An advertisement in The Jerusalem Post announced: “At long last …. Cabbage Patch kids make aliya …. “It noted that at long last “the original world-famous Cabbage Patch kids have finally arrived in Israel.” Many children in Israel have heard about the dolls but only a very few lucky ones have received them along with adoption papers as presents from the United States and have been showing them off to friends who have not been as lucky.
