Cabbage Patch Kids 

Cabbage Patch Kids may be the symbol of all that is sweet and good in the world, but their popularity was so overwhelming in the 1980s that parents rioted in toy stores to get their hands on one. As an added bonus, the dolls came in both male and female versions and a wide range of ethnicities.
