Question of the Week: When do you get a new doll?

Inner thoughts

There are a lot of reasons to get a new doll. Maybe it your birthday. Or you asked for one for your Christmas present. Maybe you just graduated, finished your degree or can finally call yourself a doctor. Or maybe you just stumbled across an auction for that grail doll that you’d just been dreaming about and thought to yourself “Oh, why not?”. Or maybe you just got a sizeable tax-return cheque from the government and it’s just burning a hole in your pocket…

Whatever your reason, there’s always some reason for getting a newย  Blythe doll. Whether it’s “just because” or because you’re getting older decide that having another doll will keep you youthful, there’s always a reason for your doll buying (or splurging, as the case could be).

Most of my dolls were bought because I had the money available (and didn’t have other pressing needs for it) and because the dolls were also available. I didn’t really have much of a reason besides the fact that I could (I know, that’s a horrible reason, really). Although I did get two of my dolls so far as gifts. I got my Simply Peppermint (named Tertiary Jane) as a birthday gift from my parents and I also got Punkaholic People (named Eden) as a Christmas present from my parents as well, much to my sisters’ disbelief that my parents were encouraging and supporting this dolly habit of mine!

When do you get a new doll?

    My family doesn’t celebrate birthdays or holidays so that’s not an option for me. For me it always comes down to if I have the extra money to spend or not. If I do, then the major factor is if a dream girl is available. If not, is a ” wild card” girl around for a decent bargain? If so, then she’s mine! A great example is the last girl I got – Silver Snow. She was MIB, came at a bargain, and I’ve always loved her even though she wasn’t a dream girl. So for me the choice to buy more than anything else comes down to whether I can actually afford it at the time or not. And as a rule I never use credit to buy Blythes, only debit.

      That’s always a good mind-set to have about buying dolls, especially since they aren’t necessities (technically). I use my credit card when I’m buying dolls, but that’s because it was easier to set up to use online, but I always pay it off when I get the statement. ๐Ÿ™‚

    As long as you can make the payments on time and don’t let too much interest accrue I think using credit is totally fine. Unfortunately I’ve gotten myself in trouble using credit in the past so I just avoid doing it anymore. It’s just better for me if I don’t lol.

    If I have the cash, I transfer it into my card account and buy a doll! Having only discovered Blythe at the end of July this year, I’ve been madly ‘catching up’ and have now depleted my spending money ๐Ÿ™
    Roll on payday!
