There are times in life when more than a few things don’t run smoothly and we become truly overwhelmed over long periods of time. Many people face mid-life crises where they feel a deep sense of regret about the direction their life has taken. Meanwhile, the stress in work and relationships can lead to feelings of almost permanent anxiety and low self-worth. Combined with COVID-19, it can be even worse.
It is in times like this when doing something completely new and watching it grow and give happiness to others can be totally life-changing. Building a business based around a creative and rewarding pursuit is the perfect way to do this. Finding a new purpose has saved many a marriage and a business that you own and operate as a labor of love has secured the sanity of many a soul.
Creating a doll business from scratch is just this sort of pursuit because it can be run from your garage. You’re putting your energies into making something really beautiful with real financial rewards along the journey. And if you can do something that brings other people joy, that brings joy to yourself. Giving to others has a wonderful way of freeing you from self-criticism and regret.
Some of the symptoms of clinical depression are feelings of being trapped within yourself, of being trapped in the past with past mistakes, past misfortunes and tragedies, and the world being permanently against you. Cognitive psychologists typically suggest and encourage positive lifestyle changes to counter this through therapy to create a fundamental and lasting shift in focus towards hopes and beliefs of a worthy life ahead. According to research, adult doll play has verified therapeutic benefits.
When we immerse ourselves in a hobby such as customizing and crafting dolls, we often reach a point called “flow”, whereby our sense of time is lost and we are truly at one with the subject at hand. This change in state is extremely therapeutic and engenders in us a feeling of wellness and pleasure from which the real world of work and relationships is so often so far removed. That’s why Blythe is truly an escape.
Your own business is about planning and dreaming. It’s about being deeply creative and getting ideas flowing and help from friends and a supportive community. All of these mental health benefits can be brought about through Blythe Dolls.

Long and seemingly endless hours of lockdown require a really addictive hobby to keep your mind occupied and focused. The thought of just any boring old task or past-time won’t get you excited and imaginative and it doesn’t do it for other people either. But Blythe Dolls are a movement with meaning. They are deeply...
Why are we attracted to dolls? A celebration of the bizarre, the beautiful and the uncanny is something central to Blythe Doll’s fandom. For many people, including kids, Blythe has an eerie quality.
