Cabbage Patch Kid Costume

Cabbage Patch Kid Costume

My husband and I decided to have our baby be a Cabbage Patch Kid for her first Halloween because everybody says she looks like one. We built it out of wood and painted it by hand, it is 1.75 scale of an original Cabbage Patch Kid box. We have included an official Babyland General Hospital blanket purchased from Cabbage Patch.

The birth certificate is an official Cabbage Patch birth certificate specially ordered with our baby’s real name and birth date. We dressed her in an outfit that is similar to doll clothes and yes that is her real hair. She is 6 months old. We had a lot of fun creating this fun costume and our baby loved it too.

Materials used:

Teddy bear
Teething toy
Blanket (two)
Baby outfit
Birth certificate
Cabbage Patch Doll and Box for reference


1. Measure actual baby and Cabbage Patch doll to find what scale to build to. Measure wood and trace cuts. Cut wood to match original cabbage patch doll box. Nail wood together.
2. Pick paint colors similar to original Cabbage Patch doll box. Measure and map where each item is to be painted. Trace with pencil first and then paint.
3. Select contents from my baby's actual stuff that will match the baby stuff that a Cabbage Patch doll comes with (including the birth certificate we already had from a gift.) Arrange and affix stuff inside wooden box to match the inside of an actual Cabbage doll box.
4. Pick a baby outfit that looks most like a doll outfit. Dress baby and fix her hair. Place baby in box, make her smile and take picture.

That is an adorable cabbage patch baby you have there. I thought it was a "real" baby in a box at first! Your daughter looks completely comfortable as a cabbage patch baby. It looks like you spent a lot of thought and time on this and your baby has a lucky future ahead of her if you and your husband are always this attentive!

Coolest Homemade Baby Cabbage Patch Costume 4

Homemade Baby Cabbage Patch Costume

Homemade Baby Cabbage Patch Costume

I decided to make my daughter a Baby Cabbage Patch costume because so many people say she looks like a doll! I got the idea, from another submitted costume, to put the box around the stroller so it could be taken out for trick or treating.

We took a box and fit it to the stroller, making a hole in it for the handle to stick out. Then we got white poster board and glued it to the box so it would be stronger and the paint would stick better.

We painted the inside of the box pink and the outside yellow. I printed out pictures of Cabbage Patch kids and of the writing on the outside of the real boxes and glued them to the outside of the box. I painted the bigger logos and the stork because I couldn't find them big enough to print out.

I printed out a Cabbage Patch Birth Certificate and put my daughter's name and birthday on it. I then glued the Birth Certificate and accessories inside the box. We took a sheet and draped it over the stroller and cut holes in it for the seat belt straps to come through.

She loved it, she just smiled at everyone and everyone else loved it too!

Stroller Idea
by: Caylee4ever

That is way too cool! Everyone would be like "awesome!" Good idea!

by: RUTH

I really like this idea. It seems to me that with most of the elaborate costumes that my kids just don't keep them on. This one looks pretty easy to make and even easier to keep the baby in it.
