My experience with Ebay is that you have to look at the sellers reviews and get an idea of their reputation. If they have positive reviews and people seem to be pleased with the products they are shipping, you will probably be happy too. Also, if the item is not new, I always like to see a picture of the actual item before I bid. Sometimes, they will put a generic picture in the listing that they got off of the web and it's not the actual doll they are selling. I'm fine with a generic picture if the item is new in package but I've noticed that some sellers don't always state the condition of the item honestly when it is used and they have a generic photo in the listing. I hope that helps!

Hi,

I like to see that there is another collector of dolls
in this forum if I understand it right.
Do you collect any Andrea ???:biggrin:

I don't. I've actually never even seen these dolls, but they are so cute. My daughters would love them!

OMG, you are the best older sister! Blythe rocks. For ebay, I agree with goldscraps, you need to check the seller's feedback. They usually give you an option to add insurance to shipping which is a very good idea, especially for tracking. If you don't want to bid, a lot of items have a 'buy it now' price. If you are going to bid, you can set the maximum price that you'd like using 'automatic bidding'- check out the details on this page: http://pages.ebay.com/help/buy/aboutbidding.html
And tell your sis she can get handmade Blythe clothes at etsy.com (my fave).
Happy shopping!!

Yes, Blythe is indeed very pretty and so are the Ball-
Jointed-Dolls. You can sit them in all possible positions.

The bad thing is that they are rather expensive and
certainly not suitable for kids in a young age.
