Cabbage Patch Kids

What an invention these dolls were!

I owned one as a youngster and remember it coming with its own birth certificate and interchangeable diapers and clothes.

Xavier Roberts created this collection of dolls in 1978 and they became one of the most popular range of dolls during the 1980s.

Numerous toy manufacturers produced them, from Coleco, Hasbro, Mattel to Toys “R” Us Kids.2

A cartoonist, Art Spiegelman, invented the evil “Garbage Pail Kids” trading cards in 1985, as a sort of spoof on the original Cabbage Patch Kids.
