Info and Where To Buy Middie (Middle) Blythe Dolls
Hasbro Takara Blythe has done it again with their new in between sized Middie Blythe Doll I am just in love with them! They are so kawaii which means cute in Japanese! ^o^ I have yet to pick one up but it seems they go for quite a bit so I want to wait to choose the perfect one before I do.
They measure 20 cm which is just under 8 inches and are described as being not too big, not too small, but just right. They are the middle size between the approx. 4 inch petites and the approx. 12 inch full neo sized Takara dolls. Their eyes are once color that moves from left to right, their arms are bendable, their waste does not move and their knees do not bend. http://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gif
You can purchase Middie from online and offline dolly shops/sites like Junie Moon. I have yet to see them in actual physical shops here in Toronto. I think the only place left that sells Blythe Dolls here is at The Silver Snail on Queen Street, at the upstairs area. You probably won't find them at your local toy store or Wal-Mart, but never say never! Look at the Pet Shop Petite Blythe Dolls. I got some at my local ToysRUs and Zellers for great deals. You can also buy Middie Blythe Dolls via BigEyedBuys.com
I tend to favor dark haired and raven Blythe dolls so I will probably pick one with that style. It's so cool to think that all these dolls were inspired by only one 70s Kenner Blythe doll that only had 4 different hair colors, 4 wigs and 12 separate outfit sets. I almost forgot that 70s Japanese Blythe dolls that were named AiAi Chan and they had 5 different dolls - 2 brunettes, 2 red heads and a blond. Each had a different outfit. I don't believe there were wigs or outfit sets sold separately, though.
Love, A xo
