Posted 09 October 2012 - 03:09 PM

An avid Cabbage Patch Kids fan has dedicated three rooms of his flat to his collection of more than 600 dolls that he says are his children.

Bachelor Dan Knowlton, 41, has spent thousands of pounds buying the soft cloth dolls and has even visited their 'birthplace', where he adopted his favourite doll after Mother Cabbage went into 'labour'.

He spends several hours a week caring for the cuddly toys - changing their outfits and dusting the beds, chairs and shelves where they sit.

I too am surprised he's a bachelor.  Well I suppose he doesn't want to loose custody or have to pay child support.

Weirdo.

My sister collects those dolls too.

Weirdo.

I've never the appeal of cabbage patch dolls, I think they're ugly - but each to their own.

Is she single by any chance?

Obviously the man has some sort of eccentric abnormality probably coupled with some hording tendencies.

So what?

He's certainly not hurting anyone with his collection or habits. He even manages an online community for collectors, so he's not an idiot, and he probably makes money from that as well.

I don't see the problem here. To each his own.

Hmm...The guy works for a living, and is so passionate about something in his life that gives him joy, he is willing to spend his own time, money, and effort on it.... Not breaking any laws, not causing others grieve...


More power to him.

Yep, it's odd, but such is the spice of life.

I wouldn't want one of those creepy things, not to mention over 600. :alien:  Got to wonder if he's okay in the head.
