What Is A Blythe Doll?
Blythe is a collectible fashion doll with an oversized head and large eyes that change color up to a total of four times with the pull of a string. From the legacy of Barbie and Cabbage Patch Kids comes a new era of dolls, Blythe dolls. Like Barbie, Blythe Dolls are a stylish generation of fashionable, high-quality, and highly individualized dolls. These waif-like figures stand 12 inches or 30 cm tall, characterized by oversized heads and great big eyes. Their enchanting eyes change both colors and gaze with the pull of a string to match a specific mood, personality, or outfit.
A Blythe doll can change its eyes to match a specific outfit or personality. A cord coming out of the back of the head will close the eyes and switch them to another color. The direction of the eyes also changes in the process. These dolls are an art that ties at the heartstrings. Sentimental doll enthusiasts will complete their collection with these collectible figures and retain enjoyment for years to come.
They also have interchangeable body parts, and you can buy extra hands for a variety of gestures. In addition, you can adapt and customize all Neo Blythes with an enormous choice of accessories such as Blythe doll clothes, outfits, boots, and shoes. These accessories will be a great addition to your beautiful dolls on your home shelves, dollhouses, office, and school classroom desks. Click on the link to visit our Products and Accessories shop.

These adorable collectible dolls have unique charm and appeal.
The Story of Blythe Dolls
Allison Katzman created the first Blythe Doll in 1972. Blythes were then produced by the toy firm Kenner but gained and brought little popularity among children, and toy production was stopped after just one year though it was not the end of the road. As a result, the dolls made during this early spell gained a grown cult following and now sell for thousands of dollars.
Gina Garan, a photographer, and producer from New York, United States, is pivotal to the revival of these dolls. In the late 90s, she popularized the dolls globally, especially in Japan, after announcing the book ThisIsBlythe, along with later works, BlytheStyle, HelloBlythe! and Susie Says. These showcased her toys in a range of fashion shots in American states including California with fascinating and creative backdrops.
Today, these stunning Blythe dollies have a huge following globally. So whether you fancy sharing your real-life ideas and artwork creations with an ever-growing community of Blythe collectors, or you want to improve your photography through your uncommon ideas and perspectives, our dolls make excellent models and inspirations. Of course, they also make wonderful gifts for loved ones – your lovely family and friends of any age.
What does Blythe mean?
The word “Blythe” or Blithe means carefree or nonchalant. It means happiness and joy. It’s an energetic, modern, and contemporary name that many people think of with Noel Coward’s Blithe Spirit — a fun, lively, elaborate little play. So how do you spell b-lythe? The word’s spelling combines all those good vibes into an elegant English surname that’s an uncommon yet stylish name. Please note that many people confuse this with the City of Blythe, located in California, CA, United States.
Who created Blythe dolls?
Designer Allison Katzman created the very first original Blythe doll in 1972. Back then, Blythes were only sold by the toy manufacturer called Kenner. However, her oversized head and eyes that changed colors with a pull string did not go well with children, and Kenner only traded the four original dolls for a year.
In 1997, a United States, New York photographer Gina Garan received an original KennerBlythe as a gift and began working to bring her back to life and using the original vintage doll to practice her doll photography skills along with other Americans in public. She proved that it was not the end of the road at all. After taking thousands of photos of the doll, a toy producer in New York, United States of America, spotted Garan’s work. Together, they realized that this eccentric collectible doll would be famous in Japan and started seeking the right to reproduce the wide-eyed dolls again, which any child would love this time and hold most dear in their life for years.
Where Are Blythe Dolls Made?
In 2000, the toy firm produced a TV commercial featuring a new and improved doll for Parco’s department store. These newly improved dolls from the department market became an enormous hit in Japan, surrounding areas, and more than 1000 dolls were produced to meet customer demand. Arizona, United States company, Ashton Drake Gallery, also began making dolls for the United States market area; however, they were not as popular as their Japanese counterparts. While Takara’s Neo Blythe Dolls were based loosely on the 1972 originals, Ashton Drake attempted to produce exact replicas.
