It is presented as a birthing, nursery, and adoption center for premium Cabbage Patch Kids. Although the fad surrounding the dolls has largely died down, it is still heavily trafficked by diehard fans and curiosity seekers.New locationThe Babyland General Hospital looked to move into a new $2.5 million location in either Helen or Cleveland as revealed in the White County News Telegraph. Cleveland was decided on as the new site and it opened in the spring of 2009.

  • As a child of the 80s that always wanted a CPK, I had to come here for me. But I also wanted to take my kids here. The building is beautiful on the outside, and when you come in, there's several photo...  more »
  • A very unusual experience, especially for children. It is fun to watch the nurses birth the Cabbage Patch kids and see the excitement of the children wanting to adopt them. A must visit.  more »

  • We sent Joan Shelly in for surgery. She had quite the adventure getting there and getting home. But the staff, especially Nurse Denise, were marvelous. They not only fixed her up and cleaned her, but they gave her a nice new t-shirt. She is all clean and pretty again. Her arm is just like new. We think Babyland is the best and the craftsmanship makes it worth every penny to get a handcrafted original. Love Love Love Babyland General.
  • We make a stop here every year. Santa is here too for his last day! One of the few places that let you take your own pictures with Santa for free. $5 for milk and cookies with Mrs. Claus is a great value. The amazement of the kids getting to talk to the woman in charge is worth every penny. Our daughter picked up some new shoes for her cabbage patch kid as well so all and all it was a win-win for everyone! I remember my little sister having a cabbage patch kids back in the 80s. Now I love close to the actual hospital. A must stop if you haven't been before. A big thanks to all the staff at Babyland. You make this place very special! See you next year. Merry Christmas!!
  • It was so much fun. The staff was friendly and even though my kids are grown my husband and I had fun. Yes we adopted a "kid" and witnessed a birth. Worth going if you are young or young at 💓.
  • It was areal nice place and we all enjoyed visiting. The staff were not very friendly and seemed very short if you bothered them with a question. My issue was that if you wanted to change the name of your cabbage patch there is a 3 dollar fee, ok fine but I assumed they would print out another one with the same font as the original birth certificate...NO, some girl that writes like a 6 year old writes the new name with a horrible pen and horrible penmanship and it looked completely ridiculous, i made them give me a blank one so I can write the new info myself... Beautiful Place...bad staff, i visited 12/30/17
  • We had a party of 30 people including kids and we all got to see the delivery of a cabbage patch kid. The kids loved it and so did the adults. We are lunch outside at the tables and the kids were able play and run around. Love love loved this place!!
