Ever since I was a little girl, I have loved Cabbage Patch Dolls. I can still remember the day that my father brought home a Cabbage Patch doll just for me. My hands were trembling as I took her out of the box and I could immediately smell the signature scent that they all come with, baby powder. Even though she had yarn for hair and was unlike any other doll that I had ever owned, I loved her.
She came with her own birth certificate which stated that her name was Christabella. I remember thinking that this was the most beautiful name in the world. Every single day, I changed her clothes and dressed her in baby clothes that my cousin had outgrown. In my mind, she was my baby and I was her mommy and nobody could tell me any differently.
This past Saturday, I had the opportunity to attend a media event to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Cabbage Patch dolls. I cannot even begin to describe to you what a blast from the past this event was. They had a display of all the Cabbage Patch dolls that have been sold over the years and they really have come a long way from having yarn hair.
The new Cabbage Patch dolls boast real hair and come in a multicultural variety with many skin tones and hair textures. I love how these dolls have evolved to reflect the diversity in society and in the families who purchase them for their children or to collect. I don’t think anyone will ever tire of Cabbage Patch dolls and, as you can see from the photos, they are still melting hearts and making memories as we speak…
