Oh yes, they did.

I received my first CABBAGE PATCH KID back in 1984 – the result of my parents not paying scalpers for one during the mad craze of 1983. I still have him – his name is Ollie – and he’s now a happy cousin to many other Cabbage Patch Kids here at Rock Father HQ, those owned by my daughters, and even one known as Baby Boy that was owned by my late friend, Justin Mentell. The dolls created by Xavier Roberts have had an interesting history, having been produced over the past 30+ years by Coleco, Hasbro, Mattel, Toys “R” Us, Play Along Toys, JAKKS Pacific… and now, Wicked Cool Toys. Just ahead of New York Toy Fair, the folks at Wicked Cool have officially been named the new master toymaker for the Cabbage Patch Kids brand – and I’ve got a sneak peek!

“Cabbage Patch Kids become friends for life. I have confidence Wicked Cool Toys will expand their footprint taking them to new and exotic locations and I’m excited to see their vision expressed through our Cabbage Patch Kids for millions of current and future fans.”Xavier Roberts

“Cabbage Patch Kids – recently accorded the status of one of the most influential toys of all times by Time Magazine – are one of the most recognized brands in the world, and we are honored Xavier Roberts and the Cabbage Patch Kids team entrusted us with this significant opportunity.

Cabbage Patch Kids are our top priority and we will continue creating excitement for both children and adults who have warmly embraced CPK for more than 30 years.”Michael Rinzler and Jeremy Padawer, Co-Presidents, Wicked Cool Toys
