#19 – There Isn’t One!

Challenge Day #19 – Huh? What’s happening? Naked kids?

Picture of two naked Cabbage Patch Kids with lemon blonde hair.

We can only theorize that there was an outfit planned for this number but, that for some reason, it was never produced.

Some speculate that it is the one outfit on the 1983 box that was never produced. The interesting thing about this picture is that they never produced a looped AA girl (or boy) like that in 1983 either. (FB Conversation, Feb. 21, 2022)

This outfit is difficult to record reliably. I always want to hear about tags that I don’t have recorded; however, only include the tights if you KNOW they came with that dress. It turns out that the tights are the distinguishing feature of the outfit. I need to know they came together.

At least some (not sure about all) Triang-Pedigree heart dresses are made of a different fabric with a waffle pattern look.

“Triple HK, 1983 KT Early HK kid – Bibbed denim romper with an aqua flannel shirt and red cap. Very unusual, however; is the romper itself which opens and closes at the side with 1/2″ copper naps which are embossed with USA style on each one. Snap fasteners also attached the straps to the bib. The shoes  . . . are white high tops with blue stripes, but the stripes are a dark teal shade, are very shiny and appear to be hand-painted. The inside soles of the shoes are stamped KT Hong Kong in bold black letters.” (Ref #4, Vol. 3 Iss. 3)

It is interesting that a second metal button outfit has been identified, and both outfits have the same red flannel shirt.

> The CPK logo changes in colour/look. This most likely happened due to changes over time, but may also be caused by the factory. I do not know at this time.

> A long-time collector believes that the plaid material (i.e. 15H)  was introduced later, around 84-85ish and that they introduced new patterns for the bib dresses over time. She believes that they stopped making them in 1985-86. (Leah Salt FB Conversation; Feb. 6, 2019)

Other Information

> The straps of the overalls are generally the same colour as the rest, but we have found some which are white cotton, and in at least one case, navy blue corduroy. There is currently no pattern that can provide a reasonable explanation for this.

> A few outfits (a very rare occurrence) have been found with circular snaps used at the legs and to secure the straps. Both recorded examples are from Hong Kong Kids, one KT and one P factory. (Facebook Conversation, Mar 2022) It has been confirmed that if these are only Hong Kong outfits, they moved on to buttons and velcro even before the HK outfits stopped being produced.

This outfit is extremely difficult to confirm as the tag is ONLY located in the shirt. It is too easy to put a shirt, jacket, and jeans together and claim to have a set.

Please provide pictures of shirts with tag codes I do not have, but only include the entire outfit if you KNOW the other pieces came with it. Mint-in-box (MIB) kids are extremely important if you have one. Refer to the Other Information section for details.
