Middie is Our Baby Girl ミディがもうすぐ生まれるよ!미디가 곧 태어나요!!

I don't have any photos today, but I wanted to talk a bit about our new little girl. Over 3 years ago, we at CWC wanted to conceive a new child. In 1999, Neo Blythe came to us,seeking a new home and so we adopted her. She assimilated well to her new environment, thriving in her new culture. When Petite entered the picture, she had physical restrictions and low self-esteem. We elevated her to a higher level and she stands proudly with Neo as her sister. Three years ago, as parents we contemplated the birth of a new child. Our own original child. Since both Neo and Petite were adopted, we thought we would give it a try. In a month, we will be able to share our new baby girl with you and the world. She is good. She is nice. She is pretty, coquettish and adorable. She will sit so nicely in your hands. She listens and she shows reaction, because she can look at you from three directions with a myriad of wonderful expressions. When she leaves her parents and finds a home with you, we hope you will love her as much as we do.

今日は写真はないんですが、私たちの新しい子、ミディの誕生秘話を少しお話しますね!もう3年以上も前から、私たちCWCは新しい子どもが欲しいなと考えていました。振り返れば1999年、まずネオブライスが海を越えてやってきて、お家を探していたので、私たちは彼女を養子に迎えました。彼女は新しい環境にもすぐになじみ、日本で受け入れてもらったお礼に、私たちに新しい文化を広めてくれました。続けてプチブライスがやってきました。プチちゃんは、生まれてすぐの頃、体の自由も少なく、自信もなさそうにひっそりとたたずんでいましたが、私たちが育てるうちに、目が開閉できるようになったり、靴をはけるようになったりとどんどん成長してゆき、今や立派にネオちゃんの妹分としてその地位を確立しましたね。
さて話は戻りますが、そんなこんなで3年前、親である私たちは、新しい子どもの計画を立てはじめました。ネオちゃんとプチちゃんを養子に迎え入れ、二人ともある程度成長した今こそが、ベストなタイミングなんじゃないかって!そしてとうとうあと1ヶ月もしないうちに、その子がついにあなたに、そして世界にお披露目になります!ミディはとってもいい子だし、可愛いし、コケティッシュで愛らしいんですよ。あなたの手の中に、ちょこんとおさまって座ってくれるんです。まるであなたの話を聞いているかのように、無数の表情を見せてくれるし、瞳の向きも、左右と正面の3方向を向くんです。
彼女が”親元”を離れ、あなたのおうちに迎えられたとき、あなたが私たちと同じように彼女のことを愛してくれることを、心から願っています。

오늘은 사진을 못 올리지만 우리의 새로운 아이! 미디의 탄생 이야기를 조금 할께요!
벌써 3년 전부터 저희 CWC는 새로운 아이를 갖고 싶다고 생각하고 있었습니다.
1999년 우선 네오 브라이스가 바다를 건너 새로운 집을 찾고 있었을 때 우리는 그녀를 양자로 맞이했습니다. 그녀는 새로운 환경에도 곧바로 친숙해졌으며 일본에서 받아 들여 준 답례로 우리에게 새로운 문화를 넓혀 주었습니다.
그 다음엔 쁘띠 브라이스가 저희를 찾아 왔습니다. 쁘띠가 태어났을 땐 몸의 자유도 적고 자신도 없는 것 같아 잠시 중단 하였습니다만 다듬어 주면 다듬어 줄 수록 눈을 떴다 감았다가 할 수 있게 되거나 구두를 신을 수 있게 되는 등 조금씩 조금씩 성장하여 지금은 훌륭한 네오의 동생으로 그 지위를 확립했어요.
그리고 다시 미디브라이스로 이야기로 돌아 가자면 여러가지로 3년전 부모인 우리는 새로운 아이의 계획을 세우기 시작했습니다. 네오브라이스와 쁘띠브라이스를 양자로 맞아들여 두 사람이 어느 정도 성장한 지금이말로 베스트인 타이밍이 아닌가는!
그리고 드디어 앞으로 한달도 남자 않은 지금 그 아이가 마침내 당신에게 그리고 세계에 공개 됩니다! 미디는 매우 좋은 상냥하며 귀엽고 요염하며 사랑스러워요. 당신의 손에 딱 맞게 앉을 수 있답니다.마치 당신의 이야기를 듣고 있는 것 같이, 무수한 표정을 보여 주고, 눈동자의 방향도, 좌우와 정면의 3 방향을 향합니다.
그녀가 부모를 떠나 당신의 집을 찾았을 때는 당신이 우리와 같이 그녀를 사랑해 주는 것을, 진심으로 바라고 있습니다.

  6. It's difficult to explain the process we have to endure to create each style of Blythe that comes out. The first concept design never gets made exactly. All of the restrictions, tests, factory problems, are like battles and the solutions we come up with are also a creative process. If we are allowed to make the exact design as we originally perceived, then I guess it would be like a custom doll. It's funny how most manufactured items only take only a month to be mass produced on the factory line. Whereas, it takes us literally 14 to 18 months to produce one of our ladies because we try to stick as closely as possible to our original plan. But even then, a lot of our ideas have to be cut and edited because of high prices from the factory. Thanks for listening, my friends.

  8. I am looking forward to knowing more of Middie :)
    I didn't know Petites were adopted... Does that mean they were a Hasbro idea?
