Blythe Doll Classification List

On one of the Doll Adoption Facebook groups some sellers were not properly classifying or even disclosing the base doll.   I think there was maybe a bit of confusion so I decided to make this list on Blythe411 that would hopefully clarify all the different Blythe dolls and fakes.

Blythe Doll Classifications


1.  Vintage
Prototypes
1972 Kenner Blythe Dolls - Original Blythe Doll
AiAi Chan - Original Japanese version Blythe doll.

2. Official
Any Blythe doll reproductions licensed by Kenner and/or Hasbro.
Takara/CWC - prototypes, neo, middie, petites, belle miniatures & kubric.
ToysRUs - prototypes & neo
AshtonDrake - neo
Littlest Pet Shop - petites

3.  Factory
Official Blythe doll parts that did not meet quality or stolen and pieced together then sold online.

4.  Fakes 
Eye changing doll rips/copies that were not licensed.
TBL - Taobao Blythe dolls - got it's name from Chinese online type bay. 
CLones - Little Big Eyes, Baask, Blybe, Icy...
5.  Customs
You can take any doll from this list and customize it to be a custom doll.  If you decide to sell please list base doll.  Thank you!


What do you think?  Post on the Blythe411.
