Friday Flashback...the Cabbage Patch Doll

Daniela Helona this is for you. OMG the love I had for this beautiful brown piece of plastic is ridonculous (which according to Kenn is way past ridiculous). Yeah, I wanted a CPD so badly and imagine my shock, wonder and joy when she was under my tree on Christmas day. I mean if I could have had anything in the world then she was definately it. Just perfect. Her purple dress trimmed in pink with matching bloomers, absolutely gorgeous. I loved her.

She wouldn't be the last of my Cabbage Patch Dolls but she holds a special place in my heart because she was the first. Yes, they still make these cuties but nothing compares to when they hit the scene and everyone had to have them. The story goes that my Momma and her sister drove to some distant Toy's R Us and waited in a ridonculous line to get them for their daughters, yeah we are loved like that!


  1. Oh My...what a memory. My CPD was named Shannon. Yes I named her after my sister. But I just had to have that CPD and it appeared on some Christmas morning in the 80s. I took that adoption certificate quite seriously too. Funny memory.

  2. Yeah those were the days. Can't believe the lines.... If you really miss her we can work something out.

  3. I remember my first CPD too! My Dad helped me name her some hideous name, Petronila. I used to take her EVERYWHERE. They're ugly dolls but in my opinion, not as ugly as Bratz dolls.
