Blythe: The Anti-Barbie

Makers of those realistic dolls with homely faces and frumpy clothes don't get that the alternative to Barbie isn't Shlumpie. Girls who like dolls but don't want to buy into Barbie's tired and conventional standard of beauty still want some fantasy and glamour. Enter Blythe, the spooky and mysterious doll with the ginormous head and moveable eyes (there's a string behind her back). Introduced in the 70's and quickly pulled from the market because she scared kids, she's resurfaced due to one woman's obsession with her. Watch this video on the history of Blythe. You, too may become addicted to her! (This one's for you, Blythe15!)

The eyes are just a bit creepy. Not as scary as the Bratz dolls, though!
