I have been a fan of Cabbage Patch Kids for as long as I can remember. I was child during the height of their popularity back in the '80's, but did not actually own one until September of 2013 as a gift from my husband. She was bought from ebay, a pretty girl in pink, previously loved, but in great condition.
Rather quickly I noticed that they could be bought quite cheap if they were heavily loved and in need of repair and new hair. I told my husband that I might like to try fixing them and if it works out I could donate them at Christmas to families that need some help. He loved the idea, and thus began my journey.
