Babyland General Hospital in Cleveland, Georgia is a place I visited out of love. It was the one thing my mother wanted to do when she visited me when I was living in Atlanta. Being a good daughter, I drove her to Cleveland to see the Magical Cabbage Patch.

If you aren’t familiar with Babyland General Hospital – it’s the birthplace of the Cabbage Patch Doll. It’s here creator Xavier Roberts built his hospital dedicated to finding permanent homes for all the babies and kids from the Cabbage Patch. It’s also the only place in the world you can witness the birth of a Cabbage Patch baby.

The minute you enter the Southern Style hospital you’re greeted by cast members dressed as medical staff. Nurses direct you towards the nursery where visitors can view the thousands of dolls waiting for forever families.

Big excitement ensues when a new birth is announced by the delivery room “doctor.”

Located in the scenic mountains of North Georgia, the hospital is a virtual toy land. In fact, it was voted one of the Travel Channel’s Top 10 Toylands.

It’s a fun place to spend a few hours, but I must admit I was glad we left the boys at home. This was definitely a “mother-daughter” trip.

Admission to the hospital is free, but come prepared. You may decide to take an Oath of Adoption and bring a precious baby home with you.

      Thanks for your email Desaray.
      Babyland General in Cleveland, Georgia is the only “official” Xavier Roberts Cabbage Patch doll hospital that I know of and upon further research the only one I can find. It’s definitely worth checking out if you love Cabbage Patch Dolls and you’re planning a trip to visit the North Georgia Mountains. http://www.cabbagepatchkids.com/
