When I was 8 years old, all I wanted for Christmas was a Cabbage Patch Kid. Me and all of the other 8 year old on the planet. I guess they had a pretty good connected with Santa, because magically on Christmas morning, she was there!
I’m sure Santa had a hard time during the Christmas of 1983. Cabbage Patch Kids were the big “must have” present that year.
My CPK dolls had been a part of many of my childhood memories. Just last summer, a friend of mine got married. She and I have known each other since we were 3 and we shared many memories that included our CPK dolls. My doll made a special appearance during my speech at her wedding.
When I was invited to the kickoff event for the 30th Anniversary of Cabbage Patch Dolls, I was so excited! These dolls continue to be a part of so many little girls lives and to be able to celebrate such a milestone is amazing.
Jakks was thrilled to help kick-off the Make-A-Wish season of giving with a $5,000 cash donation as well a commitment for a season of partnership with toys and fund raising.
