Takara “Blythe” Vino Toy

Our friend Ana noticed this Ebay auction: a Yamaha Vino for the Takara “Blythe” doll. It’s pretty neat, but I wondered how something like that could be “rare” already. Turns out they came out this summer, but they are actually pretty hard to find in Japanese stores, and were never sold in the U.S. YS Shop has some for $65, but you could buy a real Vino for that. The dolls themselves are pretty fab, too, in a mod-Keane kinda way.
