Cabbage Patch Wednesday: 1985 CPK costumes

In addition to those cute official Coleco ‘Kid clothes that are smaller than a newborn’s clothes but not quite the same fit as a preemie, Coleco also produced costumed ‘Kids or ‘Kids in animal sleeper-suits. These were not the same as the Clown Kids who wore clown suits or the International Kids who came in the national dress of their country of origin.
