Cabbage Patch Kids are heading back into shops this summer.

The plush dolls - one of the biggest toy crazes of the 1980s - will return to stores in August, priced £29.99 for a 14-inch doll that comes with its own adoption certificate.

Although the dolls’ look is similar to the originals, their clothes and style have been updated for the 21st century.

Supplier Jakks Pacific is planning a big marketing push for the dolls, including TV, online and print advertising.

In a throwback to the original Cabbage Patch craze, the company is looking at opening ‘birthing centres’ around the country where a nurse will ‘deliver’ new dolls to children.
