|About Me and How I Started Collecting|
Hi, my name is Tiffany and I have been collecting cabbge patch kids since 1983. My first cabbage patch kid was Rory, 1983 Coleco. He had tan fuzzy hair with blue eyes and freckles. He has been everywhere with me including college. I had several other cabbage patch kids, but none were as special as Rory. I grew up and stopped playing with toys.
In 1996, I started surfing the internet, and I found ebay and tried to find a replacement Rory for my mom, since he was hers originally. As a poor college student, I could never quite afford a MIB one just like him, but I did join quite a few cabbage patch groups and discovered soft sculpture cabbage patch kids, which I though were ugly and couldn't believe people would spend so much money on them.
But then I went to Babyland for a cabbage patch gathering in 2000, and when I saw the soft sculptures in person I fell in love. I quickly began adding softies to my collection and the next year, I joined the collectors club, where I met a great group of people. Some of whom shared their 10th year as a collector with me -- you can see us getting our 10-year bud in the picture.
