Summary of 500s Series outfits and a list of the outfits: The 500s Series
This outfit consists of a cotton blouse, cotton romper, and a white terry cloth bucket hat. The blouse has slightly puffed sleeves and is a single fabric pattern. The romper has a lace-edged bib front with the curved Cabbage patch Kid logo on it. It also has two rows of lace running across the backside and acting as ruffles. The straps close with velcro. The hat is made of white terry cloth and has ribbon ties to hold it on. The outfit came with regular lace-up shoes.
Coleco started selling this outfit in 1985. It likely ended production no later than sometime in 1986. If it is found on later kids, it was likely because the company was using up old stock.
My goal is to find every version of every outfit that was produced. Below is a record of each version of this outfit that I have.

If you have an outfit that is not recorded here or does not match my information, (e.g. You have a 506A OK that is pink, not yellow.) I would like to hear from you. Information is best sent in the form of pictures. For details, visit Taking Clothing Tag Pics.
Factory Variations -none so far
> Fun fact: This outfit can be found in the 1985 Coleco Catalogue (p. 3).
> Fun Fact: This outfit is one of the most commonly replicated CPK outfits. Consequently, you can find it in a variety of colours and patterns that Coleco never intended. They can also come with different styles of patches on the front.
