le blythe dolls

based on wikipedia; blythe is a doll created in 1972 by designer allison katzman with the now-defunct U.S. toy company kenner. reportedly, she was modeled after drawings by margaret keane, similarly to many other dolls of the 60s and 70s. her most distinctive and notable feature were eyes that changed color with the pull of a string attached to the back of her head. due to a lack of interest, blythe dolls were only sold for one year in the U.S. (produced in hong kong), during 1972.
