To Dan Knowlton, his Cabbage Patch Kids are his children. "They're easier to cope with." True -- they never grow or die or have to maintain necessary life functions, but that doesn't mean you need 600 of them.
I saw this story and found it to be a little creepy. Some women are collecting life like baby dolls and they really look real but they aren't. This latest obsession has some women saying they collect them because they find babies to be soothing.
