News Report On The Cabbage Patch Doll Riots Of Christmas 1983

This a vintage news report from the vaults of ABC7 in New York highlighting the crazy demand for Cabbage Patch Dolls leading up to Christmas in 1983. Man, those parents are NUTS. Me? If my kids want something and it’s out of stock or hard to get that’s just too bad. There’s an important life lesson to be learned there somewhere, probably one that will lead to years of resentment and therapy. Maybe it’s best I don’t have children. I will drive cross-country to replace my dog’s favorite toy though.
