Happy Birthday, Cabbage Patch Kids!

Oh, remember your first Cabbage Patch Kid, and how very special it was? I do, I do! My doll's name was Lucy. Actually, her birth certificate said her name was like, Elizabeth Victoria but I wanted to call her Lucy, so there you go. She had brown hair just like, me, in two pig-tails, and wore a blue dress. I loved her so much! I also hated the 'fake' Cabbage Patch Kids - you could spot them so easily! The true way to find out one was fake, though - look on the bum for the signature! (No Xavier Roberts? FAKE DOLL!) Then Cabbage Patch Kids came out with the dolls with the silk hair... oh, so soft! I think I had one of those, too, and a baby one. Then I got too old for them, but still, they rocked!

"Cabbage Patch Kids, growing in the garden, Cabbage Patch Kids, growing in the sun... now the most important thing about a Cabbage Patch Kid - is that they each grow up to be a special one!" Don't even ask me how I remember that song... or this one:

"Otis Lee... Otis Lee... " yeah, that's all I remember from that one. He was the cute bald boy doll, and I think I had a crush on him.

Can you believe they've been around for 25 years? WOW!

LOL...I remember those songs. My mom bought me the Cabage Patch Kids album "Cabage Patch Dreams" I listened to it all the time. Good ol' Otis Lee :)

Man, that makes me feel so old...

I actually never had a CPK doll. My mom thought they were ugly and refused to buy me or my sisters one.

I probably should be in therapy to get over the trauma...
