About Blythe Dolls

Blythe arrived in 1972 and and she was created by Kenner Toy company.

The original line consisted of 4 dolls and 12 outfits. With names like Priceless Parfait, Kozy Kape and Roaring Red the outfits and accessories where classic 70’s.

The thing that made Blythe different from all the other dolls (and perhaps explains her rather ample cranium) was that her eyes changed color. From the pull of her string at the back of her head they went from green to pink to blue to orange. Wherever the mood takes her there is an expression to suit.

Blythe doll laid undiscovered until a talented photographer from New York called Gina Garan got her as a gift and started making photos of her Blythe doll everywhere she went and made her an overnight star with the book This Is Blythe.

About Blythe Dolls

Blythe is now her own girl and she is represented by the CWC model agency. She’s in high demand for modeling jobs and has worked for such designers as Vivienne Westwood among others.

In 2001 a Japanese toy company called Takara which is owned by Hasbro, who in turn, own the rights to Blythe after they acquired the Kenner company way back, began to reproduce the Blythe doll. Today there is an online shop called “This Is Blythe” that makes custom Blythe dolls and accessories for them and with great design and quality as seen on numerous This Is Blythe reviews online.

A whole bunch of us who couldn’t keep up with the rocketing price of Kenner’s Blythe breathed a sigh of relief!
