Vintage Strawberry Shortcake Dolls-Rare Collectible Accessories And CompanionToys

by LPerry

Remember Strawberry Shortcake? She was coveted by little girls everywhere back in the 1970's and 1980's. View collectible dolls and accessories from this era.

Can Strawberry Shortcake really be that old ? Do you remember the popular dolls of the 1970's? If you were a young girl or teenager back then, you may recall the adorable pink and green Strawberry Shortcake character. She became an instant hit with girls because of her fragrance; she smelled like strawberries.

I remember this doll and all the department stores that sold bedding sets with her character on them. It has been decades since she first came on the scene and it looks like she is more popular than ever with the young set. The original dolls, accessories and companions are now old enough to be considered vintage, not unlike some of you who may be reading this now.Vintage is good.

Strawberry Shortcake and friend Berrykins

Strawberry Shortcake has an adorable companion named Berryins that carries a pouch of magic perfume. This duo is a true collectors item that gained popularity in the early 1980's.




A Real Shortcake

This cute little 5 inch doll is over 35 years old. It's fascinating to think that Strawberry Shortcake dolls were born the year I graduated high school. I remember thinking how clever the names were and how appealing they were ( and still are) to a child's imagination.

Adorable Butter Cookie

This cutie comes with her own hat and matching shirt. Butter Cookie was Strawberry Shortcake's little baby friend who originally came with her own companion; Jelly Bear.

Over the years, many of the side accessories to the dolls can become lost, so this particular Butter Cookie doll is missing her companion.

I love the freckles on her face and the button nose. Depending on how well she was stored, she may still hold a butter cookie scent; magic for any doll collector or little girl!

Vintage Strawberry Shortcake Dolls Bring Back Childhood Memories

For many folks, bouts of nostalgia can lead them to look for those things that they loved as a child. Have you ever wondered what happened to your favorite girlhood doll? Collecting toys and dolls from the past is not only a great hobby, it helps keep precious, happy memories alive.

The doll or toy you used to play with as a child can hold fascination for your kids and grandchildren too. Some are so important that they are passed down from one generation to the next.

Just seeing the pink, green and white theme of this character reminds me of my first few babysitting jobs. All the little toddler girls had some version of Strawberry Shortcake decor in their rooms. There were curtains, rugs, sheets, comforters and super-cute shams and pillowcases.
