Blythe: A Real Doll And Obsession

LITTLE GIRLS LOVE THEIR DOLLS, BUT IT TAKES BIG GIRL BUCKS TO LAND A BLYTHE DOLL. The original demure wide-eyed beauty was made for one year, 1972, by the Kenner toy company, according to Wikipedia. Three decades later, several other companies have undertaken recreating her. But of course the original doll is most coveted, and she’s become an obsession among collectors. There is a booming market on Etsy for hand-made clothing for Blythe and her companions, where you can find an outfit to reflect any geography or personality.
