One line of Cabbage Patch Kids dolls, the Cabbage Patch Snacktime Kids, was designed to "eat" plastic snacks. The mechanism enabling this was a pair of one-way smooth metal rollers behind plastic lips. The snacks would exit the doll's back and 'magically' appear into a backpack. The mechanism could be de-activated by releasing the back pack. They were extremely popular during Christmas 1996. The line was voluntarily withdrawn from the market following an agreement between Mattel and the in January 1997 following several incidents where children got their fingers or hair stuck in the dolls' mouths leading to safety warnings from Connecticut's commissioner, Mark Shiffrin.
Cabbage Patch Kids dolls are the Devil's receptacle, but that they have the mark of another kind of evil — that of greed and thievery.
Cabbage Patch dolls date back to the 1980s and the value of original models may exceed $50,000. The value of the dolls depends on popularity.
