Question of the Week: What was your first impression of Blythe?

I don’t remember exactly how I first found Blythe, but I’m pretty sure that it was probably on (a great general forum!) and I was probably browsing for the umpteenth time and stumbled across the photos of Blythe. From there (and Google), I found This is Blythe. At the time, the newest release was Velvet Minuet and I thought her bunny hood-and-cape was super cute. Velvet Minuet was later my 6th Blythe (named Kindred). I thought Blythe was cute, with her over-exaggerated head size like in some comics. Velvet Minuet was released in 2004, I did not get my first Blythe until 2009 (Cappuccino Chat).

One of my friends inย  my local Blythe group likes asking people what their first impressions of Blythe were. Hers was rather negative – she thought that Blythe wasn’t very cute at all! Of course, Blythe is patient and understand… and eventually charms her way into people’s hearts. My own boyfriend thought that Blythe was ‘weird’ (it’s mostly because of the changing-eyes thing). Now he finds them cute (or maybe he just says that for my benefit?). Regardless, Blythe is a charmer. She knows how to tug at heart strings and have full control over wallets. Despite being rejected by children in 1972, Blythe certainly knows how to command attention now. She’s making up for it!

Maybe you thought that Blythe was super cute, downright ugly or just meh… But you did have a first impression…

What was your first impression ofย  Blythe?

    I first saw her in Blythe Style in a local art gallery giftshop… I thought she was deliciously weird. ๐Ÿ™‚ I loved her straight away!

    My first impression of Blythe was that she was scary! The first photo I saw of her was the open head variety… I was disturbed lol! Then later, the friend who posted the open head picture posted more cool pix like Blythe out and about etc, wearing different fashion etc, i got more interested :3 My first doll was a VM! After about 20+ blythes… I have to stop for now despite being tempted by some of the current releases ๐Ÿ˜›

    “What the heck is that CREEPY DOLL?!” Followed by some research. Followed by, “SHE COSTS HOW MUCH?!?!?!?!” Haha. I love when I get those reactions from people now. Three of my friends who were unsure about Blythe now own their own dolls!!! It’s fun seeing them progress the same way I did ๐Ÿ™‚

    I was actually quite smitten but it took me quite a while to realize it was ok to play with dolls as an adult. Now I have one of my own and am loving creating all sorts of clothes for her.
    Most peeps think she is freaky, but my daughter loved her right away.
