Have you heard about the celebrity Cabbage Patch Kids that are currently being auctioned on eBay to benefit the organization CAN (Children’s Action Network)? The goal is to raise awareness and funds for this charity, which finds homes for U.S. children who are in foster care.
Intrigued, I searched for the dolls to see what celebrities were available. I am posting the options I found, along with my opinions and purchasing ranks for each:
Coming in at #5: Al Roker
Sorry Al, but I am not sure your doll would be appropriate for any child, mostly because your malocclusioned doll teeth look like they belong on a squirrel and could possibly induce nightmares. I mean really, what kid would want to sleep with that set of chompers next to his face?
Coming in at #4 Kristin Chenowich
The Kristin Chenoweth doll would be great for any child who…..ah….does not know who the hell Kristin Chenoweth is?
Coming in at #3 Katherine Heigl
I think the Katherine Heigl doll would be a popular choice for any girl who aspires to one day become an actress known for her diva behavior and love of cigarettes (both tobacco and electronic).
Coming in at #2 Steven Tyler
I can’t imagine a better role model for a developing child than a Cabbage Patch Steven Tyler doll. Besides getting a blinged out Cabbage-Patched Tyler (The hair feather! The skull necklace! An Anna Nicole Smith tee! Chest hair!) I am wondering if the doll also comes with a bong, a STD, and a box condoms?
And finally, my #1 choice: Symone-Raven
My favorite is the Raven-Symone doll because I think she could also pass for Gabourey Sidibe, so it’s like getting two dolls, for the price of one.
