(Other soft sculpture dolls dating back to the 19th century were created using similar needle molding techniques.) His Little People were not offered for sale, but were 'adopted' each with their own individual name and birth certificate. Instead of paying a purchase price, those adopting Little People would have to pay an adoption fee. The Little People were first offered for adoption at arts and crafts shows, then later at, an old medical clinic that Roberts and his friends-turned-employees converted into a toy store, in. An early transaction at Babyland General Hospital worth noting is the adoption of the only Little People quintuplets ever born at the facility. Bennie and Jeannie Shelton of Cumming, Georgia paid $5,000 to adopt the one-of-a-kind set of five identical dolls. Also worth noting is one of Roberts' very first Little People dolls he ever created sold at an auction in Virginia in the early 80's for $3,000. Instances like this are among the reasons why Roberts was a self-made millionaire by the time he was 26 years old.
