    I Was Cpk-less...

    I never had a Cabbage Patch Kid, but my cousin had one. I believe it was blonde haired, with blue-ish eyes, and of course wearing some sort of dress. But, what made this one a little different was it was able to eat plastic foods. Yep, that craze in the 90's for the "Eating CPK...

    What Great Times Those Were!

    My Childhood Buddy

    My family couldn't afford Cabbage Patch Kids, but my grandma bought me one. His name was Ned Wally, and I was about 8.  I took him everywhere with me. My step dad found out that throwing Ned against the wall was a funny way to make me cry, and my baby brother wrote on him...

    Red-headed Twins

    I had two red-headed twins, Jill and Suzy.  I don't know why I named them that.  I guess it was because I liked those names.  They had light blue dresses.  One had glasses and one didn't.  I used to pretend I had a beauty shop and fix their hair.  I...

    Handmade Dolls

    I remember having cabage patch dolls, but my mom couldn't afford to get the real ones, so she bought ones from ladies at work that made them.  They had the same heads and stuff, but the bodies were handmade.  I had 3 of them, plus one that was a half body sitting ontop...

    I hated them and I loved. I hated them because ALL my friends had one and I never did. I wanted one so badly, I felt so left out. I tried the usually tactics on my mum but nothing worked - I couldn't have one and that was that. The girls would bring them into school and play with...

    My Little Sister Had Them...

    My little sister had several...I thought they were the ugliest things.  Just another thing like the beanie babies (which were cute) but still way overpriced.  Toy makers trying to convince the adults that they would become collectors items.... Just goofy.

    The Craze
