I’m going to be very interested in your reaction. We are going from a passive, innocent doll, to a robot-type play thing that is filled with emotion.
In the next day or two, I’m going to call my pal Al Kahn, the marketing executive at Coleco who made the doll famous thirty-five years ago, to see what he thinks of the digital version.
Now manufactured by Wicked Cool Toys, the Cabbage Patch doll is highly interactive, with LCD screens that display a wide range of emotions. Retail price is $100.
The baby doll will tell you when it is hungry, when it needs to be burped, and when its diaper needs to be changed. The doll’s cheeks glow red when sick and requires a special interactive spoon with medicine.
For complete interactive features watch the video.
This is quite a different Cabbage Patch. It’s quite a different world.
