Babyland General Hospital

Remember the Christmas of 1983? That was the year that Cabbage Patch kids were the must-have present. Today there’s still a sizable group of collectors who purchase Cabbage Patch Kids one, five and even ten or more at a time. Some of these folks have over 5000!

Xavier Roberts was the guy who invented Cabbage Patch Kids. In 1977 he was living in Cleveland, Georgia and working at the Unicoi Park gift shop. That year he sold 80 of his hand stitched creations in the shop. Originally called ‘Little People’, he changed the name to Cabbage Patch kids in order to have something unique. Sales rose swiftly and today more than 100 million Cabbage Patch Kids have been ‘adopted’ by people around the world.

Babyland General Hospital has been operating since 1978 and was selected by the Travel Channel as one of the top ten Toyland’s in the country. The new babies are ‘born’ here from mother cabbage, taken to be weighed and measured and then put out for adoption by visitors. The hospital has Preemies in incubators, older kids as well as the newborns and all are given a dose of Imagicillin as well as lots of TLC!
