|Dark-skinned Blythe was described on Aliexpress as "Super Black Blyth Doll."|
A birthday doll from me to me, brown Blythe was purchased from an Aliexpress seller where there are currently several offerings from different sellers -- search Black Blyth at that website or use the search link provided at the end of this post. My doll is shown above as she arrived "wearing her birthday suit" (nude). As mentioned in my previous post, she stands approximately 11 inches tall and has a mature bosom, which is blurred in this photo.
With the pull of the string located in the back of her head, Blythe's eyes change to gray, blue, hazel, and bright green with directions of either forward or to either side.
|The gray eyes glance to the doll's left.|
|With a forward stare, Blythe's eyes are blue.|
|When she looks to her right, Blythe's eyes are hazel.|
|Her bright green eyes stare forward.|
Blythe tried on several Sparkle Girlz fashions that she paired with shoes I purchased from an Aliexpress seller. The fashions are modeled next.
|One-piece, one-shouldered striped top with denim pants is worn with her white Mary-Jane-style shoes. Two white barrettes keep her curly Afro away from her face.|
|The same shoes are worn with most of the fashions Blythe tried. This is a two-piece fashion with a multicolored top with pink ribbon shoulder straps and yellow pants.|
|Blythe strikes a pose wearing the same fashion worn in the previous photo.|
|She looks cute in these one-piece shorts. Next, Blythe poses two additional times wearing this fashion.|
|I noticed that most of the Sparkle Girlz fashions I selected for Blythe to try on are yellow. This dress has a yellow bodice and a floral-print ruffled skirt.|
|Pink is the main color of the dress Blythe wears in this photo.|
|Blythe wears a pair of black shoes with the final dress, which has a multicolored top with bell sleeves and denim skirt.|
|Still wearing the fashion shown in the photo immediately above, Blythe models one of the two pairs of sunglasses she owns.|
Blythe dolls were created in the 1970s and sold in the states by Kenner. Black dolls were not included in the original line. Read more about the history of the dolls at the final link in this post. Before discovering the Aliexpress brown Blythe offerings, I purchased two "tan" complexioned Blythe dolls in 2015. Still longing for one with a deeper complexion than theirs, I had been tempted, only slightly, to have a white Blythe doll customized as a brown doll. Thank goodness I waited for my authentically brown Blythe, who poses with her sisters in the final two photos.
