So I found these little ones and I had to have them... Did you know about blythe dolls? There are the hasbro littlest pet shop version ( cheaper and still cute). For those who don't know them - Blythe is a fashion doll, about 28 cm (11 inch) tall, with an oversized head and large eyes that change color with the pull of a string. It was created in 1972 and was initially only sold for one year in the USA by toy company Kenner. In 2000 the photo book This is Blythe was published and in 2001 the Japanese toy company Takara began producing new editions of Blythe dolls. There is a network of hobbyists who customize the doll for resale and create clothing and shoes for Blythe. Enthusiasts share photographs of their work and their dolls on the Internet. ( source wikipedia ) Nowadays there are loads of blogs, flickr accounts and websites devotes to blythe can say vintage is trendy again, they are still produced by a Japanese company called Takara. Some websites you can take a look at : also . :)Hope you enjoy them :)
