Cabbage Patch Kids is a line of dolls created by a 21-year-old Georgia art student, Xavier Roberts, in 1978. Coleco began mass-producing the dolls in 1982. The mass produced Cabbage Patch Kids had large, round vinyl heads and soft fabric bodies, and were produced from 1982 to 1989. The Cabbage Patch Kids were later mass produced by several other toy companies and the toys are still in production today. The doll brand went on to become one of the most popular toy fads of the 1980s and one of the longest-running doll franchises in America. At the peak of their popularity the dolls were a must-have toy for Christmas. During the Christmas season of 1983, Parents across the United States flocked to stores to try to buy one of the Cabbage Patch Kids for their children, with fights occasionally erupting between parents over the hard-to-find dolls.
