QOTW: If you had to sell a doll today, who would it be?

This is the complete opposite of asking you who your favourite it, it’s asking you who your least favourite is (and who you would be willing to sell). I (almost) feel bad for asking it, but it does give one food for thought. I know for sure who I wouldn’t sell (Sophie, Primrose, Emmalynn, Eden), but then there’s the question of who I would sell and that gets a little harder. If I had to pick someone (and I guess I’ve kind of put myself on the spot here and I have nobody to blame but me), I’d probably choose Cedar (Monique Magnifique):


She doesn’t get a lot of photo time, her hair is a little unruly at times (which is why I tend to avoid taking her out to doll meets), and… I just haven’t had that much “bonding” time with her. I don’t know her personality. Of course, not that I mentioned this, I’ll just take her out to the next doll meet and take lots of photos and find the perfect outfit for her. And then I’ll be back to square one of not knowing who I’d sell in a heartbeat (if absolutely necessary). However, Cedar would also be the one I would vote most likely to be sent of to get customized because I’m not terribly attached to her. (Is that awful??)

    There’s a LPS Blythe that I got at the thrift store a couple of weeks ago. I can’t seem to bond with her and she isn’t really bonding with my other girls too well. I’ll probably follow through with selling her soon though.

    I wouldn’t sell anyone. If I was in need of money, I would look for something else to sell, but never a doll. I only buy dolls I really love and every single one in my collection is special to me for different reasons. So, as there is not a “least favourite” one, selling a doll would be out of the question to me.

    I also couldn’t sell anyone as of today. I already sold two dolls last year because I didn’t feel the same interest in the dolls as I do my other girls, or I felt that my collection and tastes have outgrown them… One was a bjd and the other was a factory girl I customized.

    I used to think I’d sell my Cadence Majorette, Primrose, but I’m really growing attached to her young, sweet innocent vibe. Honestly even my Sally Salmagundi, which arrived by accident would not leave my home. I love all my girls! 🙂

    I feel like I have too few dolls to even think of selling one! 🙂 They’re all so different: Willow (Prima Dolly Ashlette) is my first Blythe, so I could never sell her. Dahlia (Mademoiselle Rosebud) I got from a friend and I just adore her hair. Ash (custom) is my first custom that I got just exactly what I wanted for both her reroot and her faceup. And Ellis I also got from a friend and I can’t imagine not keeping her! I only have one Middie, Maude (Jackie Ramone) and she is just perfect as well. I am terrible at this! 🙂

    Such a difficult question! I believe I would part with my Prima Dolly Paris, Gavin, because I find it very hard to dress her to my satisfaction; her white skin/purple lips/lack of shadow is a tricky combination. Even though I like her a lot! I initially wanted to get her customized but I have a hard time envisioning doing that at this point, having had her 5+ years.

    Definitely not my Kenner, for obvious reasons, and definitely not my leopard sass as she was my first blythe. I’d probably have to say Blair, my check it out. And not because I don’t love her or because she’s my least favourite but because most of my dolls have been gifts except her and my les jeunette and i definitely couldn’t imagine parting with her. Though preferably I’d sell my fake who is in pieces while I play customiser rather than any of my official takaras
