My Thoughts

I was sent the "Playful Girl" to review. This particular doll came wearing accessories that included a pink shirt, blue denim skirt, striped tights, underwear and a pair of pink shoes. The dolls eyes are brown and her hair is also a soft, wavy, silky brown. She is wearing a stylish blue hat that is securely fastened onto the top of her head, and I have not cut the tags to remove it. Her hair is styled in a side ponytail. She was customized with brown freckles and two bottom teeth. Just like the original Cabbage Patch Kids I had as a child, she has a plastic face, a soft body, and the authentic Xavier Roberts signature on her right butt cheek. The clothing has velcro closures, which allow the doll to easily be dressed and undressed. The plastic shoes have fairly large openings and are not difficult to put on the doll. She actually has a very sweet smell, which is not at all overpowering. My son has been dragging this fashion doll around the house by her two feet, pretty much naked, for months. Her body still remains soft and the fabric is not damaged at all. Her hair is slightly matted but I can easily use my fingers to release the tangles. This doll was accompanied by a birth certificate that included my name and her date of birth. She also had a card that included her likes (strawberries), favorite time of day (cuddle time), what makes her smile (chirping birdies outside the window) and talent (math).

My mother remembers the days that she stood in line waiting at the local toy store to buy my first Cabbage Patch Kid doll. Cabbage Patch Kids were such a coveted holiday toy that year and just like yesterday I can distinctly describe the features of my first Cabbage Patch Doll. For those of us with vivid childhood memories who would like to share them with our children, these new Cabbage Patch Kids Fashionalities dolls are a great way for young girls and boys to engage in pretend play, all while celebrating their unique personalities and talents in life.
