I was kind of young to remember the frenzy that Cabbage Patch Kids brought around christmas time but my mother remembers the rush very well.

Oh yes. I had three of them - one of the regular ones that had red hair, one preemie, and one Koosa (the animal friends, mine was a cat).

I used to play with these all the time. My kom kept their birth certificates in a photo album for me. I had one that looked like a clown, Gaby (yellow pigtails), Ray (short brown hair and a light brown suit), Heidi, and several others that I can't remember their names.

I still have my first 2 I got when I was really little. My mom took a knife and cut open a hole so Misty my doll could have a pacifier this was before they came out with them. My mom said she saw it in the store a few months before Christmas and thought Id enjoy this little red haired doll. When Christmas came around and people were going crazy like when tickle me elmo came out, she was glad she bought it early. Ive started re-collecting all the dolls I ever wanted and furniture but my collection is in the early stages there is still so much out there I want to collect for just the CKP's. I hope you all enjoy the pics!

we were too poor to afford one when they first came out, but when my older sister got her first real job a few years after the main craze, she used her very first paycheck to buy me one. The doll was named Noel on the tag and had brown hair and eyes and she was dressed all in yellow with little white shoes. She smelled sooooo good, a little like baby powder. I still have her! And two Koosas, a dog and a cat.

We were too poor to be able to afford a cabbage patch kid but I wanted one sooo badly! I ended up "babysitting" them at recess when a girl who had one wanted to play on the swings or whatever! :) I was finally able to get one from my grandma and a Koosa cat from my Grandpa. Thank God for grandparents!!

I was 6 when I got my first one and I still have her which makes her about 23 years old. Her name is Nia. She's gone a bit bald and the stitching of her feet and hands has come off. I can't bear to chuck her though.

Wow, I had so many of these. I remember when they first came out and people were literally scrambling and FIGHTING to get one. It was in 1982 or 1984...can't remember exactly. I loved the way these dolls smelled and the cute names they had! Sometimes I would pick a certain doll based on it's name!

Having turned 8 years old when the first CPK's came out, I of course begged my parents for one! They said that they were ugly, and wouldn't let me have one...even after I saved up my Christmas and Birthday money to buy my own. So, I never had one when the craze was going on. Shortly before my 16th birthday, in 1991, my mom and I were going around to some local antique stores, and I found a MIB CPK from 1983. So, I again started begging. Little did I know that I would get my wish, and that's when my collection first started. After I got married, I came across three CPK's in a thrift store, and that's when I really started collecting. Every week my husband and I would go to thrift stores in search of more CPK's for my collection. It soon grew to over 200, all dating between 1983 and 1987! My husband didn't like to go into my collection room, because he didn't like 400+ little eyes staring at him...LOL! I now have only about 15 or so Kids, as I sold most of my collection. I kept my most favorite ones, as I couldn't part with them all!

I wanted one of these so bad X-Mas of 1984. I was so sure Santa was going to bring one for me...and he didn't and I was CRUSHED. I ended up getting my first the Christmas of 1985, her name was Tisha Clara. That was like the best Christmas ever. She went to the movies with me that night to see Back To The Future (Geez that was a long time ago). Years later my Mom told me her and my Dad stood in line forever to get me one that first Christmas and they were sold out everywhere.

I got my first one back in 1984. My family had no luck finding one in 1983. I still have her, and the other four kids I had as a child. I am now 32 and have collected them since the age of 24. I have atleast 75 of them. They are all MIB. Coleco is not the only factory that produced them. They were produced for the European, Japanese, and South African markets as well.

I got my first one in 1984 when I was 4 - I won him (Lyle) for selling more Candles in Preschool than anyone else!!! Two years later, I got Joellen (she was from Holland, had a passport and everything). When I travelled to visit family across the country 2 years later, I brought her with, because she was such an "experienced" traveller!! I still have them both and the other 3 I collected later!!!

