In the 80s, new toys, activities, and games created a craze

for Americans, especially during the Christmas season which

led to parents raiding and tackling others in stores. For example,

in 1984, when Cabbage Patch Dolls were released to stores,

parents tackled each other to get these new dolls for their

children. This caused chaos throughout malls across the country.

The video below is footage from multiple stores being raided

for Cabbage Patch Dolls during Christmas in 1984.
