of Cabbage Patch Kids
In 1976, Xavier Roberts invented
'Little Person' dolls, the first Cabbage Patch Kids. Roberts was a teenager
when he started the Babyland General Hospital in Cleveland, Georgia, where
people could adopt a baby (the hand sewn dolls were never called dolls)
complete with adoption papers. Roberts and five friends started the Original
Appalachian Artworks company to produce the dolls. The Coleco toy company
liked Roberts' ideas and began mass-marketing the dolls in 1983, under
the new name of 'Cabbage Patch Kids.'
