Gifts of Christ­mas past

Metro Canada (Winnipeg) - - BUSINESS - DAVID GOLD­MAN/THE AS­SO­CI­ATED PRESS

Col­lec­tor Dianne Ad­cock car­ries out three Cab­bage Patch Kids from around 1980 after they re­ceived a bath at Baby­land Gen­eral Hos­pi­tal, the birth­place of Cab­bage Patch Kids, in Cleve­land, Ga. Thirty years after they sparked a na­tion­wide frenzy, Cab­bage Patch Kids still have avid fans. Newer hand- stitched dolls start at about $225 US, but dolls dat­ing to be­fore the mass-mar­ket frenzy can sell for tens of thou­sands of dol­lars.
