Coolest 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.
