Flog It Blog It, The Cabbage Patch Kids R Back!
Speaking of all things retro, the children's craze from yesteryear is staging a comeback as the Cabbage Patch Kids return to our high street stores.This summer will see the revival of the 80s toy craze, as a whole new generation of Cabbage Patch children will be born. The return of the hideous, big headed, Chuckie lookalike creations will be accompanied by a major new marketing campaign. Shock, horror they were ugly enough last time and looked like they were suffering from a bad case of trapped wind. There was Teddy Ruxpin with his moving eyes and mouth that scared the living daylights out of me. Great time taking the cassette out and seeing how far I could run with the tape ribbon tied one end to the table and the other to my paw. What about the Tamogatchi? Be honest, you never fed it, so it died of starvation. Next it will be the dreaded ‘Beanie Babies’ with the endless new versions. They left the carpet looking like it had been struck by a major hail storm after I’d ripped them all to shreds. As for the Sylvanian Families that nearly ended tragically when I nearly choked on Walnut Squirrel. What about the Care Bear, who cares and don’t even mention the evil Furbies from hell? What was your retro most disliked toy?
