The 14-inch tall Baby So Real is another attempt to revive the unbelievable popularity the original Cabbage Patch Kids toys enjoyed back in the ‘80s, but with some modern technology included to keep today’s kids interested. Thanks to sensors all over its body that respond to touch, tickling, and even games like Peek-a-Boo, the doll’s eyes can blink, look around, and respond to however a child is interacting with it.
Then, Corey and Chumlee travel down memory lane when a set of original Cabbage Patch Kids pop in. Will they make a play for these classic dolls or will they refuse to toy around? And then, when Rick buys a Porsche, the guys are convinced he is going through a midlife crisis. Is Rick just acting his age or has he officially gone over the hill?
Original Appalachian Artworks started in 1978 with Xaiver and five friends. Moving into a former medical clinic in Cleveland, Ga., they established Babyland General Hospital, where `Kids are not made but delivered as newborns from a Cabbage Patch assisted by "doctors" and "nurses." Babyland General Hospital, located 75 miles north of Atlanta, is still one of the top tourist attractions in Georgia with handmade original Cabbage Patch Kids available for adoption there for $190.00 and up.
Cabbage Patch Kids weren't even originally called Cabbage Patch Kids - they were first called Little People. They were all cloth dolls and sold at craft shows - an inauspicious start for what would become a certified craze. Schlaifer Nance & Company negotiated a licensing agreement with Coleco and the two created an entire brand - a logo, name, backstory and everything else needed to help turn the Cabbage Patch Kids into a virtual juggernaut of the 1980s. After Coleco launched its dolls, with beautiful packaging, individualized names, and birth certificates, little girls simply could not get enough of the dolls. Who wouldn't want to adopt a doll? They were irresistible!