I still have my two CPK's - my Kid and the preemie with the bald head and pacifier. My kid has blond short hair and blue eyes and came in a flowered shorts outfit. I was so traumatized because people would say she looked like a boy, so my mom put bows in her hair. I got her after the Christmas craze in the summer and mine was the only one she could get her hands on! At the Christmas craze in 1983, she had one that looked just like me with brown hair and brown eyes but some lady ripped it out of her hands when my mom was in line to pay for it! Nutty! I loved that smell they had. I actually just bought one today for my friend's daughter whose turning 3. She's adorable and has the cornsilk hair.

I still have all 3 Cabbage Patch Kids that I got. I got my first one when I was 1 (in early 1992). I have no idea what her real name was but I named her Alison. Later, I also gave her the middle name Alice. She wore pink-striped footy pajamas and was bald except for a little yellow tuft of hair on her head. When my brother was born (when I was 2), my parents got me Owen something--a baby boy. I changed his name to Nicholas and later gave him the middle name James (after my brother). He is bald and wears an airplane-decorated sleeper thing with no legs. When I was five, I saw a CPK at Toys R Us that I just HAD to have. So, for Christmas of 1995, my uncle and aunt gave it to me. I named her Nicole Katelyn--a reversal of my cousin's first and middle name. I still love my CPKs, and they show it. I lost the birth certificates over time, but I can still remember how important those little pieces of paper were.

I got my CPK for Christmas one year. Her name was Xora Mae, it took me a week to figure out how to pronounce it. My mom bought her for me because she was from Texas and thats where we were from.

I was only a year old when the Cabbage Patch Kids made their first debut, so I don't remember them then or the big rush to get out to get them. My uncle told me I got me my first one, even though I don't remember. We had a Cabbage Patch game for the Coleco, I had a Sippin Baby one, one dressed like a chick, and the bunk bed. I don't have the bunk bed anymore or the other stuff. But I do have a few of the newer dolls and books from a book sale.

Miranda - March 03, 2008 - Report this comment
The first year they were available, my mother had to order one from the manufacturer because stores could not keep them in stock. So my first CPK doll came in an unmarked brown cardboard box (no fancy packaging like the ones on the toy store shelves), and we had no choice what race/sex the doll would be. We were just lucky to get one that was available. So, to my surprise, I got a boy with dark brown curly hair, and brown eyes wearing red sweats and blue and white sneakers, named Armstrong. He came with his "birth certificate" of authenticity, and I still have him to this day.
Miranda - March 03, 2008 - Report this comment
I also remember that my sister and I got the "newborn" babies CPK's for x-mas one year. By the following summer, the insides of their plastic heads were covered in green polka dots, that multiplied in number. It was mold. We could only figure it had something to do with the baby powder scent in the plastic. We both had to throw our dolls out.

I was born in '83 so I don't remember the CPK craze at all, but I do know that my mom worked some magic and got CPKs for my brother and I fairly close to the craze. My brother's first doll was named Lincoln Judd. We call him Sonny, and I've got him now. My first doll was named Tina and unfortunately she was given away. She was a #4 headmold with brown eyes and no hair. Oh yeah, she was a preemie (hence being bald). Don't worry; I definitely made up for losing her! My mom also managed to get twins, a boy and a girl, for my brother and I. My girl is named Helena Beth and the boy is named Simon Leland. Helena Beth is a #6 headmold with lemon color hair and blue eyes. She went through a LOT with me when I was a kid. She has had a hair cut (severely) and has "makeup" on. LOL. Simon is a #2 headmold with lemon hair and blue eyes. He's nearly mint. I have both CPKs now. I like to say that since I was born in 83, the year of the craze I AM a cabbage patch kid. lol. I am now a Cabbage Patch collector with over 100 'kids. My collection started with my original girl Helena and my brother's two. Then my cousin gave me two of her originals, and then I hit the garage sale circuit. Although my collection has much variety (I've got Soft Sculptures, Coleco Kids, Play Along Kids, Mattel Kids, and Hasbro Kids) most of my collection is Coleco Kids. I don't know, I guess the Colecos to me are just more magical because they were made in the 80s. By the way, as they say in Babyland General Hospital- Doll is a four letter word (they are 'kids).

