Grand Opening of BabyLand General Hospital Set for Mother’s Day Weekend

Cabbage Patch Kids creator Xavier Roberts has announced that the grand opening of BabyLand General Hospital will take place on May 8 in Cleveland, Ga. The Official Grand Opening Celebration and Family Reunion, held during Mother’s Day weekend, will honor past, present, and future moms and dads who have loved and cared for their Cabbage Patch Kids.

The official celebration will begin at 9 a.m. at 300 N.O.K. Drive and will continue throughout the day with activities, entertainment, prize drawings, and costume characters. Roberts will also make a special appearance to sign, with proof of purchase, Cabbage Patch Kids adopted at BabyLand General Hospital and from www.cabbagepatchkids.com, during the week of May 2 to May 8. The appearance will mark Roberts’ first public signing in almost seven years.

The new BabyLand General Hospital is a 70,000 square foot facility, situated on 650 acres of land. Behind the eight-foot mahogany doors of the Southern-style home, a fun and fantastical world of Cabbage Patch Kids comes to life. The hospital includes the Father’s Waiting Room, nurseries, the Magical Crystal Tree, a birthday party room for kids, and more. Admission is free.
