Costco had an amazing deal for these cuties! $13 for all 3. Couldn’t resist. Brings back memories of my Cabbage Patch Kids days when I was growing up.
My first one wore a sailor suit, had brown hair and eyes, and its name was Quincy on the adoption papers. It also had the doll designer’s signature, Xavier Roberts, on the doll’s bum. That was a sign on authenticity.
I had others wearing sundresses, a velvet Christmas dress, and another with cornsilk hair rather than typical yarn. When they first came out, the prices were exorbitant and my mom refused to buy me the original. I thought her the cruelest mom depriving me of childhood joy.
I got an imitation one without the special signature on the butt not the carefully sewn lines on the hands. It looked like a smowman’s mitted hands, which I thought a disgrace. But I didn’t care.
In the following years, my family members discovered my obsession with them, and any special gift was something related to these dolls, especially when I was recovering from a head injury after a car accident.
These precious dolls got lost over the years from moves, negligence on my part, and given away to my younger cousins. But I’ll never forget Quincy! White sailor outfit with navy blue stripes on the sailor collar.
