In 1983, Cabbage Patch Kids*r inspired a nationwide craze unlike any toy before them, inviting children to "adopt" their very own Kid. Of course, parenthood is a real responsibility--a new baby needs toys, clothing, diapers, and countless other items! Coleco and a host of other toy companies were happy to supply a massive assortment of merchandise for these child "parents" that created a multi-million dollar market apart from the dolls themselves. Now this merchandise is part of a new Cabbage Patch craze among collectors. Here is a guide devoted entirely to the thousands of items surrounding the dolls, including doll furniture and clothing, jewelry, games, miniatures, and school supplies. The book includes almost 600 color photos and up-to-date pricing information.