I think that I had a Cabbage Patch that had some real doll hair instead of the yarn! I don't think I have her anymore, but I remember it being dressed in a beautiful baby blue dress with white lacey tights. I think it came with a comb and curlers too. If my memory is accurate I think her name was Toya Tiffany. She had the most beautiful raven curls which I probably destroyed with an actual curling iron!!

I remember my mum taking me to Hamleys, London, just before xmas 1984, I think that was when the craze hit the UK! I received a blonde girl, head mold #1 with pigtails that xmas! I took her everywhere with me, I was only eight. Then the following year I received a bald boy with a bit of hair and paci, head mold #4 for my birthday. I regret to say that I chopped the hair off my beautiful little girl! :( I still had her up until a couple of years ago when we were moving and she was in a bit of a mess so I decided it was time to let her go! My little bot ended up with all these spots on his head! Does anyone know what they are??

Tammie, more than likely they are Cabbage Pox. It is a mold growing inside his head. There may be a way to remedy this, perhaps someone else knows?

Does anyone else have one of the Little People? That's what CPK's were called in 1978 when they first came out and they were all plush including the head? My grandma bought one the year I was born and planned on giving it to me when I got older. Then she forgot where she put it.....I just received it now, 30 years later! I still have my Preemie (Lexie Bethanie) and my Spain World Traveler (Celicia Patty). I remember the craze in the early 80's when we all wanted them for Christmas and there were riots in the streets!!! Good Times!!!

Does anyone remember the mini Cabbage Patch Kids? I'm not sure if that's what they were actually called. They looked exactly like the regular sized dolls, but they were probably about 3 inches tall, were made of hard plastic, and had yarn pigtails. Their arms and legs were moveable, so you could stand them up or sit them down. I probably had a good dozen of them or so... Anyone remember???
SZA - October 15, 2008 - Report this comment
Yes, TarHeelErin, I remember these - I had a couple as a kid, too. They also had "display cases" for the dolls that you could hang on your wall, remember? They were kind of shaped like an arch and padded around the edge in gingham plaid - included some type of backround scene for you to display your mini Cabbage Patch doll.

TarHeel Erin, I remember the mini CPK dolls too. I had several as well and I think they first came out in about 1987 or so. I also had eleven of the regular CPKs, including one my Nana made for me named Suzy Q. I had several newborns preemie, and a cornsilk one. My mom's boss managed to get one for me for Christmas 1983 and my Nana had gotten one too so I actually got two! I felt like the luckiest kid in the world! I still have them, the carrier, and a bunch of clothes. Unfortunately, they have Cabbage Pox.

I now know what the spots are, they are called pox and the reason they are there is due to the baby powder that was put into their heads when they were made, to make them smell nice!!! I've just bought a couple of the 25th anniversary dolls and they smell of baby power too, so lets hope that they don't end up with these horrible looking spots!! You'd have thought that the Cabbage Patch people would have learnt from the first time aroung, wouldn't you??!!!

I had three real Cabbage Patch kids and one knock-off. One of my real ones was an original (with the yarn hair). I had picked her out of a line-up of them at Kaybee Toys when I was 5. Her name was Melissa (like me) and she had red hair, a tooth, and green eyes. She didn't look like me but I wanted her. She wore a yellow dress. My second doll was a Corn Silk kid (it had "real" hair you could brush). She had brown hair and wore a gingham orange and brown outfit. My third was a baby who smelled like baby powder. She wore a peach colored jumper and had a little bonnet. These were great dolls if not a bit strange looking. I loved mine.

My sister and I both had girl Cabbage Patch Kids, mine with black hair and hers I think was blond. I remember the day I stopped playing with her, though. When I was taking a bath, I decided to bathe her too and wash her hair... in the middle of doing this, a dead bee came out of her body!! XD I screamed and jumped up in horror at the sight of it floating around in my bathwater. I don't know why or how it got in there in the first place, but oh man I never touched that doll again.

