Cabbage Patch Dolls I got my first Cabbage Patch Kid when I was 12 for Christmas. He was a bald baby boy with pacifier. I named him Joshua. I knew I was getting him and took him out of the box right away and had him on my lap while I opened my other presents. My Mum had no problem getting a doll for me and my sister. I remember going to the shops, seeing a wall of cabbage patch kids to choose from and not a kid or parent in site. I am 34 now and still have Joshua.
