So, watching TV this afternoon, on The Couch they asked what viewers's favorite childhood toy was. I clearly remember my favorite toy...a cabbage patch kid. I taught myself how to braid hair in different types of braids on this doll and slept with her. She went everywhere with me....until my cousin told me that in America a redheaded green eyed cabbage patch kid had strangled it's owner in her sleep...
Well my cabbage patch kid was redheaded and green eyed and I fell for this story hook line and sinker LOL every night I would lock my doll in the cupboard, terrified it was going to strangle me in my sleep....I was all of 11 years old LOL
Picture is courtesy of Google and is not a photo of my cabbage patch kid....she got lost in one of our house moves...even terrified I still loved her and wouldn't have given her up for the world if I'd had the choice lol
What was your favorite childhood toy and do you have a particular memory associated with it?
