Cabbage Patch Doll Costume: This Is The Latest Baby Costume Trend

Expect to see A LOT of Cabbage Patch Dolls this year.


If you thought Cabbage Patch Dolls were a thing of the past, think again! On the kids’ section of Etsy, the Halloween costume has gained huge popularity, with the online store selling everything from crocheted Cabbage Patch wigs to recycled clothing patterns, Jezebel reports.

One Etsy store, Hook Wine and Stitches, has received such “mass orders” that it’s now “no longer promising Halloween deliveries on items made after Oct 10, 2015.”

According to reviews on the site, buyers are mostly drawn to this costume idea for its cute factor. “My baby girl is so cute with [the wig] on. When she wears it out [in] public everyone else loves it just as much as we do,” one shopper wrote on the site.

Another said: “This is perfect and just what we wanted! It looks so adorable on our little girl and fits perfectly.”

Cabbage Patch Kids became hugely popular in the '80s and became known for their yarn hair and adorable dimples. While the kids’ costume has always been a classic (and easy) go-to for parents on Halloween, its recent explosion in popularity is thanks to its practicality, as it keeps kids' heads warm.

According to Etsy store Keepsakes by Kim NC, the Cabbage Patch wig not only makes a great Halloween costume, but also “makes for a great photography prop, or is great for everyday use during the winter!”