I wasn't born for the first craze of cabbage patch dolls, but my sister, who's three years older was, and my aunt got into the madness to get her a doll for christmas. Later on we had a double birthday party and we both received our own "Birthday kids" dolls. For whatever reason I don't remember mine's name but my sister's doll's name was Erma. I've been looking everywhere to find pictures or info on the other cpk dolls we both received for Christmas one year. They were called the "Sippin Kids." Kelsey's had a bib with a giraffe, a pink bottle of milk, and auburn hair (named Sonia). Mine was a brunette named Beatrice :) with a dog bib and a purple bottle of orange juice. You would squeeze them and they burped. Something tells me I lost accessories for mine because my sister treated her dolls better...still frustrates me today, lol.

My mom bought me one in '84 cause it was the year I was born. She waited till I was 3 to give it to me. I still have her. She's been REALLY loved and it shows, but I still have the yellow outfit she came in. I've lost the shoes and sweater since then and her bow came out very early on. But her birth certificate is around here somewhere and amazingly she still has the cabbage patch tag that they sewed into the side of her.

I was born in 1980 so I was 5 when the CPK craze hit. I got a blond girl in a pink dress named Lanie Anne Sandy. She went EVERYWHERE with me! A few years later, my mom bought me a preemie with the white outfit and funny ears. It was stolen the very next day! I decided, at some point, that Lanie needed eyeglasses (like the cartoon CPK). I drew them with sharpie. Well, my dad tried to remove it and her eyes came off too. I only had about 8 CPK's total, but Lanie was always my favorite.

I was lucky enough to have a birthday RIGHT when Cabbage Patch's were the craze. I got one. I still have it in it's original clothes. My mom hunts at Flea markets, and she used to come across originals in their box's all the time. She couldn't resist buying them....and now I have a closet full of them! Don't really want them...but don't have the heart to part with them.

I was born in 1993, and I have 3 cabbage patch kids. The first one I ever had was back in 1997, but I ended up losing her somehow. I got another one in December 2004, and he was white, had blue eyes, a tuft of auburn hair, and he burped when you squeezed him. My mom's friend got him from a thrift store, and he had no clothes or birth certificate. We didn't even know if he was a boy or a girl at the time. My mom just called him Junior just to be safe. I wasn't satisfied with that name, so I experimented with different names like William, Jake, Thomas, and even Angus, because I thought he looked like Angus T. Jones. I eventually named him Maxwell, and bought him a blue and white stripped outfit from Walmart. He even has a little care bear that I got in a happy meal, and his name is "Boo Boo Bear." My other 2 are named Miles and Amber. Miles is a dark-brown complected boy with a black afro, and he has on a red and blue soccer uniform with a big soccer ball on the shirt. He also has blue thick, soft plastic shoes, and a blue baseball cap. Amber is white, but she has more of a tan complexion. Her hair is a sandy color, and it is thick. She is a "birthday kid", and she came with a dress that had "Happy B-day" written all over it. I got her from a thrift store too, and she had no papers. If you push on her stomach, air comes out of her mouth.

When I was a little girl my mom bought me about 2 or 3 a year. Always one for my birthday and usually 2 for christmas. I am now 34 and still love these dolls. Unfortunately , we had a house fire when I was 12 and all my beautiful collection burned up. I can still remember all the melted doll heads when we went back to see the house. Luckily, they were the only lives lost. After the fire my mom bought me a couple more but to me they will never be able to fill the space of the ones I lost. Kind of sounds silly but when I was young these dolls were my most cherished posession. I was their little mommy. A few years back me and my mom were at a local Walmart store looking at the dolls for my daughter. I could not beleive it when I saw a cabbage patch doll with my name. Not only my first name, but my middle name as well. To this day my mom swears that they made her for me...the little girl who lost all of her beautiful dolls!! Did I also mention that she had blonde hair and blue eyes like me. The doll did not have my same B-day, she has my brothers exact date-May 13th. Just thougt I would share that neat story.

