Yup - my cabbage patch has crutches and leg braces !! I have a boy and a girl. They were briefly produced in the late 90's and are all plastic - no cloth like the original Cabbage Patch Dolls. I work in pediatrics and the kids really like being able to see the doll that they could take braces on and off. The clinic I work in now is hosp based so all toys have to be cloroxed so I brought them home.
The yarn was Wisdom Yarns - Partytime - it is a washable acrylic/wool blend that was self patterning.
