Here are some terms sometimes used by collectors. Thanks to Open Cabbage for providing this information.
Appalachian Kids, the 2003 line of soft sculpture CPK's
Baby Dash
This was the name for the activity of choosing your Collectors Club Spring Event baby. It got it's name because OAA used to round conventioneers up in the center of a gymnasium and make them run for the Spring Event babies, which were lined up on opposite sides of the gym - 100 in each line. This became a dangerous sport and as of the 2005 SE, has become more tame. Also known as Great Baby Dash.

Floor Baby
This refers to a 'Kid you adopt from Babyland, while you are visiting Babyland - as these babies usually sit on the floor, waiting for a new mommy or daddy. 'Kids adopted online are not considered floor babies.
Godmommy Rights
This is a silly term that the CPK community came up with a few years ago where one collector flips over a fellow collector's Kid and claims "Godmommy rights", which basically means, "I love your Kid so much that if you ever part with her, I want first dibs". Many collectors have spreadsheets to keep track of their softie collection and add godmommies to each Kid so if/when the time comes to adopt them out, they know who to call on first before a general call for adoption takes place.

Timed Adoption
Babyland used to have a payment plan for collectors called Time Adoption where they could pay $57 up front and then pay the balance within 90 days. This made things more affordable for those who don't have big bank accounts, but some people abused this system and put several Kids on Time Adoption not thinking about the balance they needed to pay within the 90 days and ended up cancelling their orders. OAA decided to scrap the payment plan system a few years ago and one now has to pay in full when ordering. This service was also known as "TA" for short.
