Dolls with adoption papers are worth more
The original dolls sold for RRP $30 in the 80s but today, some Cabbage Patch Dolls with birth certificates and adoption papers are fetching into the hundreds.
A 1986 Cabbage Patch Doll called Anna Greta with double popcorn red hair, adoption papers and a pacifier sold for $810 on April 6 this year.
You'll get more for a doll with original features
The very first Cabbage Patch Kids (called Little People) had soft bodies and large thumbs. Later versions had plastic bodies and regular sized digits.
Older dolls also had woollen hair as opposed to the synthetic strands on newer versions.
And not all of them are worth hundreds of dollars but some definitely are.
What price will your Cabbage Patch Kid fetch?
Cabbage Patch creator Xavier Roberts, pictured below, copyrighted his design in 1976 and sold the rights to company Giant Coleco in 1982. Dolls that were made prior to the Coleco handover are worth the most.
Little Tilly Kay, a 1979 pre-Cabbage Patch Little People Original Doll sold for $550 in March.
These prices are incredible when you consider that, according to cabbagepatchkids.com, over 30 million dolls were sold by the end of 1983.
Cabbage Patch kids live on
As well as ebay, the dolls have previously been sold at auctions such as McLaren auction in Oregon, US. They auctioned a blonde haired, blue eyed girl and raised $475 in January 2018.
Needless to say, the world loves a Cabbage Patch Kid.
So is yours worth a fortune? You'll have to sell it to find out.
