|Down with CPK!! ( j / k )|
My Child dolls were an adorable part of the 80s! My theory is that they were Mattel's
way to compete with the popular Cabbage Patch Kids, who at the time were produced by Coleco.
And in my mind, CPK was NO competition. They may have had the cute accessories, but MCs had THE FACE!
Unfortunately, my view was not shared as the My Children line had a
short production run, ending around 1988. Coincidentally, 1988 is when Mattel purchased the
rights for CPKs. Cabbage Patch Kids continue their run even today. BOO!!!
(ok.. well, CPKs aren't soo bad *smile* but MCs are my #1 love! *smile*)
I received my first My Child doll when I was only 5, for Christmas, and I still have her. Her name is Hope. She's brunette with green eyes in a purple pinafore dress. You can see a picture of her and others in my personal collection archive. Now I would say I own over 120! A bit addicted? Hmmm.. Probably!! lol
