The contents of this page for Kenner Blythe is still under construction. Please check back later and often, this is a BRAND NEW SITE and there is much work to be done on it.
1000 to 1 Odds, YOU either OWN a Kenner, or wish that you did. Most of us would not mind a Kenner Blythe that was played with and loved much... ie .... a "hot mess'. In fact, many of us, would rather have that 'hot mess' than a Kenner that has been restored.
The Original Makers of the Blythe Doll in 1972. This might surprise a lot of people, those that LOVE the Blythe Dolls, the Original Blythe Dolls did NOT do well as a toy sold in 1972. The bottom line was, a lot of kids were scared by the doll.

My First Kenner Blythe Doll
This is my first Kenner Blythe Doll we bought in Chicago IL, while at Sherry and Gigi's Doll Store. How did I get in? My Dear Friend Dorie Troupis, who I met from Youtube, her Channel, Dorie's Dollies (seriously, if you have never seen her channel, YOU are missing out) who secured an appointment for us. The Store IS AMAZING!
Deron and I took a trip to Chicago, Dorie and her Husband Andrew showed us a MARVELOUS time, including but not limited to, going the Sherry' and Gigi's Doll Store, American Girl Store, Thrift Stores, Dinner, and a tour of Down Town Chicago!~ I could go on and on about the visit, but I guess I was talking about my Kenner Blythe.
I had not held a Kenner in my hands before this one. So I was excited to see her. I do watch auctions and sales on ebay, so I had an idea of about what this doll might sell for.

Kenner History and 50th Anniversary BytheCon
While I, at this time, do not own a Kenner Blythe Doll. I did attend the 50th Birthday BlytheCon in Cincinnati Ohio where the Kenner Blythe was produced in 1972.
While I was at the Con, my husband Deron, took my Daisy Blythe and went down and video taped some of the History of the Kenner Blythe along with WHERE the dolls were made and shipped from.

Hard To Find Items
My first Kenner Blythe came to me the way MOST Kenners come today...without Shoes and without a Doll Stand. You should also note, sometimes Kenner Blythes come without their original clothing, mine came with a 1972 Dress, but not the one she was sold in..
I had bought a Takara Blythe the same way, she no longer had her shoes.
Deron 3D Printed Shoes for my own dolls. The Takara Shoes also fit my Ashton Drake Blythes as well as my Kenner. I am thrilled with them. We started selling them in our own On Line Store here on this site. If you need a different color, contact me at Marna@WhimsicalBlythe.com.
Deron is also in the process of designing a Kenner Blythe Doll Stand. Our Blythe Doll Stands, we have for sale now, will fit and work well for any Blythe Body Type. He is designing something a bit special coming soon.
