Doll Trivia

 

Artist Xavier Roberts first designed his soon-to-be-famous Cabbage Patch dolls in 1977 to help pay his way through school. They had soft faces and were made by hand, as opposed to the hard-faced mass-market dolls, and were originally called Little People.

I remember the craziness. That and Beanie Babies - my aunts had a climate controlled cabinet for their collection...

We took Leslie to the Cabbage Patch Doll Hospital in Northern GA where they were made and had display rooms of dolls like a schoolroom. It was fabulous!
