A Celebration for Every Season
Since their creation, the hand-stitched folk art we now know as Cabbage Patch Kids have brought joy to children and families for generations. Visit the BabyLand General Hospital in Cleveland, Georgia and witness the birth of a “Newborn”. Learn about Cabbage Patch Kids’ rich history and adopt a hand-made Original called Little People® or a BabyLand Exclusive Cabbage Patch Kid or Newborn ready to become a part of your family.
Many of today’s parents probably remember having a Cabbage Patch Kid when they were children. There’s a certain kind of nostalgia that gives us the warm fuzzies as we cradle our well-worn or “loved” childhood Cabbage Patch Kids.
The magic a Cabbage Patch Kid brings to a family’s life is special, and the Cabbage Patch where it all started in Cleveland, GA still has plenty of Cabbage Patch Kids up for adoption, making them a treasure for generation after generation. This year, we’ve got 12 reasons your kiddos should be celebrating every season at BabyLand General® Hospital.
