Cabbage Patch Kids: Adventure in the Park
Take a stroll through the park with one of the Cabbage Patch Kids! Can you
help them get back to the BabyLand Park entrance?
WHAT'S THE STORY?
It's exercise time! Anna Lee, one of the Cabbage Patch Kids, is warming up
for a day of athletic adventures in the park--and she's taking you along! So
stretch your muscles and get ready for a workout. This adventure is no picnic!
As you stroll through the park, you'll encounter obstacles they never told you
about in the Cabbage Patch. You'll leap onto floating lily pads, jump over cabbages and bouncing balls, and hop over puddles so deep they could float a
ship. And that's the easy part! By the time you get back to the Park entrance,
you'll know just what kind of physical shape you're really in. Are you ready
for the workout?

HERE'S HOW TO PLAY
Strolling through the park
Ah, sunshine! Fresh air! Enjoy it now because once you get into the park, you'll
be too busy to notice. Move the Control Stick left or right to make Anna Lee walk away from the entrance and into the park.
Time is not on your side.
Cabbage Patch Kids' have to be back at the entrance to BabyLand Park before
dark. When that blue bar at the top of the scene turns completely orange, you'll have to leave the park--so don't dawdle!
Big girls don't cry...
...but Cabbage Patch Kids' do! When Anna Lee falls down she'll cry for a few
seconds before getting back to the action. Can't really blame her, can you?
Leapin' lily pads!
That lily pad floating on the pond is your ticket to the other side. Wait until
it floats close to shore, then press the Side Button or Action Button while
moving the Control Stick toward it to jump right on. If that's too tough, press
the button to grab a swinging vine. When the lily pad floats under you, press
the button again to land on it.
Take a swing!
You can ride that lily pad clear across the pond and jump off when you get to
the other side, or grab the next vine and jump off when you swing over solid
ground. If you jump too soon, you'll be sorry--and all wet!
Ahead, a cabbage
This park sure has some pretty scenery, doesn't it? Don't get too absorbed in
it, though, or you might trip over one of those cabbages. When you spot one
in your path, press the button to hop over it.
Are those trampolines up ahead? It sure looks that way! Take a running jump
to land on the first one, then press the button while moving the Control Stick
toward the next trampoline to jump onto it.
The big apple
You can jump all you want before hopping onto the next trampoline. And if you
happen to notice an apple in one of the trees overhead, press the button again
(but don't move the Control Stick) and go for it! If Anna Lee grabs the apple, you earn extra points.
Hop, skip and jump
This one will really bowl you over! Press the button to jump over the rolling
ball or you'll find yourself lying flat on your back. Getting tired yet?
Now we'll find out how good a jumper you really are! This part of the park is
filled with Puddles--and they're very deep. Press the button while moving the
Control Stick toward the next puddle to jump from one dry spot to another.
Jump and jump again.
You're in double trouble now! There's another cabbage in your path and those
bouncing balls are heading straight for you. This is a job for high jumpers.
Are you up to it?
Best kid on the block
This looks like fun! Press the button to jump onto the first block. Then press
the button while moving the Control stick toward the next block to jump
If you make it over the blocks, you're practically home free. When you get back
to BabyLand Park entrance, give your weary muscles a rest. Your next stroll
through the park won't be any easier! Don't rest too long, though. The timer
is still ticking!
Well, this is just dandy! To add to your troubles, the sky is raining dandelion
puffs! Better keep your head up and watch out. This situation is nothing to
Fountains for youth
Kids from the Cabbage Patch can't resist playing in fountains! Press the button
to leap onto the first one, then press it again while moving the Control Stick
left or right to jump onto the next. Be careful, though. If you don't time your jumps just right, you'll end up doing the backstroke!
All fired up
How nice! Someone left a campfire burning for you. Unfortunately, the only way
past is over it. Take a running leap and hope for the best. And don't pay any
mind to that bee buzzing overhead. It won't sting now, but watch out for it later!
There's something fishy about those puddles. Better look before you leap or
the fish will catch you!
Up in a puff
It's back to the trampolines again. But there's more to it than jumping. This
time, you'll be dodging falling dandelion puffs as you go.
This ride's a lily!
There's another pond ahead--and not a single vine in sight! It won't be easy,
but you'll have to jump right onto that lily pad and ride it clear across.
If you make it back to the park entrance this time, you deserve a pat on the
back. You're in excellent physical shape! But your workout's not over yet.
Take a few deep breaths and hit the road again. Your stay in the park lasts until
there are no more Kids left to play with. Let's see how long it takes!
When the game is over, you'll return to the Game Option screen. Are you up to
another workout? If so, you can play the game again! There are more than 50
screens to cover!
