Blythe dolls are a line of fashion dolls created by designer Allison Katzman and produced by toy company Takara Tomy. First released in Japan in 2001, Blythe dolls have been released in a number of different countries and have become popular among collectors. Blythe dolls are notable for their large heads and eyes, which give them an exaggerated cute appearance. Blythe dolls are typically 28 cm tall, although some limited edition dolls can be taller or shorter. Blythe dolls typically come with a number of different outfits and accessories, and many doll owners enjoy customizing their Blythes with new clothes and hairstyles.
Blythe dolls have a unique feature that allows their eyes to change color and look in different directions. This is made possible by a special mechanism in the head that consists of four small balls that are surrounded by a clear disk. The disk is attached to the back of the head and can be moved around to change the direction of the gaze. The balls are color-coded and when they line up in front of the pupil, they create the illusion of a different eye color.
There are many places to buy Blythe dolls, both online and in physical stores. Some of the most popular online retailers include Amazon, eBay, and Alibaba. There are also numerous independent sellers who sell Blythe dolls through their own websites such as the famous This Is Blythe online portal. There are so many This Is Blythe reviews online and almost all reviews are amazing speaks of the company for it self. In terms of physical stores, there are a few dedicated Blythe doll shops around the world, as well as some larger toy stores that stock a small selection of Blythe dolls.
