I am curious to know if anyone remembers whether this is the same doll that was advertized on the back page of many comic books back in the day. There was usually either sea monkeys or a certain doll that I believe was the Blythe Doll. Anyone with the same recollection?

The blythe dolls were advertised on the backs of comic books. I have seen people selling original copies of the ads on ebay. ^-^

I had a Blythe doll, must have been when I was 7 or 8. I got her for Christmas, and my parents made the mistake of not directing me to open the DOLL first, and I opened an outfit for her before learning that I had the doll. Very exciting! Her eyes changed color each time you pulled the string. The eyes were HUGE, in fact she had a big head compared to the rest of her. This was the first Christmas gift that I remember being REALLY excited about.

You won't believe this but, my sister put one of these on ebay a few years ago and someone in Japan paid over $1000 for it.

Are these the same dolls that are on E-Bay that sell for hundreds of dollars and have huge eyes? I'm surprised how popular they are.

My older sister gave me a blonde Blythe doll for a Halloween present. (Yep, I said Halloween present). I loved that doll so much. A few years back I found an Ashton-Drake repro of her in a Betty's Attic catalog. I was thrilled! She is proudly displayed in my toyroom.

The Nov., 1972 issue of Archie Comics has an ad for Blythe (Kenner). There were four different dolls, each with unique hair style and color. Interchangable wigs were available, along with tons of outfits and accessories. Blythe dolls were most notorious for eyeballs that could change color, using a device in back of doll's head. These were made until 1974.
