Strawberry Shortcake

An American Greetings staple, Strawberry Shortcake started out like her contemporaries the Care Bears, Holly Hobbie and the Shirt Tales as a greeting card character produced by the Those Characters from Cleveland division. A cheerful rag doll with lots of colourful friends, Strawberry Shortcake debuted as a series of rag dolls, baby dolls, poseables and miniatures made by Kenner toys in the late 1970s. Known for their wonderful berry scent, the collection of dessert-monickered 5 1/2″ dolls came out in 1979 with Strawberry Shortcake, Blueberry Muffin, Apple Dumpling and Tea Time Turtle, Huckleberry Pie, Purple Pie Man and Captain Cackle in the lineup. But most 80s kids will remember the second wave best from 1980/ 1981 when the dolls got their distinctive pets. A second wave of redesigned dolls debuted in 1991 and since then, Strawberry Shortcake has taken on several redesigns so that the children of the 80s Children are still making merry with the Queen of Berry.   Full list of Strawberry Shortcake Characters from the TV show, Movies and Toys 1980s Dolls and pets Stawberry Shortcake & Custard Cat 1980, 1981 Apple Dumplin & Teatime Turtle 1980 (flat turtle on all fours, 2nd issue turtle is sitting on back legs) Blueberry Muffin & Cheesecake Mouse 1980, 1981 Angel Cake & Souffle Skunk 1981 Butter Cookie & Jelly Bear 1981 Almond Tea & Marza Panda 1983 Lemon Meringue & Frappe Frog 1980, 1981 Apricot & Hopsalot 1980 Crepe Suzette & Eclair Poodle 1983 Mint Tulip & Marshland Mallard 1983 Raspberry Tart & Rhubarb Monkey 1980, 1981 Cafe Ole & Burrito Donkey 1983 Lem n’ Ada & Sugar Woofer 1983 Purple Pieman & Captain Cackle 1980 Sour Grape & Dregs Snake 1981 Cherry Cuddler & Gooseberry Goose 1981 Orange Blossom & Marmalade Butterfly 1980, 1981 Lime Chiffon & Parfait Parrot 1981 Huckleberry Pie & Pupcake Dog 1980, 1981 Later 80s additions Dancing Strawberry Shortcake Peach Blush with Honey Lamb / Lemonie Belle Lanb 1985 Banana Twirl (no pet) 1985 Baby Needs a Name / Baby Without a Name Plum Puddin’ w/ Elderberry Owl (Plum Puddin’ started off as a male character and then returned 2 years later as a female) Fig Boot the monster Escargot the snail Flitter-Bit -Strawberryland Airlines Maple Stirrup the Pony and the Oatsmobile The Berry Princess The Berrykins: Strawberrykin, Blueberrykin, Raspberrykin, Orange Berrykin, Lemon Berrykin, Lime Berrykin, Plum Berrykin, Peach Berrykin, Banana Berrykin, Mint Berrykin, Rainbow Berrykin 1985 Raisin Cane w/ Dirt the worm Onscreen/ Print-Only Characters T.
