Head Molds

Every mass marketed Cabbage Patch Kid has a number on the back or his or her head. This number is not your Cabbage Patch Kid's age, but the mold design of its' head. See the table below:

Head Mold #1 also known as "Shy Face" or sometimes "Small Face". This face features a sweet smile, eyes close together and no dimples. Some kids with this head mold had freckles.
Head Mold #2 also known as "Brat Face" This face has 2 dimples, and a long nose. It is common and mostly seen in 1983 when the Cabbage patch kids first hit the market. This is the most common mold for freckles as well.
Head Mold #3 also known as "Happy Face" This face has a bright looking expression, with a shorter nose, and a dimple on the doll's left cheek. This is probably the most common mold.
Head Mold #4 also known as "Paci Face" This head mold is popular on both full sized kids and preemies because it is the first mold with an open mouth that can hold a pacifier. There are two dimples, one on each side of the face.
Head Mold #5 also known as "Singletooth" This headmold has a very small nose, two dimples and most noticably, a top front tooth. It first appeared in 1985.
Head Mold #6 the second pacifier head mold, this face is much fatter and rounder than #4 and first appeared in 1985. Sometimes it's called "Chubby Pacifier Face". There is one dimple on the left cheek.
