Cabbage Patch Dolls are celebrating their 30th anniversary this year with some limited edition dolls.

I can recall the year that they were the "it" toy of the season. In fact, I think that is the first toy I can remember receiving such a major designation.

I don't see the big deal about them. They look just like regular dolls to me.

I never saw the draw of them either. But then again, I don't often see the draw of a lot of these toys.

Beanie Babies
Furby
Tickle Me Elmo

I just don't get it.

Neither of us are girls, so they must see something about the Cabbage Patch Dolls we guys can't.

I have 5 dolls not including the poseable figures and other merchandise.

I got into Cabbage Patch late because I was born in 1984, and got my first doll in 1986 for Christmas. He's a baseball themed doll in a California Angels uniform, and he is my only male CPK doll. I used to take him everywhere. Even the beach (shopping area boardwalk not to the shore)He is my favorite CPK doll of all the dolls I have.

I think that the MLB themed dolls were made to try and appeal to boys.

I remember really wanting the 25th anniversary dolls.

I would say that now there is a demand simply for collectors and nostalgia geeks, in addition to the kids who enjoy them nowadays.

Even if I didn't get in on the craze, I'm glad they have survived into today for those who do (and did) enjoy them.

Apparently, this is a doll little boys can enjoy, too.
