The Little People Soft Sculptures Doll This is a hard-to-find Soft Sculptures doll personally autographed in 1981 by Xavier Roberts, former owner of The Little People. In 1982, Roberts licensed Coleco to mass-produce his dolls under the name Cabbage Patch Kids. Those dolls had plastic heads, unlike the all-cloth fabric dolls made by The Little People. So, if you're a serious collector, you know that a vintage The Little People doll can be far more valuable than a Cabbage Patch Kids doll. If you happen to find one personally hand-signed by Xavier Roberts, it would be even more valuable.
That's what we have here. All of the labels on this doll show that it was manufactured by The Little People.The doll's bottom has an Xavier Roberts stamp on the left side. Most significant, the top left pocket of the doll's shirt bears Xavier Robert's personal, hand-written signature dated'81.
This is a large African American design with an afro hair style made of black yarn. It's in nice cosmetic condition with no rips, tears, unpleasant odors or damaged parts. One shirt pocket has a barely visible small stain that may come out with a Shout Wipe & Go (see last photo).Comes from a smoke-free and vape-free home. Includes a shirt, pants, diaper and socks (no shoes). It's almost 23 long from the top of its hair to the bottom of its feet.
