So have you become a fan of the wide-eyed Blythe girls yet? These are the fashion dolls with the color changing eyes. Just pull the string on the back of her head…she closes her eyes…and different color eyes magically appear. Remember that the Blythes you see are referred to as “Neo Blythes” as the original Blythe dolls were only produced in 1972.
The Asian Butterfly Encore was originally released in Japan by CWC, and Hasbro has recently made the Neo Blythe doll available to collectors in the United States through their online store. The dolls sell for $89.99 through HasbroToyShop.com and are recommended for ages 7 and over.
