If you are old enough you remember when the first Cabbage Patch doll came out in the early ’80s. The original dolls were all cloth and sold at local craft show and then became available in the public market where they were all the rage. I remember actually making a Cabbage Patch doll from a pattern. After they were so popular and many people couldn’t buy them, someone came out with the pattern and we made them in sewing circles and through church groups.
Today Cabbage Patch dolls have evolved to become more durable so kids can play with them and Moms don’t have to worry that they won’t last from tiny hands handling them all day. Cabbage Patch dolls now have cloth bodies and vinyl heads.
Cabbage Patch Kids Babies are a new variety of the original Cabbage Patch doll and offer a large variety of hair and eye colors, silky hair and removable fashions. They still come in a birth certificate like the original, that includes one-of-a-kind-name, birth date and adoption papers.
Cabbage Patch Baby comes in his or her own pajamas or onesie outfit, matching blanket and special Cabbage Patch Kids cabbage leaf, bottle and pacifier.
