Cabbage Patch Land

For those of you who are not familiar with cabbage patch kids, think back to the 80's and 90's. The cabbage patch dolls were started in North Georgia. We have always had a tourist spot called Babyland General that was free to go through and see cabbage patch babies being born. lol. But 5 weeks ago they openned up a brand new building, and it is very large and beautiful. They went from 11,000 square feet to 73,000 square feet. There is a ballroom that you can rent out for major events. If you are ever in the North Georgia area and want something neat to visit and you have young children, this is it. Located in Cleveland, Georgia.
There are many crystals and gemstones throughout the facility.

This is the newborn nursery that the baby goes to right out after being born from the cabbage patch.

There were many Christmas trees decorated throughout the building. This one has little cabbage babies al over the tree.

This is where all the magic happens. Every 30 minutes or so a new cabbage doll is born. You even go through a whole adoption process to buy one.

Grace had a really good time. She had not been since she was about five and really didn't remember it. Which is sad because we only live 15 minutes from this location.

Wow Diane,
I would have loved this when I was little. I had one of the first Cabbage Patch Kids. My parents bought it for me right before the craze began.
Thanks for sharing your pictures!
Hope you have a blessed new year!

Looks like a wonderful place! I remember a boyfriend giving me a Cabbage Patch Doll when I was in high school. :-)

By the way, I love the photo of your house on the sidebar. Beautiful!
