I thought it'd be fun if we all shared pictures of our girls. 

Here's my Blythe family:

Lots more pics of my girls on my flickr.  I'm doing a 365 with Hazel (my mini me) so she's getting the most attention lately!

I just bought all five of the My Little Pet Shop Blythe's. I am so new to Blythe's that I am still learning all the lingo. I am still not sure what kind of Blythe I have. I do love them.

I am really going to follow this swap and I hope I can fill a swap slot too. I have no clue what to do in the Blythe world. Total newbie. Smiley

those are probably mini blythes.  I'm wondering if they can be unminied easily like the mini pullips.  i found the tiny body to be really awful.  might go pick one up...

Sure!  A 23 cm obitsu body is slightly larger than a Blythe body....comparable to a Pullip I think?  I'd love to see a picture of her!

What you have are petite Blythes.  I have three of those as well...one made by Takara (same as the full size "Neo" Blythes) and two of the Hasbro Littlest Pet Shop Blythes.  They are adorable, but oh so tiny!  I've never made clothes for them, but have knit a headband.  I need to pay more attention to them, though!

Full size Blythes are around 12" tall and the petites are around 4".
Here's a comparison shot:

Minis!!  I've heard that the Takara's are slightly thinner than the Hasbro ones.

I'm hoping to play!!  My girls love Valentine's day!

So, apparently, for anyone who is interested, you can get a blythe knockoff (blybe) from thailand on ebay for 25 plus shipping.  They look like exact copies, like they made a mold with actual blythe dolls.
