My fascination, or maybe obsession, with doll collecting, started a couple of years ago when I found a Kenner Blythe doll. I bought her to sell on eBay and make a quick profit, but when I got her home it didn't take me long to become quite enamored with her big head and color changing eyes. I had to know more.
My research of Blythe told me that she was an obscure product of the early 1970s that was discontinued after only one year. And my investigation turned up a couple of other dolls from that era that didn't quite make the grade - Peteena the Poodle in a Bikini, and Emerald the Enchanting Witch. Of course I had to have them. Blythe, Peteena, and Emerald were each were flops when they were first released, but now are coveted by collectors everywhere. Let me introduce you to my little troupe of collectible vintage dolls.
