There's really no set guide to determining the value of any given Cabbage Patch Kids doll. Some of the rarest vintage CPK dolls can be worth a lot of money, while others may still sell for their initial retail price. Though not all vintage Cabbage Patch Dolls are worth very much, there are a few rare exceptions to keep an eye out for the next time you're cleaning out your attic. Ironically, some of the most valuable Cabbage Patch Dolls weren't sold under their now-famous name.
Back in 1978 when Cabbage Patch creator Xavier Roberts first began selling his dolls, he made each one by hand. Dubbed "Little People," each doll had a soft cloth head and was signed by the creator himself. These days, Little People can bring in hundreds of dollars due to their rare nature. Among the most expensive dolls from the Cabbage Patch Kids line seem to be those released in the first few years after 1982. This was when the brand was officially renamed 'Cabbage Patch Kids,' as the dolls began to be mass produced. Both vintage Cabbage Patch Kids sold in other countries and those still in their original packaging seem to sell particularly well. Here you'll find some of the dolls which have sold for the most money on eBay to help you get an idea of which dolls tend to be worth the most.
