You knew it was a matter of time before I put some vintage Strawberry Shortcake up- I thought it would be a huge undertaking where I would need to list all of the characters (I still might do that at some point). So let's talk about good old Strawberry: She was on greeting cards before becoming a toy.
Love that packaging! All of the Strawberry Shortcake line of dolls had good smelling hair that matched their dessert names. They also each had a little pet with some sort of a desserty name. Most of the dolls had tights and cute little shoes and hats- Lets take a look at all of the Strawberryland products too (by Kenner)- all of us 80s girls were mad for these toys. They were rounded and were in Valentine's day colors. We were so sold!
I had this bake shoppe- you could push the table down into the ground in order to close up the case. There were little pies and crusts and plastic ice cream scoops- it was a great toy.
Here is the carrying case..
This is some sort of a Merry Bug- I cant see the name...
You could also collect little plastic figurines and keep them in this cute case...
There was a big house called the Berry Happy Home and you could buy separate furniture...
olley, the Garden House Gazebo and the Merry Berry Worm.

Here is the evil Purple Pieman! He smelled like cinnamon apple pie!
I always loved the shoes! Lets look at a few pair!
