Babyland General

I’m going to take all of you on a trip down memory lane with today’s visit to Babyland General, located in Cleveland, Georgia.  I vividly remember playing with my Cabbage Patch Kids when I was a little girl, and I’m fortunate enough to live near the home of the Cabbage Patch Kids!  I have six of my own, and a few years ago, Marley decided she needed to have one of her own to add to our collection, so we took a trip to Babyland General.  We’ve since visited twice, and it’s a fun and very beautiful place for kids and kids at heart!

01Babyland General is a gorgeous antebellum-style home located on 650 acres in Cleveland, Georgia, in the foothills of the North Georgia mountains.  The long, winding driveway brings you right up to this pristine home, and the wraparound porches invite you stay for a while.

02Upon entering the home, be sure to take some time to check out all of the cases of vintage Cabbage Patch Kids that are on display.  It’s really neat to see how the babies and kids have changed a bit over the years.

03You can’t visit Babyland General without having your picture taken in the giant cabbage chair!

04Babyland General has hundreds of babies and kids in various settings, including an incubator room and nursery.

05The babies and kids in the nursery are anxiously waiting to be played with by all the kids who come to visit.  They’re all hoping to be adopted and taken to their forever home.

06Each baby and kid is dressed up in a variety of outfits, including these SEC fans.  I’m quite partial to the Georgia Bulldogs kids in the middle!

07Just past the nursery, you move into the kids area.  The bigger kids have beds instead of cribs, and their rooms are decorated in fun colors.

08Moving out of the nursery and bedrooms, you move into the main floor of Babyland General.  Hundreds more babies and kids are hanging out in their tree house, climbing on swing sets, and having tea parties.  The detail that has gone into each display is so cute, but the best part is, you are allowed and encouraged to play with the babies!

09Be sure to keep your eyes open for the Bunnybees.  When the lights in the tree come on, that means Mother Cabbage is about to give birth!

10The head nurse is called to assist Mother Cabbage in the delivery.  Some babies are adopted before they are born.  If that is the case, that child gets to name their baby as soon as it is born!

11After each new baby is born, the head nurse takes them in to be weighed, measured and named.  Their birth certificate is filled out and they are then ready to be adopted!

12Marley adopted a cute little red-haired kid and took her to the salon to style her hair.  Isn’t she cute?!
