The Saturday before I left Georgia, my mom took Evelyn and I to the Babyland General Hospital. For those of you who have never heard of it, it’s basically a huge toy store for Cabbage Patch dolls but it’s set up like a hospital.
I used to love going when I was a kid. And when I was a little older than a kid. I’ve always loved dolls and the way they had it set up was so fun. You could walk through a baby nursery and the NICU. Then there was a whole schoolroom setup and playground scene. The main room was set up like an enchanted forest and had cabbage plants everywhere with babies growing out of them. There were twinkling lights and little fairies and a huge tree where a baby was born every time you visited.
Since I was a kid, they built a new location and redid everything. I have to admit, I was kind of disappointed. Maybe it’s because everything is better when you’re a kid but I’m thinking it was mostly because they transformed it from a cool exhibit to basically a big toy store. You can still walk through some baby nurseries but they aren’t staged…it’s just a bunch of baby dolls in cribs.
The exterior of the new building is incredible!
The inside was less impressive compared to the old one.