I didn't like dolls when they first came out. I thought they were pretty ugly and really didn't understand the nation's infatuation with them. Eventually I got two of them and didn't even have to spend a dime for them. The first I got was a little Preemie wearing a blue potato sack type dress that tied at the end. The second was a clown with yellow hair that my mom won at her church's autumn festival.

I just found my old Cabbage Patch Preemie doll at my grandmother's house. I remember being soooo mad on Christmas when I took her little hat of to find a bald head with one little patch of hair at the top. Then someone told me she was a preemie like my baby cousin was at the time, and told me that she needed extra care because she was so small, and made me feel bad!!

I grew up in the Uk, and Cabbage Patch Kids were really popular when they first came out, but this was nothing compared to the obsession that American kids had with them. I went to an American school for a while, during 5th grade, and the girls brought them to school every day, some in carry cots, some in back packs, and there was a special area just for the dolls to sit during classes. There was one girl who was completely in love with hers and talked about it like it was a real child. Scarily, she looked remarkably like her Cabbage Patch Kid, so who knows.....I never got given one, my mother thought they were hideous (I was like "So? You don't have to play with it yourself), but I am thinking of buying one now, just for me. Also, TIP # 1 for Cabbage Pox/mould spots on Cabbage Patch Kids Heads: Try rubbing it with some neat Clove oil on a soft cloth in the affected area, and leave for a few days.

My Grandmother sent my mum one of the first Cabbage Patch dolls created in 76, they were first called Little People and I believe are rather valuable. Unfortunalty for easier postage my Grandmother removed her from her box and tossed it away!!!! She also sent the magazine which had a whole write up about Xavier Roberts so thats kept with the doll, who has never been played with and has her birth cert and other papers, so if only we had the box would be worth a bit! I myself had four Cabbage Patches. The first I opened up and saw her name and it was the same as my Nanas, Hazel! The last one is from 90 or 91 a boy with red hair called Freddy who I was too old to be interested in so he became my 3 year old sons cabbage patch, I found his birth Cert not long ago and what a coincidence to find that my son birthday and Freddys are the same - 15 May. Also in 1989 when we took a trip to the States we stopped at babyland General Hospital where I got to name a cabbage right out of the patch. Named her after me, Tiffany Rebecca, my dad went and asked how much she was and fresh out of the patch they were $100!! So we didnt get her :( Hope shes been well looked after by some lucky person!!!!

Back in '83 I worked for Motorola. Near Christmastime, two other ladies I worked with wanted CPK for their daughters, but didn't have the time to go to Toys R Us and stand in line for them, so they gave me the money and a "finder's fee" to get them for them. They gave me the gender, hair and eye color they wanted. I had a friend that worked as an assistant manager at Toys R Us, and she put aside the ones I needed. When I picked them up, other people that were waiting were mad that I just went in and got the dolls without having to wait. Downside of this is that I didn't get a doll for myself. I was sorry that I didn't, but made that Christmas very happy for two co-worker's little girls.

I remember the commercials for these started airing in the late spring/early summer (I think 1983) but I never saw them until the following fall. My mother and I were in Toys R Us when an employee opened a box with about 12 of them. All of a sudden there was a mob surrounding them. Between us my mother and I managed to get our hands on four of them. I held two and my mom held two while I studied them all deciding which one I wanted. There was another lady hovering nearby waiting for me to choose so she could have one. I finally chose one with blond curls and the other lady pounced on the remaining three. She probably turned around and sold them for a hundred bucks a pop, but I was happy with my new doll :) Eventually I had about six of them.

The CPK memories.... priceless! To see my kids faces as christmas when they opened the cabbage patch was worth the time spent hunting and standing in lines. Guess I made the effort because I remember the disappointment when I was a child not getting a barbie for Christmas. It was expensive and too much money ($5 for the ponytail barbie in a box). I would go into the toy store just to look at her.
