Okay.. so I saw this post days ago, and fell in absolute loooove with your doll, and decided I was going to look for one. And holy COW.. whoever got you that doll must reaaaaally love you!! They are sooo expensive!! Even on ebay!! I saw one missing legs that just ended at over 800 bucks!! I saw some little knock offs though that I might have to get.. because I am a cheapie. Anyway, you have totally inspired me here.. I need a perdy big eyed doll to make clothes for. That dress is gorgeous!!
Okay, I am done rambling..
Have a great week!
haha, the doll you found in ebay is probably vintage kenner doll which was manufactured in 72's. That time kids got really scared because of this lovely big head, they stopped making. But late 90 to early 2000, this doll got popular again and one of japaness manufacture started making reproductions. Mine is one of them. It's not cheap (like barbie) but definitely a lot below 800$. ^^
Hope you can get your blythe, too. they are really photogenic!
