One of the things my girls love most about staying at Opa and Oma is playing with mummy’s old toys. Care Bears, Dufti’s, Pin y Pon, the Klorofil tree, Polly Pocket… they’re a little worn and dusty and sometimes missing an arm or leg but it’s the special memories that count. Ever since the kids found out that the very first Cabbage Patch Kids doll was born in the same year as mummy they have been big fans of this 80’s toy trend and we’ve even adopted a few ‘younger’ dolls of our own in the past few years:
While my 35th birthday went by quietly this year the Cabbage Patch Kids family is celebrating in style and throwing a proper party with a festive range of Cabbage Patch Kids 35th Birthday ‘Lots of Licks’ Kids (RRP $79, ages 3+). The new Cabbage Patch Kids are available in a variety of ethnicities, hair colours and eye colours and these cuddly babies are available for adoption right now.
Once you’ve chosen your kid (or maybe I should say: once he/she has chosen you as their new mum or dad!) you will discover your baby’s unique name on their Birth Certificate and you can fill out the adoption papers to make it all official. Our newest family member is called Lenore, such a pretty name for a gorgeous girl! Miss Sybbie is totally smitten with the long red hair and she even has pink and white sneakers.
But there is more… if you look closely you’ll see that each ‘Lots of Licks’ Kid comes with a yummy party treat. Shaped like a heart these tasty lollipops are not only a hit with the Cabbage Patch Kids, the new pets in the Cabbage Patch love them too. Check out the Adoptimals:
Soft, cute and huggable the Cabbage Patch Kids ‘Lots of Licks’ Adoptimals (RRP 39, ages 3+) are totally pawsome. These friendly kittens and puppies love licking their ice-cream, just hold a treat in front of their little mouths to see their pink tongues in action, and they will steal a lick from their owners lollipop too whenever they can. I know I said no more pets, but maybe we can make room for that adorable tabby kitty?
Cabbage Patch Kids 35th Birthday ‘Lots of Licks’ Kids and Adoptimals are available from Big W, Myer and Target store across Australia and online.
