Growing up I was very anti-doll and very pro-stuffed animals. I never got the appeal of hard, uncomfortable dolls. And even though Cabbage Patch Kids tried to find a happy medium, I couldn't get past the round, big, and hard heads. My sister's especially freaked me out because it was supposed to have a pacifier in its mouth but after that got lost the doll would just stare at us with puckered lips.
Anyways, wouldn't you much rather find a warm, furry, fat pug in a head of cabbage instead of a doll?!
