The resulting co-branded Cabbage Patch Kids were packaged with a Carvel-branded ice cream cone. In this line, WCT released new additions like Little Sprouts, a toyline of tiny collectable dolls, and Adoptimals, plush pets who interact with the Kids.
While sales of the dolls and other licensed products declined precipitously in the late s, the dolls have become a mainstay of the toy industry, and one of the few long-running doll brands in history. These dolls were available by direct mail from the Danbury Mint. They have a rigid fabric body with porcelain legs, arms, and head. Touch sensors in the hands enabled the toy to detect when and how it was being played with in response to its vocalizations. For example, the doll might say "hold my hand" and give an appropriate speech response when the touch sensor in either hand detected pressure.
It also had a movement detector to show the positioning of the doll and whether it was sensed to be on its belly, back, or even upside down.
A special plastic 'drinking' cup containing a hidden magnet, which could be identified with the aid a small reed relay in the built into the head of the toy above the mouth, to signify when it should be seen to be 'drinking'. The dolls were programmed to signal their "awareness" of each other with a short phrase, e. The joint synchronised singing of 'rounds' being particularly impressive.
The inclusion of the microphone was to delay the search and communication with another of its type when the ambient noise was above a certain level. Roberts converted an old clinic into a "hospital" from which to sell his dolls, originally called "Little People".
The facility is presented as a birthing , nursery , and adoption center for the Cabbage Patch Kids. In accordance with the theme, employees dress and act the parts of the doctors and nurses caring for the dolls as if they are real.
Babyland General moved to a new facility on the outskirts of Cleveland, Georgia in and has been voted one of the Travel Channel's top 10 toylands. Two half-hour animated specials were produced based on the Cabbage Patch Kids. Though Xavier Roberts was the creator of the Cabbage Patch Kids brand, many of the brand's defining characteristics — such as the dolls' overly round faces and that they came with an adoption certificate — were taken from Martha Nelson Thomas , an American folk artist from Kentucky.
Before Roberts became involved in the toy industry, Thomas had created and marketed her own line of dolls, called Doll Babies, which she sold at local arts and craft shows and markets.
