Cabbage Patch Kids trace their origins back to 1978 when Xavier Roberts happened upon an enchanted Cabbage Patch. Soon children everywhere were captivated by these whimsical, cuddly dolls. By 1987, 90 million Cabbage Patch Kids had been mass-marketed, in more than sixty specialty lines, and produced by three U.S. toy companies (Coleco, Hasbro, Mattel) and four foreign manufacturers (Jesmar, Tsukuda, Tri-Ang Pedigree, Lili Ledy). This book spans the Cabbage Patch Kid doll-collecting phenomena of the 1980's with the chapters on Coleco Kids, Toddlers, Babies, and Preemies, foreign mass-produced dolls (from Japan, South Africa, Italy, Sweden, and Germany), the Coleco/Hasbro Designer Line, as well as the inclusion of the original and porcelain CPK's popcorn girls, transitionals, and poseables. In over 750 color photos, with pricing, and informative text, this book is sure to inspire others to dive into the fun, fantasy, and challenge of Cabbage Patch Kid collecting!
