Cabbage patch kids

The daily prompt says (oh and yes I’ve skipped the last couple of them, the movers came yesterday…then I didn’t want to look at the empty, dusty house, tonight I should be cleaning the empty, dusty house but I’m procrastinating and stopping after I finish a room)…anyhow…the daily prompt says was there a toy or thing you always wanted as a child, during the holidays or on your birthday, but never received? Tell us about it.

Do you remember Cabbage Patch Kids???  Back in the day when they were first released they weren’t the cheapest of toys.  You could actually buy fake ones at the market.  These days it’s all about Beats by Dr Dre headphones (seriously great headphones by the way) and whether they are real or fake, or real or fake handbags, purses, diamonds or non-diamonds (whatever the heck they’re called).

Even now Cabbage Patch Kids aren’t the cheapest of toys…seriously $80 for one and all for a real one with a name and a birth certificate…yes back in the day it seemed important.  These days yeah I don’t think so.  Even if I had a child I wouldn’t be buying an $80 Cabbage Patch Kid, I could think of probably 80 other ways to spend that $80 and 80 more interesting gifts.

    $80??? How is that possible? Where did you see one for that much? I bought the little girl I babysit a CPK last year for her birthday (with birth certificate and all). I got it at Target and it was only $24. If it had been $80 that would not have happened.
