Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler Selected To Be A Celebrity Cabbage Patch Kid
Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler is one of five celebrities who have been recreated as one-of-a-kind Cabbage Patch Kids to be auctioned off on Ebay between Nov. 7 and Nov. 17 to help children find foster homes.
November is National Adoption Month, and the proceeds benefit the Children’s Action Network (CAN), a national adoption awareness organization who find homes for kids in the United States who are in foster care.
It was reported that JAKKS Pacific, Inc. are the toy company who’ve created the Celebrity Cabbage Patch Kids and the dolls are created in the likeness of famous singers, actors and TV personalities. Tyler’s doll wears a rocker inspired outfit and comes with its own mic stand. (Editor’s note: That’s him dressed in white in the middle, and if they took the lyrics of ‘(Dude) Looks Like a Lady’ a bit too literally, hey, it’s for a great cause!)
Other celebrities participating include Al Roker, Katherine Heigl, Kristin Chenoweth and Raven Symone. Those interested in owning a Tyler Kid and supporting this charity can go to the website to place a bid.
JAKKS Pacific worked closely with each celebrity to make sure their kid embodied their individual look and personality. Each Celebrity Kid will also come with its own autographed birth certificate. Actor and Board Director of CAN Henry Winkler says, “We are pleased to be chosen as the main beneficiary of this wonderful and creative auction of one-of-a-kind Celebrity Cabbage Patch Kids. With so many children in the foster care system there is tremendous need for support from our community. The funds raised in this auction will bring programs and services to these deserving children.”
