There have been dozens of lines in the Cabbage Patch Kids' history. I am still tracking them all down, but there are an awful lot of them--especially after Coleco gave way to Hasbro. I find new lines in the thrift shops, new molds and body types, then I have to guess at what purpose they might have had, and then try to track down a line that matches. Lines like the Hasbro Preschool 'Kids make it easy--it's on the tag. These are listed in alphabetical order and by company. Lines with an orange asterisk (*), I either need a picture or more info about it.
As with the headmolds, this is a work in progress...and anyone who knows more about the lines I don't have a lot of information for, and better yet, pictures of known 'Kids in or out of the box, please contact me! : D Also, some of these lines. I have only seen listed on ebay, or heard about from some website or another, so I don't know if I have the right name for the line, or even that they exist. Those I am unsure of, I will say so on their pages.
A lot of "lines" were no different than normal 'Kids in basic make-up--they had the same bodies and the same sets of headmolds. But they were packaged or dressed differently...such as the Twins of various generations, and the Young Astronauts, or the Care Bear 'Kids. The accessories and clothing were different.
By the way, "BE" stands for "Babyland Exclusive" which you can only get from the Babyland hospital or the official CPK website.
Also, I must give my heartfelt thanks to those from ebay and elsewhere who have allowed me to use their pictures for these pages--I would not be able to complete a lot of them otherwise. You guys rock!
