Calling out the CPKs

Comment with the name(s) of your Cabbage Patch Kids and their birthdays. Come on, I'm talking about my generation. I know you had one, or maybe more.

I had Megan Arlene, brown hair and brown eyes, birthday Sept.1. Also Claire Muriel, blonde hair and blue eyes, birthday also Sept.1.

I got them in 1984 and 1985.

Happy belated 23rd and 22nd birthdays to my girls. I wonder where in the heck they are?

They ar in mom & dad's attic and I can't believe you remember that.

OH, my gosh! I don't remember! I think mine is around here somewhere, for my girls to play with. LOL! I remember my MEAN brothers called her "rock" because she was a preemie and she was bald, and they used to hit her head on things to prove it was hard as a rock.

On another note, I've gotten my girls each one, and they don't like them, or play with them, EVER!

I had 4 all together, but I can only remember one of the names at the moment. Marissa Opal. And I believe her birthday was Sept 1st also. I still have mine...the girls are playing with them..LOL So much for them being worth something. Oh and one had glasses and one a pacifier.

Oh, Mary, are you kidding? I was completely obsessed.

One time we lined up all the CPKs between our family and our friends' family and we counted up something like $1000 worth of CPKs. That is just nuts.

Others I can remember: Mike's had auburn loop yarn hair and was named Allan. Heather K's was a bald preemie with two teeth, named Babette.

One year for Christmas, my older sister (who was then probably 17-18) asked for "Tall, dark and handsome." Santa left her a dark haired CPK with a note that said it was the best he could do.

Oh man, I have no idea what their names were. My first CPK was a boy. It's a funny story how I got him. My neighbor had a friend of a friend who worked at a hardware store. They got a shipment of CPK by mistake. They put them in their back room. We had to give the manager a code word to go in the back. They were lined up on two shelves. It seemed that they went on forever. I walked up and down the boy section trying to decide which one to get. I finally decided on one that had short blond hair and brown eyes. They put the doll box in a larger box and told us that we could not open the box till we were out of the parking lot. It was all very covert, lol. I think I paid $40 of my own money. I am pretty sure I have the adoption papers somewhere. I do still have two of the CPK I had as a child, one is a redheaded girl and the other a bald preemie who has starred as Jesus in 3 nativity plays at church.

I never got a real cabbage patch doll. My mom went the cheepee route and bought me a Doll Baby. Total knock off. It had the baby powder scent and the toothless grin, but it was clearly, not a cabbage patch. In fact, this whole post is bring up all sorts of bad feelings again:)

*sniff* I never had a cabbage patch doll and I always wanted one! never even got a knock off, in fact. But then again, I was a little older when they came around.

Baby boy, born in May whose name was Jesse (I think... or I could be confusing it with my brother whose name is Jesse :)

I think I have him in my Ceder Chest.. I also still have Tender Heart Care Bear who is lucky enough to sit atop my Cedar Chest.

AND i had Care Bear and CPK sheets that I would change out every week... on week the bears... one week the CKP... haven't thought about that in forever! :)
