OlympiKids: Official Mascot of the U.S. Olympic Team

In 1992, Cabbage Patch Kids were named as the U.S. Olympic Team’s official mascot. To celebrate this, sport-themed dolls were created and sold. Cabbage Patch Kids were again selected as the official mascot in the 1996 Olympics. Additional dolls were created along with Olympic pins, and this set of four figures. As you can see, each figure represents an Olympic sport: track and field, weightlifting, tennis, and gymnastics.

The dolls made in 1996 were manufactured in limited qualities and sold for approximately $275 each. These four figures were much less expensive, and can still be found today for $10-$20.
