Your old Cabbage Patch doll could be worth thousands of dollars

Must See 13/06/2019

Remember Cabbage Patch Dolls? They were all the rage back in the day. If you or your children didn't have one, then you wanted one!

And if you still have one hidden away somewhere, like in the back of the garage or in up the top of the wardrobe, then you could be sitting on a small goldmine!

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. 

Just this year, a Cabbage Patch Doll from called Teresa Ann sold on ebay for $2000.

The green-eyed cutie with a dimple in her left cheek still had the signature of creator Xavier Roberts on her bottom, which may have helped her fetch such a grand price. 

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.

Cabbage Patch creator Xavier Roberts 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.
