Twinkle Toes Cabbage Patch doll with blonde hair

The 1980s were known for many different toys but there was only one toy that little girls wanted - Cabbage Patch Dolls! Made by Jakks Pacific, these dolls were unique. They weren’t exactly one-of-a-kind dolls, but there were so many variations of hair, eye, and skin colors that it seemed that way. Girls could get dolls that looked a lot like they did.

Fast forward to today, and Cabbage Patch Dolls are still wildly popular. They share a lot in common with their ancestors from the 80s, but one thing today’s dolls have that the earlier versions didn’t is Twinkle Toes (oh, and the yarn hair is now a thing of the past and has been replaced with soft, pretty synthetic hair). The “Twinkle Toes” are actually shoes that light up by Skechers, and the doll shoes are replicas of real Twinkle Toe shoes that they sell for young girls.

Cabbage Patch Kids have stood the test of time and are just as well-loved today as they were decades ago. Any Cabbage Patch doll makes a wonderful gift for little girls, but what makes Twinkle Toes Cabbage Patch Kids dolls so special is their light up shoes!

This Twinkle Toes Cabbage Patch Kids review will discuss their features, pros and cons, and other aspects of this toy to help you make an informed buying decision.

Review of Twinkle Toes Cabbage Patch Kids


Size - Twinkle Toe dolls stand 14 inches tall. I've been told they come in other sizes but I couldn't find any. However, given that these dolls are diverse in many ways, you might come across one that is slightly larger or smaller.

Physical Appearance – Each doll has a soft, supple and huggable body. And just like real girls, these dolls come in a range of hair colors, face shapes, eye colors and even nationalities. The doll you see on this page is just one of the many different looks available.

Scent - The original Cabbage Patch Dolls were know for their baby powder fragrance. Today's dolls smell still smell like baby powder, which makes them irresistible!

Light Up Shoes - Each doll comes with a pair of shoes that light up and shine when the bottom of each shoe is tapped, just like the real Skechers shoes do.

Trendy Outfit – Every doll, called a ‘kid,’ comes with removable clothing, and more outfits are sold separately. Your child can change her doll's clothes into a new outfit any time she wants to. The Skechers shoes can also be removed.

Adoption Certificate - Girls get to experience the fun of "adopting" their new babies with the included adoption certificates from Babyland General Hospital. Every certificate has that doll's name and date of birth, just like a real birth certificate, as well as the doll's family history and foot prints.

What Age Range Is This Toy For?

Twinkle Toe dolls are meant for little girls between the ages of 3 and 6 years old. Many girls tend to naturally gravitate towards baby dolls, and these are popular choices for toddlers and preschoolers because of how soft and cuddly they are.

Why People Like This Toy

Many moms, and even dads, who reviewed these ‘kids’ said that CPK Twinkle Toes dolls are adorable, look exactly like the photos. Parents also said that these dolls are great products, of top quality, very fragrant and cuddly because of their baby powder smell, and perfect "pals" for their child. The reviews also suggested that the price is just right.

More importantly, though, is that young children love these dolls. These dolls rate very highly on Amazon, and most of the reviews that I read said that these dolls were very well received by their children and grandchildren.
