Replacing the eyes of a Blythe doll can be a delicate process, but with patience and careful handling, it can be done effectively. Here's a step-by-step tutorial for assembling Blythe doll's eye replacement:

Materials Needed:

  1. Replacement Blythe doll eye chips
  2. Small screwdriver
  3. Tweezers
  4. Soft cloth or tissue
  5. Adhesive putty (optional)


  1. Prepare the Workspace:

    • Find a clean, well-lit workspace where you can comfortably work on the doll without any distractions.
    • Lay out all the necessary materials within reach.
  2. Remove the Current Eye Chips:

    • Gently lift the doll's scalp to expose the back of the eye mechanism.
    • Use a small screwdriver to carefully loosen and remove the screws holding the eye mechanism in place.
    • Once the screws are removed, carefully lift out the eye mechanism from the doll's head.
  3. Extract the Eye Chips:

    • Use tweezers to carefully extract the current eye chips from the eye mechanism.
    • Be gentle to avoid damaging the eye mechanism or the surrounding parts.
  4. Insert the Replacement Eye Chips:

    • Take the replacement eye chips and position them correctly in the eye mechanism.
    • Ensure that the eye chips are aligned properly and facing the correct direction.
    • Use tweezers to carefully press the eye chips into place, ensuring they are securely seated.
  5. Reassemble the Eye Mechanism:

    • Once the replacement eye chips are in place, carefully reinsert the eye mechanism into the doll's head.
    • Use a small screwdriver to reattach the screws and secure the eye mechanism in place.
    • Double-check that all screws are tightened properly, but be careful not to over-tighten them.
  6. Test the Eyes:

    • Gently move the eye lever or pull the cord to test the movement of the replacement eye chips.
    • Ensure that the eyes move smoothly and without any obstruction.
    • Adjust the tension or alignment if necessary to achieve the desired eye movement.
  7. Final Touches:

    • Once you're satisfied with the replacement, carefully lower the doll's scalp back into place.
    • Use a soft cloth or tissue to gently clean any fingerprints or smudges from the doll's face or eye mechanism.
    • Optionally, you can use adhesive putty to secure the scalp in place for a more permanent fix.
