Today, these toys have a history of their own
Blythe dolls were originally released in 1972 and became popular. However, the toy company Kenner only lasted for a single year before discontinuing the line.
It's possible that Margaret Kenner's inspiration came from the popular paintings she was admiring. The big-eyed children and animals in them are familiar to anyone who looks at them. The doll makers might have been inspired by a series of terrifying dolls called Little Miss No Name.
Regardless of their inspiration, Blythe dolls have been popular for decades. Her oversized head and large eyes were considered too scary for kids at the time, and it wasn't until decades later that she emerged from the mists of time, and burst onto the collectible toy scene in a big way.
In 2000, TV producer, amateur photographer and Blythe enthusiast Gina Garan published a book containing photographs of the iconic toy posing in fashionable locations. She dressed her dolls as if they were models on a fashion shoot.
After the release of the 1970s doll Blythe, collectors started tracking down original versions on sites like EBAY and Amazon. That same year, Japanese company Takara began producing new Blythe dolls called Neo Blythe. Collectors soon found themselves in a heated bidding war over one-of-a-kind pieces. It wasn't long before the dolls started appearing in advertisements for fashion designers like Alexander McQueen and electronics companies like SONY .
**Blythe Doll for Kids: **A Gift the Grows
If you're thinking of getting a Blythe doll as a gift for a child in your life, it's worth knowing that this toy can become a lifelong commitment. Many people collect them into adulthood.
Blythe dolls are a unique addition to kids' toy boxes, bringing a little-known perspective on the complexities of being a girl. If a girl wants to change Blythe's appearance, she can do so through play. However, Blythe is there for more than just playing around with looks. As girls grow up and start venturing out in the world, they'll find Blythe helpful in fostering other interests as well.
Blythe gives girls a chance to practice and develop their unique sense of style. Maybe they embrace photography as a teen and build elaborate sets for her, or they want to be a clothing designer when they grow up.

Blythe makes all the apparel that define a person who is unique and full of personality.
Blythe dolls have been iconic for many years. Although they were originally a fashion doll, they're now popular among fashionable influencers as well as the shyest collectors of toys.
Most people are not immune to her charms.
With her unusual, UNMISTAKABLE EYES--each doll has a different set--some people believe it's because you can dress her in any way you choose. Others believe it's because of her unique proportions. Even today, dolls like Bratz have similar oversized heads.
Blythe, who was originally created by fans, has a lasting legacy.
Blythe dolls appreciate in value as they retain their original condition with age.
For determined collectors, a Blythe doll is more than just another one of their favorite toys. Instead, it’s an INVESTMENT in their future.
Not only will the dolls sell for a higher price than other dolls, but they will also appreciate in value over time.
Original dolls from the eighties and seventies are more sought after and cost much more. However, a beautifully made NEO BLYTHE DOLL can still go for hundreds of dollars or more.
The more original the customization, the more awesome it is. Even BLYTHE DOLL ACCESSORIES such as BLYTHE DOLL SHOES and CLOTHES to backpacks can also come with a hefty price tag.

Here are four important reasons why you should work with us:
We proudly provide every kind of Blythe doll product and service, with free shipping, to customers and people worldwide. These countries include: the United States, Canada, Australia, United Kingdom, France, Germany, Sweden, Italy, Spain and New Zealand.
A trend in the latest wave of customers at EDELWEISSDAY is that Blythes from competing retailers, such as eBay and Amazon, have unpleasant odors. What's more, they're made with cheaper plastics that release chemicals into your home when heated. Our dolls and products are manufactured with genuine original parts using our custom patented limbs and joints. As such, this ensures that we never use PVC plastic in the body like other dolls found online. We also don't use chemicals or plastic for artificial smells to give the product a more "authentic" look.
Some other companies and sellers are not delivering their dolls at all. Customers have also complained that these vendors have hidden fees, taxes, or high customs charges. For the most part, we've received messages from new customers who have been frustrated by the lack of response from these vendors - we show many happy customers in our EDELWEISSDAY REVIEWS section because we work hard to deliver their packages as promised.
Give your loved ones gifts, and we'll send them to someone in need.
One thing you can be sure of when you gift a Blythe doll is that your recipient will have a lifetime of fun playing with her.
Blythe lovers will enjoy styling items for her to wear, design the sets she’s on, and curate photoshoots. They'll also get to participate in a global community with other dedicated collectors.
