My first introduction to dolls really was when my brother bought be a Hatsune Miku Pullip. I found out later that Blythe had a version too… and she was translucent! She became a wishlist doll, but she slowly moved her way down, and sometimes out of the list. However, on a recent trip to Shanghai, I found her in one of the official Blythe stores… for an amazing price. Let’s meet Miku!
“I bought you a freaky-headed doll” my brother said, horrified.
Thus began my love of dolls. When I was little, dolls weren’t really my thing. I was definitely a stuffed teddy bear type. I did have two Barbie’s – one that was ‘Aerobic’ and did exercises, the other, was a barbie that went to sleep when you put a warm towel over her eyes.
